Tory Burch Collection: Fall/Winter 2019 

“Our Fall/Winter 2019 collection is inspired by Black Mountain College, known for its unconventional approach to education and for shaping the trajectory of modern art in America. This season is a mix-match of revamped classics — floral prints, graphic stripes, menswear materials and romantic silhouettes. There’s a modern eccentricity to raw fringe, exaggerated ruffles, knife pleats, cut-glass jewellery, deconstructed bags and sharp boots.” — Tory Burch

Silhouettes: Fall/Winter 2019 reflects an effortless modernity with uncomplicated, relaxed silhouettes. Polished pieces — tailored trousers, structured loden coats, and classic blazers — balance billowy shapes. There is a refined magpie approach to layering — sporty parkas draped over evening gowns, a striped slip under a gauzy shirtdress…

Palette: Rooted in muted neutrals — crisp white, black and the brand’s signature navy — the collection is warmed up with earthy, autumnal hues of umber brown, deep red and cayenne. Pops of vibrant color — bright yellow and green — inject energy.

Prints & Patterns: Bold stripes, vivid paisleys and feminine florals play off one another to unexpected effect. A collage print blends archival photography and whimsical illustration.

Fabrications: Herringbones and checks are coolly classic while crochet patches convey an understated nostalgia. Fluid ruffles and a print-on-pleat technique bring movement and dimension. Sequins and square-shaped paillettes add a rich luster. Deliberately unfinished embroideries are raw and imperfect, nodding to technical artistry of Anni Albers, a central figure at Black Mountain.

Accessories: The textural mix carries through to accessories. Loafers — a mélange of velvet, leather, and brass hardware—have a bookish sophistication while high-shine Mary Janes bring a retro girlish allure. Variations on our iconic Lee handbag — including a new deconstructed version — are key. Bold glass crystal earrings and pull-on boots channel an Eighties vibe.
