Summary: Tory Burch is keeping the "1970's from the United Kingdom" alive. For her Fall 2011 runway show, Burch uses her theme of last season's "Seventies" to expand on the idea by using American sportswear to make the collection a bit more modern and easy-going. The fur collared coats and tweeds brought a bit of a cosy feel to the silks and chiffons.

I was not a fan of the collection as a whole. There were pieces that could work as separates but using the pieces together sometimes makes each ensemble look a bit costume-y. I also felt that the colors were a bit dull and that brought the collection down a bit. 

Color Palette: burgundy, bordeaux, black, cream, midnight blue, gold, ivory, heather grey, chocolate, purple, white, burnt orange, tan, slate grey, navy, gold, nude, forest green, jet
