Where florals dominated her Fall outing, the prints here paid subtle homage to the Little Prince, via swirling celestial words and naive hand-drawn sketches. Burch also emphasized stripes. The charm of the collection was in its polished simplicity. Scroll through her Resort lineup of a year ago, and you’ll see she was emphasizing embroidery and embellishment. That sense of effusiveness has been replaced by efficiency. Which isn’t to say the collection was cold; quite the contrary—she had a chunky intarsia sweater spelling out L-O-V-E, after all. Let’s call it a winning lack of pretense, a perfect case in point being the silk cotton sundress in chambray blue. Yes, it was striped with embroidery, but with white thread, not beads, and the result was remarkably light and effortless, making it the kind of piece that women will reach for again and again.
