Tory Burch tells a Philadelphia story with fall 2017 collection

Tory Burch grew up in Philadelphia, and for Fall 2017 she chose to, in essence, write a love letter to her roots. Inspired by Katharine Hepburn's fierce character from "The Philadelphia Story," Tracy Lord, this collection was every bit as luxe and preppy as you'd expect from the iconic designer, with a little extra glamour.

Rather than the double T logo you're used to (those famous flats!), this season featured a gorgeous scripted TB, gilded and placed on a few elements of the collection including the first white coat. She opened the show with a few different takes on winter whites -- and they were oh so gorgeous.

Tracy Lord's influence on the collection can also be felt in the details (which, to by fair, Tory has always done incredibly well) -- the shoes, the jewelry, the use of silk -- the opulence was not to be missed.

While much of the collection draws from "the fearlessness and irreverence" of Katharine Hepburn's character, certain elements also drew from Tory's childhood in the City of Brotherly Love. The pendant necklaces, for example, were inspired by her father's cigarette lighter.
