Trina Turk NYFW Spring 15


Trina Turk NYFW Spring 15

LA’s downtown Flower Market was the inspiration behind the collaborative Trina Turk & Mr. Turk show this season.  Vibrant floral prints, graphic stripes and geometric jacquard danced across easy chic silhouettes.

What made the show completely unique and well, darn right fun was the decision to allow the models to keep their phones while they stood on in front of the crowd.  Trina and Jonathan discussed how they “decided not to fight it”.  They embraced the fact that we’re all completely attached to our phones and encouraged the models and show goers to take sefies together and to Instagram the experience.  The whole experience was light and fun.  It gave the crowd the opportunity to interact with the show and the clothes in a whole new way.  Well done Trina and Jonathan, well done.

Key pieces for women: White Leno Sweater with surfboard print shorts, Photo Anemone print embellished fit and flare dress, Sunset maxi sweater dress, Pom-pom hoodie, Lantana Lace Florencia one-piece.

Key pieces for men: Franklin Hills Jacquard Plaid suit, Tropical Tiger print Thurston blazer, Zig Zag Cube print Safari board short.

Key Accessories: Dingle ball crusher hat for women, Cream and black raffia clutch, Layered beaded necklaces in pop colors, Trina Turk iphone cases and awesome nail art!

A fun little note about the show, one of my favorite fashion illustrators, Blair Breitenstein, was at the show sketching the models (see 3rd to last image).  You absolutely must check out her portfolio and shop online, it’s gorgeous and to boot she was super sweet and personable.

Trina Turk NYFW Spring 15

NYFW- Carmen Marc Valvo & Trina Turk

DESIGNER: Carmen Marc Valvo

Carmen Marc Valvo presented a collection inspired by the Ottoman Empire and a recent trip to Turkey. The show was filled with female warrior vibes presented through chain mail details, brocade, lace and beaded breast plates. The show had just the right amount of edge yet still filled the runway with red carpet worthy gowns. The fur pieces were a great addition adding texture and volume to the show. I especially loved the hair and thought it perfectly meshed with the female warrior look Valvo was exuding.

DESIGNER: Trina Turk & Mr. Turk

Trina Turk and Mr. Turk are known for bringing cool Palm Springs quirk to the world. Their use of print mix is so perfectly over the top you wish you’d thought of it yourself. I absolutely fell in love with the chunky knits and the way they were styled with popping prints and collard shirts. Trina’s sensibility when it comes to outerwear is right up my alley. Its chic, its fun, sometimes there’s fur involved and I most definitely want to own it all. Last but not least the matching his and hers green and block floral embossed tuxedos are TO DIE FOR! Paired with the fun new bags and shows Trina is launching, it makes the perfect statement!

New York Fashion Week Recap Part 1

The tents are no more and the leaves have begun to fall, but NYFW is still fresh in all of our minds. Running from show to show you could hear the chatter about everyones favorite trends. Here are a few of my favorite trends/looks from NYFW. What are your favorites? What will you be rocking Spring/Summer 2014?

Cropped Tops– Cropped tops were one of the major trends this season. Everything from boxy, to fitted and flouncy. Check out some of my favorite variations!

Trina Turk presentation- love the boxy silhouette and pop color.

Christian Siriano Runway- Absolutely in love with Christian’s color palette. Especially this yellow

cropped top with flowing high low statement overlay. Such movement and color, a serious must have!

Christian Siriano Runway- This cropped boxy jacket has everything, circle cut swingy sleeves, and just the right geometric print.

Deivie Presentation- Laser cut, pop color, script cropped top, YES PLEASE! The perfect little tee!

Jill Stuart- Super cropped with the perfect little flounce.

Chiffon– This beautiful fabric was seen floating under tunic layered ensembles and dancing down the runway. Here are a few of my favorite.

Tanya Taylor Runway- The prints and color at Tanya Taylor just put you in a happy place.

I loved the simple silhouette here, which was perfectly paired with this very Seurat inspired print and statement jewels.

Trina Turk Presentation- We saw this severely scooped neckline on a number of runways this season.

What I love about this perfect sheath is the simplicity and the fabulous line of color bone. Additionally,

love the use of chiffon in the see though cinched pants, so summer and chic.

Trina Turk Presentation- What more are you looking for in a chic beach coverup?

Ethereal, amazing print and color, need I say more?

Jen Kao- The Jen Kao show was one of the most beautiful I experienced this season.

This flowing, layered, perfection was just a little slice of heaven from the show

that made you feel like you might just be there.

Steven Khalil Runway (in conjunction with Fashion Palette)- Beaded, craping necklines and

just the right amount of skin. Steven Khalil nailed it for the perfect evening statement.
