California dreaming

The temperatures still aren’t balmy in New England, but fashion retailers (and fashion mags) are thinking spring. And nothing says summer like California. For the spring 2014 collections for Troma Tirk and Mr. Turk, press materials say women’s and men’s lines were inspired by the scenic route up the Pacific Coast Highway,  ‘through laid back coastal towns and past secret surf spots, sunbleached color and pattern divervisty prevail.’ The line emphasized ‘graphic accents of black and bright touches of dill, grapefruit, and cherry (that) highlight essential Prisma, Grid, and Pop Art Floral prints.’ The spring lines of Trina Turk and Mr. Turk were unveiled in a presentation at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York last September.
