Trina Turk gives her quintessential California Style its own home in Miami and talks about the inspiration behind her new Summer 2016 collaboration with Disney.
Known for her bold and colorful signature prints, and bohemian California style, designer Trina Turk has made her mark on almost every area of design. With a women’s ready-to-wear line, accessories, swimwear, recreation, a Mr. Turk menswear line, residential décor and textiles, handbag and jewelry collections. This Summer the designer will make her mark on South Florida with the opening of a 4500 square foot Trina Turk and Mr. Turk boutique in Miami’s MiMo District. “Miami embraces color and so do we. We are especially excited to introduce the Miami customer to the full breadth of our brand including an expanded assortment of Mr. Turk menswear and swimwear appealing to both locals and visitors,” says Turk.
The 7200 Biscayne Blvd location will be one of the first major fashion retailers in the up-and-coming MiMo District. “This neighborhood has a similar vibe to the once quiet stretch of Palm Canyon Drive where we opened our flagship boutique in Palm Springs, CA,” said Turk. “The establishment of our store there sparked a revitalization of the surrounding area, with new retail businesses opening around us. We look forward to the same occurring in the Mimo district, where the renewal is well under way with great restaurants and the Vagabond Hotel nearby. We love the midcentury architecture in Mimo and are excited to introduce Trina Turk and Mr Turk to the area.”
This season the designer celebrates yet another first; as she teams up with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media for their first designer beachwear collaboration based on the world of Disney-Pixar. Inspired by the animated feature “The Finding Dory collection from Trina Turk celebrates the much-loved characters from the movie through unique designs offering the perfect blend of fun and fashion.” Said Josh Silverman, executive vice president, global licensing, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. The collection will include apparel for woman and girls, swimwear for the whole family, as well as handbags and accessories.
“Our brand’s Southern California vibe was a perfect fit with Disney Pixar’s Finding Dory,” said Trina Turk. “The inspiration for the print came from the film’s background art, with Dory and Nemo swimming through bright multicolored seaweed, coral and anemones against an aqua background. These cheerful surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for Dory and her friends in this exclusive print.” Prices range from $48 to $228.
Visitors and locals can look forward to accessing this and all offerings from the Trina Turk brand later this summer. Visit TrinaTurk.com.
