Designer: Tory Burch
Location: David H. Koch Theater, Lincoln Center
What was it like: The theater proved to be the perfect set for Tory Burch's spring/summer 2014 collection, with its dramatic spiral staircase, 40-foot gold leaf ceilings and overall grandeur. And combined with the runway's oceanic blue, the collection's message of "easy glamour of the French Riviera" was loud and clear.
Why we love this collection: The inspiration was: "The French Riviera in the late 1960s, Romy Scheider's character in La Piscine and mixed with garden elements." The result? A collection that was like a breath of fresh air: Models walked down in structured silhouettes in a fresh color palette of green, white and coral, which complemented lattice detailing and garden prints seamlessly. Jewels, Queen Anne's lace prints (in organza and dupioni fabrics) and beaded embroidery delivered a generous (and dreamy) dose of glamour.
