BEHIND THE DESIGNS: TRINA TURK AND MR. TURK RETURN TO CHARLOTTE
“We’re thrilled to introduce an excellent selection of Trina Turk and Mr Turk to friends of the brand, and newcomers alike. We’ve been treated to Charlotte’s southern hospitality, and we look forward to reciprocating at our new boutique.” -Trina Turk
We have been devoted fans of Trina Turk long before her visit to Charlotte in 2012 as our guest of honor for the Mint Museum Auxiliary’s Fall EnrichMint Forum. Ever since that visit where Trina and her husband Jonathan Skow (aka Mr. Turk) charmed everyone with their fashions and passion for architecture and and design, we have hoped they would open a boutique here in the Queen City. To our delight, that wish is coming true this summer and we have the pleasure of collaborating with them to design their new boutique. See below for the inspiration behind the design….and come visit the boutique opening August 1st at Southpark.
Inspired by Trina Turk’s and Mr. Turk’s signature use of bold and vibrant colors, the Charlotte Boutique will reflect this aesthetic through color blocking, pattern play and photography. The images will include vintage photographs and past images from ad campaigns ranging from Los Angeles and Palm Springs to Capri and Miami that capture the optimistic and dynamic outlook of the Trina Turk and Mr. Turk brands. The color palette is taken from colors prevalent in many Trina Turk and Mr. Turk prints as well as images from the factory, Trina and Jonathan’s travels and past ad campaigns. A selection of furnishings from the Trina Turk inventory will be repurposed alongside new pieces to create seating and display areas in the Boutique.
