Just in case you haven’t had enough of designer collaborations, Marni for H&M, Jason Wu for Target, or Missoni for Target, another collaboration is catapulting your way. Trina Turk is creating a capsule collection for Banana Republic, set to launch in June 2012. The collection is inspired by Californian modern and fresh vibe and will consists of 60 easy, breezy, and patterned pieces.
“I find myself continually inspired by the cool, modern vibe of southern California and I wanted to bring that spirit to Banana Republic’s summer collection,” says Simon Kneen, Creative Director. “Trina’s signature prints are beloved and embody the aspirational Palm Springs lifestyle, so she was a natural partner for Banana Republic’s capsule collection this Summer.”
“When we began working together on the collaboration, Simon and I decided early on that the Palm Springs ‘cocktails by the pool’ lifestyle would be our key inspiration for the colors, styles, and prints,” says Turk. “I’m excited to offer this collection of colorful, covetable and unique pieces to Banana Republic customers for summer 2012.”
We have not seen sketches or Trina Turk for Banana Republic lookbook yet, but we are eagerly awaiting to see what this collaboration will bring. We are also curious about what Banana Republic’s classy line will look like colored-in with patterns.
Here are a few pieces that will give you an idea of Trina Turk’s lively designs. They are also super appropriate if you plan going to a resort.
