Galleria will get Tory Burch’s dresses. But Mall of America will be the place to shop for Tory’s color blocked track suits. With the Twin Cities’ first Tory Burch store still under construction at Galleria, the upscale preppy lifestyle brand has already embarked on a second project in town: a Tory Sport store at Mall of America. It, too, is scheduled to open this fall—between Kate Spade and Kit and Ace on the first floor, south side, which is home to more than half a dozen active lifestyle brands including luluelmon, Athleta, Fabletics, and Calvin Klein Performance.
Tory Sport entered the crowded field of performance and active inspired apparel last year to rave reviews. True to Tory, the line is ‘70s inspired and country club chic. But classic styles, including flared track pants and polos, are re-imagined in high performance fabrics with practical details like compression panels and quick dry material. Expect to pay anywhere from $45 to $90 for a top and around $120 for pants. Even at the gym, Tory Burch is all about aspiration.
