Inspired by artist Sonia Delaunay’s use of geometric abstraction that incorporates both strong colors and geometric shapes, the theme for Trina Turk fall 2012 runs clear throughout the collection, creating a range of pieces that work both together and alone.
Literal interpretations of Delaunay’s style can be found in Trina Turk’s approach to color-blocking, color-clashing and bold paring and use of prints. The color scheme is unapologetic and modern, but takes on an elegant and subtly sexy feel when incorporated into clean, thoughtfully cut silhouettes that makes this collection stand out for its perfect equilibrium of femininity and strength.
Over-the-top prints find balance through use of color while a more minimal approach to color and shape take form in a selection of body-hugging shift dresses. A standout piece is a dot-print dress crafted from what is both the most daring and fluid print from the collection, that features a drop-waist pleated skirt and ribbon tie at the neck. The precision fit makes creative exploration through use of fabric, color and print not only possible, but mesmerizing.
