Beach getaways are the best. It’s the perfect chance to be lazy and do absolutely nothing besides rolling around on the sand all day, every day.
Sadly, we can't be on vacation all the time (as much as we want to), but that doesn’t mean we can’t find escape in other ways — like our clothes.
That’s where Tory Burch’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection comes in. Full of breezy beach resort-ready pieces like tunics, floral frocks and casual sandals, it’s as perfect for a tropical island getaway as it is for the city.
Funnily enough, the Spring/Summer 2016 range was actually inspired by Cambodia’s Unesco Heritage Site Angkor Wat, and not a seaside locale. A trip to the Southeast Asian country got Tory Burch thinking about “beauty in unexpected places” that have been “enhanced through time and nature”.
Bold, opulent elements are juxtaposed against natural fabrics like cotton and linen, washed in vibrant, tropical colours of blue, red and — of course — Tory Burch’s signature orange. There’re also a number of wraparound gowns that recall our Southeast Asian sarong, which appeared as exotic as they were urban, especially when paired with jewellery crafted in beautifully aged, oxidised metals.
