Trina Turk’s five vignettes’ presentation of men’s (Mr. Turk) and women’s (mostly) separates started the official first day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week NY--- and got us in the mood for some wardrobe additions NOW.

Cocktails by a Palm Spring’s patio has been a fashiony inspiration of collections since the 60’s--- with iconic images of society’s swankest captured at the moment--- serving as jump off points for entire wardrobes…(see Douglas Hannant Resort  for example).

Trina Turk’s collections live that life 365, 24-7…and for her 15th anniversary gave NYers a taste for the good life.

Bright prints (Laguna plaid, Avocado Tiger Leaf), bright colors (Key Lime, Hot Pink…), and a light dab of the retro added up to a lot of charm…

The Backgammon Challenge

PLUS; Assorted beach lifestyle accessories…like handbags, printed towels, colorful fabrics for in/outdoors for textile giant Schumacher, tabletop items.
Pool Deck featuring Trina Turk Printed Beach Towels, Cushion and Umbrella Fabric

There wasn’t an item of clothing anywhere that didn’t fit the MO…


More mode was some jersey pieces…a Fatigue/Ivory Stripe Dolman Sweater, Stone pants and TT’s Koi necklace and Swag Ring.

Most Likely To Be Worn By A First Lady: This terrific yellow Citrus dress.
