The creative director for Banana Republic, Simon Kneen talked about the motivation behind this brilliant collaboration saying that, “I find myself continually inspired by the cool, modern vibe of southern California and I wanted to bring that spirit to Banana Republic’s summer collection. Trina was a natural partner for this capsule. Her signature prints embody the Palm Springs lifestyle.”
Trina used Palm Springs as inspiration for bringing her vibrant and colorful perspective to the capsule collection. “I decided early on that the Palm Springs ‘cocktails by the pool’ lifestyle would be our key inspiration for the colors, styles, and prints”, she stated.
The Trina Turk for Banana Republic Summer 2012 collection features 60 feminine, colorful garments, ranging from lovely dresses and sexy shorts to colorful swimsuits and stylish tops. Just what we all need for the holiday season!
