Banana Republic has partnered with designer Trina Turk to produce a collection in time for summer that is inspired by the southern California lifestyle. The nearly 60-piece collection of women’s apparel and accessories feature summer essentials in iconic Trina Turk prints. The collection includes flirty dresses, printed swimwear, plush beach towels, breezy tops and crisp clean bottoms. Prices on apparel range from $49.50 for shorts to $150 for a printed dress. Jewelry and Accessory pieces are $34.50 for a bracelet to $120 for the pinking tote. Swim separates are $58 for a bikini bottom to $68 for a bikini top. Lifestyle items range from $34.50 for a make-up case to $59.50 for a beach towel.
“When we began working together on the collaboration, Simon and I decided early on that the Palm Springs ‘cocktails by the pool’ lifestyle would be our key inspiration for the colors, styles, and prints” says Turk. “I’m excited to offer this collection of colorful, covetable and unique pieces to Banana Republic customers for summer 2012.”
My personal fave pieces are the printed one shoulder dress, the yellow paisley strapless sheath and the zig zag striped pencil skirt. The printed shorts are also pretty great and perfect making a statement with minimal effort this summer.
The collection be available on June 7, 2012 and will be carried in all Banana Republic stores in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Japan, Turkey, and Korea as well as online in 24 countries through www.bananarepublic.com, www.bananarepublic.ca, and www.bananarepublic.eu.
