Tory Burch Beauty (Bohemia Extremia)
Tory Burch is one of my favourite designers for many reasons. The ultra-luxe ethos of the bohemian spirit sings to my philosophical and spiritual core and inclination. Her Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear was, you could say, a play on passions. I loved the Marrakesh mentality of a land infused with colour and culture. In the world of Luxury and High-End Fashion Brands there is room for the imagination – to place yourself in the shoes of that woman, with that plan and that style. It is a collision of the brave and the bold. Poetry, I find, is much the same. Who is this person you speak so kindly of? What story did they imprint on your psyche to illicit such visceral and vivid recollection of a time past by – or perhaps not yet reached.
“MARRAKECH MEETS CHELSEA. INSPIRED BY LONDON BOHEMIA, FALL 2015 FOCUSES ON BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED EMBELLISHMENTS, A MIX OF TEXTURES, CAREFULLY ENGINEERED PATTERNS, BIAS CUTS AND THE PLAY OF MASCULINE AND FEMININE. ACCESSORIES — INCLUDING ARROWHEAD JEWELRY, SMALL SADDLEBAGS TO OVERSIZED CARPETBAGS, BOOTS WITH CARVED METAL HEELS AND MULES WITH STUDS — ADD TO THIS BOLD MOOD.” – Tory Burch
This collection blossomed with a lush colour palette; Marsala shades (Official Pantone Colour of the Year 2015), embroidered mastery and rich fabrics. The scene was set for romantic nights in Morocco with a lover (or two!); strolling in the Saadian Tombs with girlfriends, reminiscing the release of an old love. These memories keep us reverent, restoring wonder in our eyes and fire in our hearts.
This is what fashion does. This is what poems do. This is art. This is design. This is love.
I don’t need a
Frenzied (with) preoccupations
That blind from
The sweat is still trickling and the
Pan is still round –
Ancient dances –
Fawning from one meaning
To the next. Extreme is not
For those unaccustomed to the
Evolution of the senses.
Want to see it
Screaming for air –
