Tory Burch at Fashion Week

Reviews of the Tory Burch and Bill Blass collections



Day 4 at New York Fashion Week: Tory Burch and Bill Blass

I must admit that I didn’t’ have high hopes for Tory Burch. All I could think of were the ballet flats with the Gothic looking crosses. But I was pleasantly surprised with all the gorgeous colors. In case you were wondering if there’s a color trend for spring? Yes. It’s yellows and corals. From Monique Lhuillier to Tory Burch to Tracy Reese, these two colors have emerged very strong. Although Burch’s designs brought back some unflattering hemlines, in general the clothes were the most wearable I’ve seen since I’ve been here. From the shoes to the handbags, to the shorts and white pantsuits, all of it seemed like the easiest collection for the average woman. Who doesn’t love that? Also, the models were by far the most beautiful. They seemed fresh and alive.

Next up was Bill Blass. Without being too mean…I must say that the collection was a little elderly. Beautifully constructed, but slightly suffocating (photo at left below). Dare I say a little boring? In Blass’ case, the models looked severe and overwhelmed by the clothes. Gottex swim wear is the line to watch for suit trends. All one-pieces, these folks have bejeweled, bedazzled and detailed the living bejesus out of a very small piece of fabric. Not exactly something to wear to the beach, but poolside maybe? I loved the colors, but couldn’t imagine wearing any of them.

Stay tuned….my last post will give you all the gossip and sad dark truths of New York Fashion Week.
