Tory Burch's collection for Fall Winter '18 was pretty and romantic laced with a sporty casual vibe. Set amid rows of pink carnations in imitation grass, the sumptuous fabrics and caftan-esque silhouettes, accessorized by patterned silk scarves and booties with just enough lift to escape the kitten-heel category, stole the show. Lace dresses in pierrot collars, pretty tulles sweeping the floor were topped with chunky sweaters, very countryside meets girly, meets romance, meets casual.

Cardigans, parkas and shearlings were thrown over intricately printed flowy dresses, shirt dress with indigo denims and quilted jackets over georgette dresses made the collection utilitarian. Dominated by a graphic botanical print Burch said had been inspired by Lee Radziwill (it was called Happy Times after her memoir).

The impression was of a collection coming together somewhere between town, country and a bookish dream state. That may well be the place where Tory Burch is happiest.
