Style Card: Trina Turk

Trina Turk

Today, you’ll find an exclusive interview with Trina Turk.  It was wonderful to catch up with the designer and learn more about some of her favorite fall trends, what she’ll be wearing through the holidays, some of the best advice she’s ever received, and more.


S&S: What are your favorite trends for fall? Specifically, for Texas?

TT: My favorite fall trends are strong color and amazing coats. There’s a lot of gorgeous, vibrant color for fall: orchid, blue iris and dill. We are having a good time working with all those colors and our Texas client tends to respond well to color and print!


S&S: What will you be wearing this fall season?

TT: The changing seasons are always fun and bring an automatic tweak to your wardrobe. I like the crispness in the air as holiday approaches, which means I get to wear jackets and coats again. This holiday I’m excited to mix prints, patterns and textures and layer pattern on pattern. I’m also looking forward to wearing plaid!


S&S: What can we expect to see from the Trina Turk holiday collection?

TT: Pops of color and print (of course!), contemporary contrasts, graphic patterns, metallics, painterly florals, and plaid. Plus, this year we’ve introduced a gift giving collection for the first time. Items range from desk diaries and journals to jewelry, coasters and pajama sets to our Kokomo cosmetic bags - all perfect gifts for friends, family or hostesses at Holiday soirees!


S&S: What are your favorite ways to take your attire from day to night?

TT: It’s all about jewelry. You could be wearing a simple dress that is totally work-appropriate, and then if you just change your shoe and pile on a bunch of jewelry, it’s going to work in the evening.


S&S: What’s coming for spring 2015 from Trina Turk?

TT: For Spring 2015, a trip to the downtown Los Angeles Flower Mart inspired a profusion of print! Vibrant buds and tropical takes on foliage bloom with graphic stripes and geometric jacquards. The one-piece will continue to be key in rompers and jumpsuits, and maxi patio dresses. Spring will be all about garden fresh looks.


S&S: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

TT: Don’t take yourself too seriously.


S&S: Who are your own personal style inspirations?

TT: My style icons are Iris Apfel, Millicent Rogers, Audrey Hepburn, Mary Tyler Moore in the 70’s, Jackie O, Diana Vreeland, and Peggy Moffatt.

S&S: Where are your favorite places in the world to travel?

TT: Somewhere I haven’t been before!


S&S: What are you currently reading? What’s on your bedside table?

TT: Dwell, Elle Decor, Vogue and Bazaar.


We hope you’ll stop by Trina’s Highland Park Village boutique to shop some of her top picks in person!
