If you have old ideas about Tory Burch as a line full of logo medallions and sensible preppiness, it's probably long past time to be a little more open-minded about what Burch and her team are doing at the ever-expanding, ever-evolving contemporary brand they've built into an empire. The logos and well-scrubbed conventionality still exist within the brand's accessories line, of course, but that's true for a lot of brands whose scale requires that they maximize the number of consumers they reach--after all, women need things they can carry to work and that will look presentable for more than a season or two. What Burch does with her seasonal collections is far more sophisticated and interesting, though, and its well worth your attention (and, potentially, your dollars).
Tory Burch's inspiration for Pre-Fall 2017 was globetrotting Italian furniture designer and spirtualist Gabriella Crespi, and the clothes and bags mine the gypset look and come up with Moroccan and Indian influences in 70s hues. The most notable new design of the bunch is a big-buckled saddle bag, which comes in patchwork and studded versions but is most compelling in a single color of nubuck with tonal covered hardware. Check out all the bags below.
