A stylish moment in an iconic locale: Meow Praowphan shows us how it’s done. In honor of our new store in Bangkok, the Thai interior designer and founder of Bangkok furniture stores Quattro takes Tory’s Liv dress for a spin, looking simple and elegant with the most minimal of accessories. The beautiful backdrop? Singapore’s storied Raffles Hotel, birthplace of the local Singapore Sling cocktail and a haunt of such writers as Rudyard Kipling, Ernest Hemingway and Joseph Conrad. It’s the best of both worlds.
A former curator of the decorative arts at the New-York Historical Society, Emily Satloff set her sights on the jewelry world and never looked back. First she became an antique jewelry dealer. Then, in 2008, launched Larkspur & Hawk, a collection inspired by the Georgian era — right down to its centuries-old art of foiling gemstones to up the sparkle factor. So if you’re looking for some tips on shining this holiday season, she’s your girl. Here, wearing Tory’s Reese tunic, Emily shares her advice.Read More

Women rule. It’s a simple truth — and the name of the Tory Burch Foundation’s latest initiative, which, in partnership with Politico and Google, celebrates women driving change in business, advocacy and politics. Just this week the trio co-sponsored a special summit, Women Rule: Marks of Leadership, featuring a number of such leaders: Google’s Susan Molinari, Good360’s Carly Fiorina, The Case Foundation’s Jean Case, The Muse’s Kathryn Minshew and Beverly Bond of Black Girls Rock, among many others. To further support the cause TBF teamed up with the cause-centric — and female-run — design company Prinkshop on cool graphic t-shirts, notebooks and totes (above). A portion of the proceeds from each go to the Tory Burch Foundation… ensuring that even more women rule.

There are a lot of holiday traditions in Brazil — colored rice for Christmas; silk for Santa — but perhaps the most famous is wearing white on New Year’s Eve. Which is why we’ve launched a special all-white collection for our customers in Brazil. To get the inside track on more of the night’s festivities, we chat with Camila Alves, who hails from Itambacuri in Southeast Brazil. Here, she’s wearing the collection’s Venus tunic paired with Tory’s Vanessa jacket and Connor bangles.
P.S.: For Stateside fans interested in this special holiday lineup, it’s available at our Bal Harbour store, too.
The scene? 1968 France. The mission? To photograph potential locations for an upcoming Stanley Kubrick movie. But while carrying out the assignment, Andrew Birkin’s lens found an unexpected pair of subjects: his sister, Jane Birkin, and her new beau, Serge Gainsbourg. Over the following 12 years, Andrew captured the magnetic couple in thousands of candid, intimate moments: at home in Paris, vacationing on the Isle of Wight in England…. The mostly black-and-white shots — which date through 1979, the year before the two broke up — have been compiled in Jane and Serge, A Family Album, offering a rare view of their daily lives.
