continues to reign as one of the fastest-growing luxury brands. A quick study of this collection made it easy to understand why. These looks had a very inviting sense of ease, and the shapes were all familiar, flattering, and accessible. So far, so safe. But if Tory Burch, the person, isn't out to challenge with her clothes, she's nevertheless devoted to making them feel special. The specialness here was in the fabrications and appliqués—a floral parka, for instance, was made from dévoré nylon, while a pretty white maxi dress was embroidered in handkerchief-inspired abstract flowers. Elsewhere, there was patchworked nubuck suede, laser-cut bonded cotton, lacquered guipure lace. There was a lot going on, in other words, but it was handled with a nice sense of restraint. Burch has pulled back quite a bit on her brand's urban-boho vibe, replacing it with a more appealing mix of matter-of-factness and romance. All the looks here—bar the odd exception, like that maxi dress—are perfectly suited to the office. It's difficult to introduce atmospheres of comfort, romance, and uniqueness into clothes for the cubicle. Burch deserves ample credit.
