When Fashion and Fiction Meet: Tory Burch’s Holiday Collection is Inspired by ‘The Little Prince’ Classic Novel



Tory Burch’s holiday collection rekindles our childlike senses with nostalgia as it takes inspiration from the classic novel, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. A fitting nod to the global designer’s favorite book, the pieces feature classic silhouettes with special details reminiscent of the literary masterpiece.

From flowy blouses to dainty shoes and accessories, each piece bears a motif from the classic French tale. Tory Burch updated the wardrobe staples with a modern twist—an easy denim dress is made more textured with a ruffled placket and black sneakers are embellished with a studded accent. The collection’s clean and minimalist approach balances well with the enchanting influences of The Little Prince.

The pieces’ silhouettes have relaxed figure and elongated proportions as seen in skirts and dresses with longer hemlines, slouchy pants, and pajama dressing.  The unstructured style gives off an easy and effortless mood. Aside from that, the sartorial pieces also sport balance a spectrum of blues—pale mist, cerulean and navy—and joyful pops of pink and gold which are heavily inspired by the book’s illustrations. Tory Burch also created a charming watercolor print aptly named “Daydream,” which showcases familiar symbols from the novel such as the fox, the pilot with his aircraft, and stars.

The collection’s footwear lineup is as stunning as the illustrations in the novel. Sharing a neutral palette of black and white, paired with shimmers of gold, and donned with star embellishments and embroidery, these designs playfully complement the mix of flats, sliders, and sneakers from the collection for an added flair.

The whimsical vibes are also prevalent in the accessories. The classic shoulder bags are finished with bold chains and star charms while the jewelries take inspiration from the celestial bodies such as the moon and stars in reference to the novel.

Playfully incorporating classic wardrobe staples with print colors and symbols from everyone’s favorite childhood book, this Tory Burch collection brings out the inner kid in us. Aside from being a great addition to any ensemble, these pieces are perfect presents in time for the holidays. Channel a piece of childlike wonder while still looking stylish with these special Tory Burch pieces.
