Meet Tory Burch's Robinsons
American socialite-turned-fashion designer Tory Burch has paid the ultimate tribute to her parents by naming her latest collection after them! The savvy businesswoman, who opened her first store in the Middle East in The Dubai Mall late last year, has called the range The Robinson Collection, as she was inspired by her jet-set parents.
“My parents, Buddy and Reva Robinson, loved to travel and I wanted to create a collection that a world-traveller could use at home or overseas. It epitomises classic style, is made of Italian saffiano leather and breaks in beautifully,” she reveals.
And even though she created it with her parents in mind, Tory admits she can’t keep her hands off her favourite bag and wallet! She adds, “I’ve been using the satchel in cricket green and the continental wallet; both are perfect when you have a full day."
Luckily for fans of the attainable luxury label’s accessories, there is something for everyone – and it’s not just about the designer’s preferences! Tory dishes, “We have a lot of great shapes in poppy colours – there’s something for everyone. There are totes, shoulder bags, clutches, mini bags, wallets and small leather pieces.”
