Tory Burch‘s Pre-Fall Collection 2017 is inspired by the elegance and grace of Gabriella Crespi, the Italian furniture designer turned spiritual seeker, and made for the woman.

Modelled after sculptural furniture pieces, the suede Alma Sandal evokes the cosmopolitan chic of Milan in the ’60s. It comes in suede, with colourful fringed threadwork, an ankle strap and a substantial wooden block heel and platform, both hand-carved with scalloped edges. This shoe can elevate daytime looks and bring statement polish to evenings.

Glamorous for day or evening, the Loretta Sandal is inspired by the ’70s and the opulence of Indian brocades. This new-season favourite has a towering block heel with a flash of metal on its curved interior, a sizeable platform and a supportive ankle strap, completed with a T buckle. Its elegant shape and artful details can bring drama to any look.

The Carlotta Slide is transformed with the opulence of Indian brocade from simple to standout. This backless square-toe pair is contemporary, yet beautifully captures the season’s nostalgic mood with masculine contours and a small block heel. Comfortable and versatile, it can complement everything from sharp tailoring to everyday jeans and more.

The Phoenix Mule is a statement in eclectic elegance. Inspired by a shoe Tory found on her travels, this towering slide brings stripes and whip-stitching into its textural mix. It has a leather applique at its centre, tied off with a beaded fringe, and rests on a high cylindrical heel that’s wrapped in stacked and sliced rawhide.
