Trina Turk launches stationery, swimwear collaborations
She makes clothing, swimwear, home accessories, jewelry, handbags and bed linens. And now, Los Angeles designer Trina Turk is lending her sunny outlook to notecards and envelopes as part of a collaboration with the venerable luxury New York stationer Dempsey & Carroll, which was founded in 1878.
The East Coast-meets-West Coast designs include the Ogee (top right, in yellow or blue, $65) featuring a midcentury-ish geometric motif, and my favorite, the Coachella (top left, $60) in a multihued psychedelic print. The cards are available at DempseyandCaroll.com or TrinaTurk.com, and a portion of proceeds from the sales will benefit the nonprofit P.S. Arts.
In other news, the designer has launched the Trina Turks & Caicos collection of swim and loungewear in exclusive prints for the luxury Grace Bay Club in Turks & Caicos.
The collection is available on Turk's website, or, if you are lucky enough to be taking a Caribbean holiday sometime soon, at the resort.
