Summer 2016 clothing collection and accessories trends by Tory Burch on display at Bloomingdale’s, New York.
LEFT: MICHAELLA TUNIC DRESS – Ornate cutwork defines the look of the Michaella Tunic Dress, a statement piece from our runway show. Inspired by a vintage style, this dramatic floral-crochet design has an easy straight fit, a plunging neckline, mid-length sleeves and a tea-length hem with side slits, all delicately trimmed in guipure lace. Done in blue and red — one of Tory’s favorite color pairings — and lined in opaque organza, it’s a glamorous riff on a classic caftan, perfect for channeling the summer’s bohemian chic.
CENTER: MARISA DRESS – The Marissa Dress is a sporty-meets-sophisticated rendition of a classic tunic, straight from our runway show. Inspired by a vintage piece, it has an easy straight fit, offset with delicate guipure lace at the seams, borders and an asymmetrical front — a detail that puts a fresh slant on its clean silhouette. Fully lined and cut with a thigh-grazing hem, it can be styled with flats or heels to suit any occasion.
RIGHT: SAVANNAH TUNIC DRESS – Ideal for laid-back days and getaways, our Savannah Tunic Dress is made of gauzy crinkled cotton, giving it an effortless and lightweight feel. Inspired by a vintage piece that belongs to Tory, it has a straight fit, a notched v-neck and an A-line skirt that combine to create a flattering shape, while topstitched seams and an embroidered and tasseled tie belt lend definition. This easy-wearing style is crisp yet casual — perfectly capturing the season’s bohemian chic.
LEFT: TRISTA SKIRT & TOP – Lightweight, ladylike and artfully detailed. Tory Burch’s Trista Skirt is inspired by the design of a vintage apron — reimagined in subtly textured cotton crepe with bands of crochet lace and a hand-embroidered hem. Perfectly comfortable, this pull-on knit style has a softly draped A-line shape and satiny stretch lining that feels great against the skin. It can go seamlessly from workdays to off-hours, making it a versatile wardrobe essential.
CENTER: ASHLEE DRESS – Bold in color and rich in detail, our Ashlee Dress features abstract, free-floating blossoms, towel-stitched along the front. The embroidery brings a textural element to the otherwise simple crewneck shape, done in structured cotton ponte. It’s cut narrow at the top to highlight the shoulders and falls to just above the knee, making it both super-flattering and easy to wear.
CASHMERE ROSEMARY CARDIGAN – A chic go-to for every day, our Cashmere Rosemary Cardigan is a fine-gauge knit that’s lightweight and perfectly soft to the touch. With its wide portrait neckline — cut to elegantly frame the collarbone — and flattering slim fit, the sweater looks great layered over a button-down or worn beneath a jacket when cooler temperatures call.

TOP & BOTTOM TABLES: MILLER SANDALS – An extremely comfortable style for sunny days and warm getaways, Tory Burch’s popular Miller Sandals— in glossy snake-print leather with a laser-cut logo, in patent leather with a rainbow-striped laser-cut logo and in patent calf leather with a graphic laser-cut double-T logo— adds a vibrant shot of color to just about anything in your wardrobe. This chic alternative to the basic flip-flop has a cushioned leather insole, padded with soft, breathable foam, so that it’s perfectly walkable and effortlessly polished.
MARCIA METALLIC TOE RING SLIDE SANDALS – Marcia Metallic Toe Ring Slide is a simply chic style to walk you through the season. It features a deconstructed ‘T’ — elongated, sculpted and polished into the graphic focal point of this smooth gold leather sandal. Comfortable and versatile, it can lend a gleaming finish to any warm-weather look.
TOP TABLE: LACE-UP FLAT ESPADRILLES – A rustic beach shoe, revisited — with a chic Sixties twist.
ROSELLE METALLIC THONG SANDALS – Pretty and polished: Roselle Metallic Thong Sandal revamps a casual staple in delicately perforated gold leather. It features a cut-out double-T logo placed front and center, as well as a durable rubber sole. It’s a great warm-weather style in a shimmery neutral shade that goes with nearly everything.
BOTTOM TABLE: CRAB FLAT ESPADRILLES – Playful detailing meets classic maritime stripes on our Crab Flat Espadrille. Perfectly chic — from ship to shore and everywhere in between — it’s made from striped fabric with a leather appliqué on the front, contrast edging and rustic jute trim. The shoe is lined in soft canvas and has a durable full-rubber sole, ensuring comfort with every step.
COLOR-BLOCK FLAT ESPADRILLES – Perfect for vacation, and relaxation, our Color-Block Flat Espadrille is an effortless, tomboyish pair that works equally well on the beach or in the city. Made from two tones of leather, it features a jute footbed and a full rubber sole — an update that brings added durability and traction to the silhouette. It can bring chic contrast and comfort to everyday looks.
TOP DISPLAY: ZOEY WEDGE SANDALS – Leather Zoey Wedge Sandals feature a graphic cut-out double-T logo — lending a signature detail to the strappy silhouette. Finished with a metal buckle, this style is perfectly versatile, easily making the transition from daytime to relaxed outings, all season and beyond.
