Tory Burch has long been known for stylish, functional wear that has a signature look. Classic, crisp, tailored, but also worldly, curious prints. Now, she has taken her love for sport and the outdoors into her activewear collection, Tory Sport, which debuted at this year’s NY Fashion Week. Each piece is beautifully made, and more than that, each fits a woman’s body beautifully, something we are all looking for from our activewear. The most standout feature is that Tory Sport really offers an outfit perfect for every sport, as you can see here.

All Weather Run Jacket — The seam-sealed All-Weather Run Jacket evokes vintage varsity style. The waterproof fabric shields you from the wind and rain, and the hood folds to zip into the collar, while the front and back vents promote air circulation.
A vintage tunic from a Paris flea market. Interior designer David Hicks' graphic style. American sportswear. A television commercial encouraging you to be bold and follow your dreams. The Tory Burch story could begin at any number of starting points. But delve deep and it really all goes back to her parents, Buddy and Reva Robinson, and a childhood in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.
There, on the outskirts of Philadelphia, Tory grew up a tomboy, climbing trees and playing in the backyard with her three brothers. Her parents were consummate entertainers, serving lunches on the poolside porch, all fretwork and white lattice, and always with fresh flowers on the table. Then there were their travels — Marrakech, Athens, Capri… Photos of Buddy and Reva in the Sixties and Seventies would prove endlessly inspiring, he in his loafers and Hermès scarf-lined jackets and she, channeling bohemian glamour in her long caftans.
By the time Tory launched with a small boutique in Nolita in 2004 — after graduating with a degree in art history and working for designers Ralph Lauren, Vera Wang and Narciso Rodriguez at Loewe — her exacting eye for that era was set. And now it was coupled with the energy and spirit of New York to create a design vision that was uniquely hers, one that resonated worldwide from a hit ballet flat and tunics inspired by that flea-market find to the stores themselves, with her vibrant interiors.
Tory Sport is a modern play on iconic Seventies activewear. Classic styles are reimagined in high-performance fabric, fresh colors, and graphic prints.
