Aside from the phenomenon that has become her Reva ballet flats, Tory Burch is perhaps best known for her bright and fun prints and, more often than not, I'm completely in love with them (particularly her '60s-inspired prints and her ikats). For summer though, the divine Ms. Burch has come out with a red elephant print bikini and coordinating tote and towel and I'm thinking this is a big "miss" for Tory. Is it just me or is Tory trying to make a not-too-subtle political statement? In light of her associations with the country club set, she may just be trying to market to her audience. Political affiliations aside though, do you think this is cute -- or fug?
Cute or no, I can say with certainty that I'd be more concerned about snide comments from fellow beach-goers regarding my elephantine appearance in said bikini than someone confusing me for a Sarah Palin supporter.
But I'd like to hear your thoughts on this one.
