Tory Burch’s Southampton Home

In an impressively short time, Tory Burch has created a multimillion-dollar lifestyle brand based on . . . herself. Raised in an historic Georgian house on rolling acres in Pennsylvania, she was a tomboyish kid more likely to be found up a tree than in a dress. Still, she soaked up plenty of style from her parents, who were among the Main Line gentry: Her father, heir to a paper-cup fortune, designed his own clothes and lined his suit jackets with Hermès scarves; her mother favored the easy patrician chic of Jacqueline Onassis. Burch credits her family as a primary influence on her taste, along with the decorator David Hicks, whose color-charged graphics from the sixties and seventies still look “very fresh” to her today. - Via VOGUE FOR MORE OF TORY'S LIFE STORY
