Stepping Out: Trina Turk Debuts a Cali-Inspired Shoe Collection

When ready-to-wear designer Trina Turk named the 12 styles of her first footwear line, she looked to her favorite towns in California

“Pasadena” has a wooden platform. “Beverly,” a bejeweled thong. And “Palm Springs”? A heel made of Lucite, of course. When ready-to-wear designer Trina Turk named the 12 styles of her first footwear line, she looked to her favorite towns in California. After all, she’s a native. “I’m evoking the attitude and feel of these cities,” says Turk. “The brand is inspired by and represents the modern California lifestyle: optimistic, progressive, and effortless.” » Trina Turk, 8008 W. 3rd St., Beverly Grove.
