Tory Burch Makes Renaissance Glamour Wearable for Fall 2014

Tory Burch may still be best know for her best-selling flats and her preppy-chic staples, but her runway collections have become increasingly sophisticated and exquisitely styled. At her Fall 2014 show, materials ranged from melton wool and fur to quilted jacquard, giving the collection an ornate quality that seemed to reference Dolce & Gabbana and renaissance glamour.

According to the show notes, the collection was inspired by the armor Burch’s parents collected, which explains the chunky gold belts, as well as a series of colorful tapestry brocades and old-fashioned florals. In some cases, the inspiration was translated more literally—as in the case of a series of leather and metal-ring separates that looked like battle armor, or the use of liquid-y silver lame in a pleated skirt. Later in the collection, opulent jacquard and brocade prints upped the luxury quotient, and eye-catching belts with chunky gold chains were used throughout.

The styling of the collection also deserves high marks—from the pairing of light, crepe-de-chine dresses with chunky knits and tough over-the-knee boots to ladylike, lace-up heels worn over woven knee socks and thigh-highs. A little detail we’ll be looking to copy right away: ornate gold earrings worn on just one ear. Bottom line, we have a feeling we’ll be seeing more than a few of these head-to-toe looks on street style stars in September.
