Forget traditional; Trina Turk is all about a revolutionary “runway” for showing off her sophisticated Spring 2011 line. The collection, appropriately titled Palm Springs Eternal, was inspired by a Palm Springs throwback magazine with a 70s style resort lounge vibe. Models interacting in small vignettes like a chic movie set, each outfit and decor piece purposefully placed to create an overall cohesive image. “We wanted to showcase the lifestyle of the brand,” Trina Turk explained to me when I was able to steal a moment of her time to chat while we sipped the tropical tea at the event, “we’ve added home decor to our repertoire and decided this was the best way to bring the two together for a unique show”. The venture was successful, with hot young male and female models, dressed in the signature bright uptown prints, playing backgammon, sunbathing, and snapping shots of the guests on vintage Polaroid cameras (it was the first time I have been to a show where the models took pictures of me!). I was pleasantly surprised with how well the home line fit with the collection. This brand has so much for us to look forward to, I can’t help but think to myself, IS IT SPRING YET?!!
