Quick Look at Tory Burch
Launched in 2004, Tory Burch began as an American luxury brand known for its beautiful, timeless pieces and rich storytelling that evokes optimism and joy. The original logo was a graphic design element of a classic serif T and its mirror image encased in a circle, which is said to be inspired by the geometry of Moroccan architecture and interiors made by David Hicks.
Years passed, and the company grew into a global brand with boutiques around the world, including that in Singapore, and continues to sprout, spreading its mission to empower women through its classic and timeless collection of ready-to-wear, handbags, footwear, accessories, jewelry, and home and beauty.
