Tory Burch celebrates Princess Diana with NYFW show
NEW YORK (AP) — From a linen and leather pant to a macrame tweed skirt, Tory Burch looked to one of the 20th century’s most important fashion icons for inspiration for her spring-summer 2020 collection: Princess Diana.
At her New York Fashion Week show Sunday, Burch said she tried to capture Diana’s strength and style in outfits that included linen dresses with rope sashes and a wool sweater with a sequined collar.
And, bonus, she put sneakers on her models sporting a range of looks.
Burch’s show notes say the collection brings together English garden florals, a restrained volume and her own take on the 1980s.
The mother of Prince William and Prince Harry, Diana died in a 1997 car crash in Paris that also killed her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed, and the driver.
