Yes, we know that we are still waiting for the cold-weather season, but since Fashion Week began and we’ve seen some uber-cool stunners, we had to share them with you as well. So, we stumbled upon Tory Burch’s spring 2013 collection and remained completely hooked. “Spring 2013 is about the American prep remix. We were thinking about a stylish magpie who picks up special pieces while traveling around the world and always mixes them with classic sportswear,” Tory says.
Stylish and wearable, the designer’s latest collection is rife with practical, feminine and youthful pieces. “So there is guipure lace and tie-dye or making a polo shirt into an evening dress, and then pairing it with Moroccan slippers,” Burch explained. The line features tie-dye dresses and skirts, shorts, tops, jackets, uber-hip and comfy slippers, and beautifully printed and embellished bags.
Oh, and that dress at the end of the show! Absolutely fabulous! Tory, who loves to travel, revealed that a trip to Morocco in June inspired the final look. “I thought it was a new way to do evening, taking a polo shirt and then turning it into an evening dress and pairing it with Moroccan slippers. It’s a little more laid-back elegance,” the designer told ELLE.com.
Models had a natural makeup, with luminous complexion and no color to the cheeks. “We’ve done a no-makeup makeup look — really fresh skin, a little bit of lip balm, contoured the eye with a soft grease, gray eyeshadow and filled in the eyebrows,” says Diane Kendal.
As for the hair, we are head over heels with those achingly lovely soft, pulled-apart fishtail braids, one in the front and another in the back. “I felt like the girl had been traveling, she’s in the environment and these braids have fallen a little apart, so there’s this romance and organic quality to them. I wanted it to feel very loose and textured, almost like wheat. I wanted to see the little imperfections — there’s a sensuality to it,” Eugene Souleiman explained.
