Twice I have stopped hard in my tracks – leaving me now in utter awe and anticipation of Trina Turk’s collection for Fall 2013.
It started with this Instagram photo from Trina herself during NYFW. Bold yet simple. Classic yet modern. I don’t think the color-blocking in rich, warm tones could be more perfectly arranged. Creating a beautiful print is a skill; creating a beautiful print that a person can wear and look this stunning is an art. Granted this is something that Trina Turk is known for in her resort wear and so not a new phenomenon, but it has not caught my eye until now.
And then this image shows up in my feed and punches me in the gut. Of course the woman is beautiful as the canvas – but between the burgundy hat, color-chunking on the sweater and carefully selected statement accessories, nothing “matches” per se yet everything goes perfectly together. It’s what I try to emulate on my best days and frankly it’s just done damn well here. I find out her new collection is called “California Modern” – yes, I can get on board with that. It sounds refreshing.
