Tory Burch brings an uncharacteristically darker and edgier vibe to her latest collection for pre-fall 2014, inspired by the work of obscure artist Gertrude Arndt.
Known for brighter, preppier, and embellished pieces, Burch’s inspiration from Arndt led her to incorporate a more subtle color palette with an emphasis on textures and graphic prints. Arndt’s more famous works of art incorporate repetitive dots, which Burch also incorporated into her collection, using small, stretched out, and large dots. Other patterns and textures include stripes, weavings, pleats, florals, and geometric shapes.
While there may be a lot going on visually, the silhouettes have a simplicity to them that nods to the tailoring and styling done by Burch. Whether worn as shown, or as individual pieces, the collection has appeal.
We Want To Know: With a darker and more masculine twist, would you wear any piece, or complete look, from Tory Burch’s pre-fall 2014 collection?
