You might think that women don’t like to go out of the box when it comes to clothes, but in reality there are many women who don’t like following society’s fashion views. 

Tory Burch knows this and showed it in her Fall/Winter show at New York Fashion Week Monday, with the focus being on pairing daywear with activewear. The idea spurred from the pandemic live bringing a fresh approach to fashion and the desire for less structure and more comfort, without sacrificing style.

“I love sport and we have a sports collection, but we wanted to look at that through a luxury lens, and I see women wearing those types of things and mixing it for evening and that’s kind of the interesting part,” Burch said in an interview after the show.

The looks are mainly dominated my black, brown, and other earthy tones, but the look also has a playful side with splashes of bright colors like chartreuse and fire engine red. Burch said she got some inspiration from the Memphis design movement from the 1980’s, which focused on postmodern decor featuring abstract and asymmetrical shapes and bright colors.

“I was actually roughly looking at Memphis and some of the pottery and carpets, but I also intentionally didn’t want it to reflect a decade. But I knew that color and vibrancy and joy had to be part of it because I think we’re all ready to move on from the last two and a half years,” she said.

There were many people who attended but among the celebrities in the front row were Uma Thurman, Katie Holmes, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and actor Aimee Lou Wood. This fashion week has more in-person shows than 2021’s schedule because of the pandemic many of the past shows were forced to have an offer only virtual shows.

Holmes said she felt the energy was coming back to New York. “I love Tory Burch. I love her clothing and she’s a phenomenal woman, so I’m so happy to come out and support her … and it’s fun and inspiring to be around people creating.”
