For spring 2015, designer Tory Burch looked to the life and style of French painter Francoise Gilot, a former lover and muse of Pablo Picasso and the mother of his children, Claude Picasso and Paloma Picasso. Burch told Style.com she referenced Gilot for inspiration “because she was a strong woman and a great artist.” Influences were found in the Toile de Jouy pattern that depicted the cypress around their villa in Villauris. You can see the rustic refinement captured in the iconic photograph of Francoise Gilot and Pablo Picasso by Robert Capa on the beach at Golfe-Juan in 1948. “The rawness of the collection was its charm,” wrote Tim Blanks. In truth, it’s hard to choose a favorite look. View the spring 2015 collection here.
