Tory Burch has become the latest big international name to endorse Riyadh’s Mode Al Faisaliah Mall as a luxury shopping centre. The new store is yet another expansion of the American brand’s footprint in Saudi Arabia. Complementing other Tory Burch boutiques in the capital, as well as those in Jeddah and Al Khobar, this is the 24th location in the Middle East for the brand known for its bohemian-preppy aesthetic since launching in Dubai in 2011.
A wide assortment of the Tory Burch collection, including ready-to-wear, shoes, handbags and accessories, is available at the boutique, which has a façade that is distinguished by a green awning and orange lacquer doors. As well as the signature Tory Burch design details, the interior has an inviting, residential feel, just like all the label’s retail locations. Oak panel walls, cane tables and aged brass étagères offer a neutral backdrop for a refined mix of furnishings. These include a blue bamboo-pattern wall covering, mocha-striped drapes and couches inspired by ones in Tory’s home in New York.
Representing the personal style and sensibility of its CEO and designer, Tory Burch, the eponymous lifestyle brand launched in 2004 with a small boutique in Manhattan’s Nolita neighbourhood. Over the past decade, the company has grown into a global brand with over 300 boutiques around the world. Art, music, travel, interiors and the designer’s own stylish parents are inspirations for her collections.
