Uber blogger Leandra Medine (also known by her more popular alias, @TheManRepeller) said it best when she described the Tory Burch Spring 2015 show as “Nantucket on steroids” on her Instagram feed yesterday.

Nantucket – as it’s oft stereotyped – is the playground for the North Eastern American elite, a place where the rich play Frisbee on the lawns of their perfectly manicured multi-million dollar properties. After all, it wouldn’t be a Tory Burch show without a sartorial reference to good old American-ness. Was this collection fourth-of-July approved? Tory’s basket weave fabrics and cotton crochet skirts answered a definitive yes.

However, according to the show notes, the Spring 2015 collection was intended to pay homage to the spirit of French artist Francois Gilot and the time he spent with Picasso in Vallauris. As you may remember from Burch’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, the designer referenced a French film for the starting off point of her designs. It seems to me, ladies and gentlemen, that we might have a Francophile on our hands. Paint-dipped jewelry and crepe de chine button-down shirts brought in elements of the European reference Burch was trying to achieve, but all in all, the full-length canvas tank dresses and georgette smock dresses did not achieve that je ne sais quoi that leaves the audience entreating for more.
