New York Fashion Week: Tory Burch offers great footwear, but is a bit wobbily in the clothing department

February 18, 2010 | 10:00 am
Tory Burch aimed her fall collection at downtown galleristas rather than her usual ballet flat-wearing country club set. The designer mixed hard and soft, masculine and feminine. And though it was great to see her pushing herself, she didn't totally find her footing in this edgier territory.
Among the best pieces were a fur-trimmed anorak, a sleeveless black dress with a front panel of lipstick red sequins, and a black feather top worn with tweedy shorts (nothing too radical there). What didn't work as well: scribbly print pants and a spidery orange sweater.

All was forgotten though when it came to footwear -- the perfect high-heeled lace up utility boots, or velvet and crystal booties that sparkled like disco balls.
