One can always rely on Tory Burch for a touch of nostalgia and a dose of romance. For Autumn/Winter 2017, the designer showcased her collection on Valentine's Day, leaving a book of love poems on every guest's seat.
Romance played out on the runway, too, although of the feminist variety, inspired by Katharine Hepburn's role in The Philadelphia Story. Cue wide-leg trousers, winter whites and briefcases worn as handbags. Knits paired with skirts make for a winning combination for AW17, seen here with chunky Fair Isle jumpers teamed with twill, corduroy or jacquard skirts that fell below the knee. Meanwhile, skinny turtlenecks appeared under velvet or chiffon dresses to up the warm ante but downplay the dress-up factor.
Shearling jackets, barn jackets and plaid tweeds added a wholesome, country feel to the line-up.
