The combo of light silk fabrics, high necklines, and drop-waists gives a handful of Tory Burch's Fall 2013 dresses a Lady Mary circa her wedding feel. The designer, however, cited René Lalique, the glassware artist known for his fine jewelry in the '20s, and Gustav Klimt, who's painting "The Kiss" adds that extra arty something to many a dorm room wall, as inspirations. Those two artists translate directly through the color palette, first with a few gold looks, then with the light blue details on navy, and then the deep purple with crimson patterns. Also through insect jewelry and crafty looking embroidery, respectively. Take a look at all things artsy and '20s after the jump. Lady Mary would be so proud.
