Tory Burch Introduces Tory Sport
The activewear collection includes clothing, bags, shoes and accessories for Running, Studio, Tennis and Swim, as well as Coming & Going, a category of pieces that can be worn before and after a workout.
Tory Sport will be available exclusively at torysport.com and at a pop-up shop in New York City beginning in September with a Flatiron-district store to follow in 2016. The pop-up shop will be located on Elizabeth Street in the space where Tory launched the brand’s first boutique 11 years ago.
CEO and Designer Tory Burch said: «We focused on the elegance of sport—the performance aspect is a given, not a design detail. I have always been passionate about sports, and activewear is something I have wanted to do for years. Classic silhouettes from the Seventies have always resonated with me. Our goal was to design a collection that balances fashion and function.»
Tory Sport is designed to reflect the beauty of the game and the empowering role that sports play for women. To help women fearlessly follow their dreams, the brand supports the Tory Burch Foundation, which empowers women entrepreneurs by providing access to capital, education programs and networking events.
Inspired by the grace and strength of athletes, Tory Sport speaks to the active lifestyle of women who take a wear-anywhere approach to sports-influenced clothing. The silhouettes range from pleated tennis skirts, anoraks and fitted leggings to rashguards and swimwear. Stylish separates—neoprene coats and skirts, oversized sweaters and classic track suits—complement the performance pieces.
Old-school stripes and florals are modernized by precise detailing and high-tech materials that ensure the ultimate in fit and performance, including COOLMAX Fabric by INVISTA, which maximizes performance with moisture-wicking and quick-drying technologies that help you go the extra mile; Schoeller Fabric with NanoSphere, a durable performance fabric that repels water, oil and dirt to keep you clean and dry; and Sensitive Fabrics by EUROJERSEY, which resist chlorine —10 times more than most fabrics — and provide the benefit of four-way stretch, UV protection and a long-lasting fit.
