Before the Fall 2014 lookbook, before the accompanying playlist and wallpaper downloads, there was the runway show at Lincoln Center. That’s when Tory, in the midst of New York Fashion Week last February, first unveiled the current collection. We take you back to that pulse-pounding day in this video, directed by filmmaker Robert Nethery and set to the tunes of YBU and Jonell’s Soul Magic. Consider it your insider’s view to everything that went into the Fall 2014 debut, from the fittings to the front row.
Among the myriad inspirations behind the Fall 2014 collection is a subtle nod to Japan.

2014 is a year of numerous anniversaries — including Tory’s own — and among them is the fourth centenary of the passing of famed Spanish Renaissance artist Doménikos Theotokópoulos, a.k.a El Greco. To celebrate this Year of El Greco, The Frick Collection in New York presents Men in Armor: El Greco and Pulzone Face to Face, which pairs one of only two full-length portraits by the artist (above, right) with a rarely seen work by his contemporary Scipione Pulzone, painted just a year prior (left). The connection? Both feature, as title suggests, noblemen dressed in full armor — an increasingly prestigious symbol of status and military valor at a time when, curiously, armor in battle had started to become obsolete.

Clean, strong silhouettes. Bold embellishments. Tapestry brocades and a mix of textures. Our Fall 2014 collection started with the armor Tory’s parents collected — and finishes with subtle references, whether in the glint of metal on a top-handle bag or the chain-link trim on a navy wrap skirt.
