Tory Burch in Beirut: An All Spring Fresh 2013 collection

U Magazine and BelleBeirut Editors with Chiara Rimoldi

Fresh, colorful, versatile, outstanding and at the heart of Beirut! The Tory Burch boutique of Aishti exploded in colors at the Spring-Summer 2013 collection display brunch!

A pronounced American taste, which is a signature of the successful designer, characterized the collection which stood out as very energetic yet very versatile. Despite the electric hint, the neat cuts and pass-partout chic lines of Tory Burch accompanied this collection, just as every other previous collection.

The brunch started with a streaming of the FW13 collection; and some comments by Ms. Chiara Rimoldi -the outstanding lady handling the brand’s PR/Marketing efforts in Europe and the Middle East- who presented the concept behind the brand. Most insiders’ comments revolved around how simple-chic and versatile the designs are.

It didn’t escape us that the crowd of fashionistas and fashion editors/bloggers were particularly drawn to the colorful pieces of the SS13 displayed line. Coral and pink bags stood out; and the Marian Tote -a newby at Tory Burch- was one of our favorites!

Besides being truly a star collection, the Tory Burch line also carries the thoughtful humanitarian initiative of Tory Burch’s Foundation supporting and empowering women tie-dyers in Guinea.

Fashion is best expressed in pictures, this is why we will leave you with two galleries, one from the event and another one displaying our editor’s choice of our favorite ten pieces of the SS13 collection!

And for all of you lovers of this outstanding designer, visit her personal blog: The Tory Blog and don’t forget to drop by the Tory Burch Beirut boutique (Abdul Malek Street, Downtown).
