|Trina Turk has expanded to include Mr. Turk|
Nowhere in Palm Springs is it as mid-century modern as inside Trina Turk, a store at the North end that has become a designer's showcase. The store opened in 2002, and now, if you haven't already noticed, she's got a new store--Mr. Turk. Men and women alike can now choose from a selection of garments that revisit 1960s and 70s colors and patterns.
So, just who is Trina Turk? The name has become synonymous with the Palm Springs lifestyle, refreshing swimming pools, indoor-outdoor living spaces and retro wardrobes. Her clothing line is a reconstituted mix of mid-century fabrics and patterns, a contemporary-pop mix that's popular with Hollywood celebrities like Lisa Kudrow.
Sunset, a popular Western United States magazine calls Trina Turk, "The Queen of Prints." The LA Times profiled her in June 2012, when Banana Republic picked up her lively brand. Combine that with the fact that she runs seven boutiques in the trendiest of United States cities, and you've got one busy, influential woman.
