The Times Critical Shopper column is up a day early this week. That's good news, because this time around Cintra Wilson decides to visit recent CFDA-award-winner Tory Burch's Elizabeth Street boutique, which she pretty much slams. Wilson's conclusion is the best part of the piece: "Say what you will about polygamist wives, but at least they know they are dressing to please the patriarchy. Tory Burch clothing inhabits a privileged, prim, wifey and deodorized look that culturally symbolizes a state of voluntary submission to the males of her tribe. But, hey, there’s nothing wrong with that, if that’s who you are." [NY Times]
