Art Class with Tory Burch & Franz West

Oh darling! If you could only have one takeaway from the spring-summer 2015 collections, make it all about individuality. And I can not think of any other American fashion designer that has more individuality than Uptown darling, Tory Burch and famed artist Franz West, whose colorfully woven "Uncle Chair" inspired part of her spring 2015 collection.

In keeping with spring's artisanal spirit, Tory Burch transformed the utilitarian stripes of the "Uncle Chair" into a prep-styled plaid. Typically, woven fabrics tend to be heavy and bulky, but not at Tory Burch. She had an ingenious solution to this problem -

Burch adapted this basket weave into digital print, without sacrificing its details and optical dimensions. Ultimately, giving the wearer that vivid pattern without the added weight - and for your fashion snobs its called a trompe l'oeil effect (trick of the eye). You can thank me later!

Tory Burch's extraordinary take on webbing also translated into fabulous accessories worth taking for a stroll down Madison Avenue. Vibrant sandals - all riffs on chair webbing, and digital printed leather handbags. Now, that's one class you don't want to skip!
