Tory Burch and Anna Wintour

It might have been brisk outside but the bright colors inside Salon 94, a resplendent townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, made it feel like you were stepping back into summer. It was a fitting setting for the launch of Tory Burchs first book, In Color. The designer, dressed in an oxblood dress by Dolce & Gabbana, accented with lace trim and a touch of sparkle from David Webb, cohosted the evening with online auction house Paddle8, who provided a spectrum of artwork ranging from a Damien Hirst rug that provided the inspiration for Burch’s book cover to a mirror featuring a basketball hoop chandelier. Sprinkled throughout the room were Lauren Santo Domingo, Tabitha Simmons, and Marina Rust Connor all in variations on autumnal hues which had us wondering what color guests thought best represented them. “I guess orange,” said Burch, “it’s just a happy color, and I always wanted an orange bedroom. I never got it though.” Artist Dustin Yellin who made his fashion week catwalk debut at Misha Nonoo’s spring show joked, “I’m a changing rainbow.” However others like Zani Gugelmann in a black Ralph Lauren dress pointed to their accessories, “Note the red shoes—they have pop.”
