Fashion Week Tory Burch Flagship - Its all about the Shoes

The interiors of Tory Burch's boutiques are just as fabulous as her clothing line! The Tory Burch shop at SouthPark opened last weekend.  We bet you'll be swooning just like we are over all the mirrors, orange, lucite, and brass!
In each of her boutiques, Tory collaborates with architects Steve O'Neil of O'Neil Langan Architects and Daniel Romualdez, of Daniel Romualdez Architects. They have all three worked together since Tory opened her first store- what a successful relationship!

Isn't this David Hicks-inspired turquoise East Hampton shop jawdropping?  She was smart to leave some of the bamboo end tables a natural color instead of automatically painting them white.  The clean lines of furniture are the perfect pairing for dramatic color and pattern of the rugs and fabric. 

Who says you can't mix metals?  These stainless steel walls are amazing when paired with shiny brass trim.  Once again, she wisely uses simple parsons tables and x-benches so that nothing seems fussy.  Anything too patterned or with frenchy legs would detract from the overall look.  We like the "fancy not fussy" take on this shop. 

Like the Manhasset boutique, her shop in the Meatpacking District also uses stainless steel walls with brass trim.  White sofas, mirrors, brass-and-glass tables, and purple velvet abound.  There is a lot going on, but the use of matching pairs of sofas, benches, chandeliers, and tables makes the room balanced and symmetrical. 

Your eyes are not deceiving you- the sofa in the back of the picture is upholstered in the same fabulous geometric fabric as the walls.  The result is amazing.  What a clever addition of brass trim to the simple white parsons table!  And the classic seagrass rug is a nod to the beachy environment.

Lastly, Tory's Scottsdale shop incorporates natural wood, taxidermy, and antler chandeliers, but the result is not the least bit hunting-lodgy.  Is that a patchwork cowhide rug we spot?
