California born and raised designer Trina Turk mixes the laid back cool of Santa Cruz with the wealthy elegance of Pebble Beach for her Monterey Peninsula inspired Resort 2014 collection. The 17-mile Californian central coastline style is illustrated in chic ikat patterned shorts paired with cosy jaunty stripe sweaters with slouchy silhouettes and luxe fabrics being key, proving MPDClick’s SS14 sports forecast for ‘Imagine’.
Trina embraces her San Fransisco roots by drawing inspiration from cocktail parties and the poolside lifestyles of the desert, tailored two pieces evoke a vintage seventies feel while Carmel-by-the-Sea style slip dresses remain kitsch in brightly decorated florals and waist cinching accessories defining a feminine silhouette. The distinguished feminine- retro brand also looks to tomboy styles for Resort SS14 and athletic types will appreciate the navy silk basketball shorts and loose sleeved mesh swing-man jerseys in the collection.
A collection highlight was the nautical striped short and jacket two piece in a palette of navy, white and coral that celebrates the effortless élan and sunny optimism of the native Pebble Beach and Santa Cruz mindset, creating a distinct contemporary staple outfit.
