The Trina Turk spring/summer 2016 collection has already been unveiled with its enduring optimistic touches and a feature to naturally boost the mood. The motto of the designer – Tina Turk not to take oneself too seriously and have fun with fashion is reflected in every single collection of the lifestyle brand. As she herself has repeatedly stated her inspiration is coming from Californian landscapes and architecture. Accordingly we could predict from the very beginning that the Trina Turk spring 2016 collection is also Californian-inspired, but this time we have obviously failed in our predictions since this year the designer has visited Capri for several times and got obsessed with the Mediterranean atmosphere.
Going deep into the collection we can notice that in every single piece we are catching crystal aqua water splashes, turbulent waves, the endless lucid sky, the hot sun rays, some cold dizzy cocktails, exotic plants and just relaxing spirit. The collection introduces apparel for wearing both on the beach and in the city and not only. There are also some pieces available that can be consistent with upbeat cocktail parties. The color spectrum is as always bright, vibrant, and chock-full with warm and glowing colors, which is actually emblematic of positive Trina Turk.
It is evident that Trina Turk returned from Capri fully energized and animated to convert the marine atmosphere into diverse prints and patterns on impeccable fabrics and even to bring forth innovational solutions like spaghetti-strap scarf-like dresses. There are plenty of casual rompers in the collection, some of them having some classic touches that call for matching clutches. One of the rompers is evidently inspired from iconic striped umbrellas on Saint-Tropez’s beach; another one is carrying over the combination of sky and sea. Flaring pants and jumpsuits included in the collection are entirely covered with various exotic flowers brought from an island in the Mediterranean.
The signature pieces of collection come to be scarf-like oversized dresses with flaring hems some of them being short cut, others – floor length. What unites the tulle dresses is the illusion to carry a massive field full of colorful flowers. Tina Turk is especially enthusiastic about her innovational caftan dress with spaghetti straps and her enthusiasm is surely to become infectious among a series of fashion hunters next year. The beach theme couldn’t but generate a couple of swimwear, knitted and crocheted cover-ups and wide brim hats.
However Trina Turk could not limit herself with only the Mediterranean Sea. Due to her being so curious and trying to get inspiration from anything possible, Trina Turk has found contemporary illustrator Lisa Congdom on Instagram and got inspired by her works to create one print in her collection. Additionally, looking back at the early ‘60s and ‘70s, let us refresh our memories to visualize the clothing pieces embellished with floral patterns: Trina Turk has evidently traveled not only to Capri for several times this year but also back to the sixties and seventies so as to bring those eras into being her spring/summer 2016 fashion line.
