Blasblog: Hip-Hop And Hipsters In The Tory Fan Club

-------


At Tory Burch’s presentation yesterday at the Prince George’s Ballroom, it was clear that the designer’s appeal is branching beyond ladies who lunch. Way beyond. Kanye West, Santigold, and LL Cool J served as hip-hop ambassadors, while Burch fans Leigh Lezark and Greg Krelenstein represented the hipster demographic. One could argue that Burch’s current boyfriend, Lyor Cohen, a bigwig at the Warner Music Group, helped get the former crew familiar with the brand, but when I spoke to Kanye at the presentation he told me it was all about Tory. “I like what she does,” he said. “She’s classy and she’s elegant. I totally respect her aesthetic.” Lezark and her posse felt much the same way. “Everyone thinks she’s the coolest,” Lezark gushed.
