LA-based designer Trina Turk has teamed up with Banana Republic this summer for a limited-edition capsule collection featuring 60 summer essentials in five iconic Trina Turk prints— tunics and sateen shorts (around $50 each) , maxi dresses ($150), swimwear (bikini bottoms $58 and bikini tops $68 ) and accessories ($35-$60).
Inspiration for the line was —of course—“Palm Springs cocktails by the pool,” says Turk whose brand has helped defined modern desert chic. Banana Republic Creative Director Simon Kneen says, “Trina’s signature prints are beloved and embody the aspirational Palm Springs lifestyle. She was a natural partner for Banana Republic.”
The collection will be available for purchase in all Banana Republic stores as well as online through www.bananarepublic.com as of June 2012.
