If you’re in the market for a new coffee table book, Tory Burch has you covered. And in case you don’t think you are, we’re just going to leave this here:
Christmas is only 70 days away.
(We know, we just panicked too.)
Today, the beloved designer launched her first book, In Color, to explore what colour means to her.
Here are six notable reasons why you, or someone you know, may like it:
1. It Makes a Great Gift
If you’re looking for a gift for that fashion-loving female in your life, the book is a no-brainer, especially for the girl who has everything (and especially when accompanied by one of Burch’s handbags…hint, hint). With the holidays right around corner, it also makes a great hostess gift.
2. It’s Colourful
True to its name, it’s pretty, um, colourful. Burch herself sees the world in colour and anyone who’s a fan knows that colour is one of her greatest influences. That’s why each chapter is dedicated to a specific colour, beginning with orange – the main colour of the boxes that house her coveted shoes – and how the colour inspires her work.
3. It’s Jam-Packed with Photos
Burch has filled the book with captivating images of other things that influence and inspire her, like stories, places, and things. Of course, her collections make appearances too. Prints are also among her greatest influences and also make appearances. So, to call it visually stimulating is a bit of an understatement.
4. It’s Personal
If you ever wanted to know Burch better, now’s your chance. The book offers glimpses into everything from how she entertains, to her style icons, to family trips with her boys. Not to mention how her parents have influenced her collection, company, and philosophy.
5. It’s Educational
Burch includes the work of her favourite artists, authors, and interior designers along with the seasoned advice of business leaders – many of whom are interviewed within its pages.
6. It Supports a Notable Cause
One hundred per cent of the gross proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit the Tory Burch Foundation, an organization that supports the economic empowerment of women entrepreneurs and their families through access to affordable loans, entrepreneurial education, networking programs and mentoring support.
