The classically modern Tory Burch aesthetic stood out from the minute Tory entered the scene, and her playful-yet-wearable clothing and bags are integral parts of many women’s day-to-day wardrobes. Named for Tory’s parents, Buddy and Reva Robinson, the Robinson bag collection is a pillar of the brand; it’s one of Burch’s most recognizable and sought-after designs.
One of my earliest memories after starting PurseBlog was going to the Tory Burch Bal Harbour store for a personal appearance by the designer. Tory had just left the boutique and was walking away as we arrived, but my mom said, “You have to meet her!” In true mom fashion, she caught up with Tory and helped me say hello to the fashion icon.
Time continues to fly by, and today we welcome May to our calendars.
The saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers,” and with the start of May, we wanted to kick things off with a fun video. Starting today, we will be welcoming each new month with a fun video celebrating one of our favorite bags of the moment.
It seems like everyone wants a little piece of the exotic bag market these days. Not only has Louis Vuitton recently introduced a full line of crocodile and alligator bags in the past few days, but a Twitter tipster pointed us in the direction of the Tory Burch Robinson Alligator Tote, which we believe to be the most expensive bag Burch has ever produced by a long shot.
I doubt Tory Burch would be irritated to hear me say that hers is not a “heritage” brand by any stretch of the imagination. It hasn’t outfitted anyone for wars or saddled up any horses in its time, and that’s fine; not even billionaire Burch can go back in time and move back the birth of her brand by 100 years.
