Admiring interior prints for fashion collection? Tory Burch was inspired by David Hicks’ work of his interior designs. “Bold. Audacious. Brilliant,” Burch says of Hicks’ work. In her spring/summer 2018 collection, she was helped by his daughter, Ashley Hicks, to adopt some of his signature prints.
The prints have been injected into six aspects of the collections, silhouettes, palette, prints & patterns, fabrications, and accessories. In silhouettes, relaxed shapes capture the season’s effortless vibe. Slouchy, wide-legged pants, bohemian caftans and a wrap dress cut from scarves balance preppy shirts and a classic trench for a collection that is feminine and familiar, modern and easy.

Meanwhile, on the palette, understated neutrals are the key colours. Namely crisp white, soft stone, and toffee. They are all contrasted with the bursts of colours from poppy red, tangerine and mustard yellow—complemented by leaf green and muted shades of pink and chambray.
In prints and patterns, kaleidoscopic and geometric motifs as well as stripes in different iterations and scales. An iris print references Hicks’ love of gardens, and a Moroccan-inspired pattern pays homage to his global influences. On fabrications, draped silk, cashmere, and soft crepe have set a laid-back tone underscored by designs crafted from terry beach towels and accessories in natural vachetta. Lace framing on silk and contrast borders on cotton draw on interior design concepts, while sequins, laser-cut elements and beautiful metal embellishments add dimension and texture in unexpected ways. Graphic buttons and hardware add a signature touch.
Nothing is cuter than the accessories as well. Casual-chic style lover would be pleased with these. It ranges from pool slides and flat mules made of simple strings of leather to crossbody bags with graphic charms and oversized totes in terry towelling.
