TRINA TURK AND GRACE BAY CLUB ANNOUNCE EXCLUSIVE
TRINA TURKS & CAICOS COLLECTION
California-based Fashion Designer and World-Renowned Caribbean Resort
Launch Limited Edition Print and Capsule Collection for Resort 2012
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos (October 11, 2011) – Grace Bay Club, one of the Caribbean’s premier resorts, and Trina Turk, the quintessential Southern California designer, have partnered to launch a limited edition capsule collection in a bright, new print conceived and created exclusively for the resort. Known for her bold use of color and chic designs, the exclusive print was inspired by the resort’s sophisticated aesthetic and playful beach lifestyle. Trina Turks & Caicos marks the first designer collaboration for Grace Bay Club, and the first time Trina has created a limited edition, signature print and capsule collection for a resort. The eponymous collection will be available at the Boutique at Grace Bay Club, Trina Turk namesake retail boutiques and online at TrinaTurk.com starting in mid-December 2011.
“I was thrilled when Grace Bay Club tapped me to design an exclusive print for the resort” says Trina Turk, CEO, Trina Turk. “I drew inspiration from Turks’ translucent blue waters, white sand beaches and the terracotta Mediterranean-style architecture, and the result is a captivatingprint that embodies the brilliant color palette and unmistakable optimism found in both the Caribbean and California beach locales.”
“Trina Turk embodies all that is fun and energetic about the California lifestyle, and we wanted to bring a piece of that to the Caribbean,” says Nikheel Advani, COO and Principal, Grace Bay Resorts. “Her effortless, sophisticated style complements Grace Bay Club’s ideology, making her the perfect partner for this project.”
With prices ranging from $76.00 - $204.00, the seven piece capsule collection features mix-and-match bikini separates, including halter and bandeau styles, and a wrap one-piece swimsuit, as well as a kimono-sleeve tunic and ankle-length maxi dress. The print blends vibrant shades of coral and turquoise that complement both the California and Caribbean style sense, and evokes the tropical color ways found on the resort’s famous 13-mile Grace Bay beach. All swimwear styles in the collection also showcase the Trina Turk brand’s iconic block hardware in gold and white.
The wrap one-piece swimsuit is well-suited to the style-setter who prefers a modern look, while the bandeau and halter tops are swimwear staples that can be mixed and matched with tie-side or hipster bikini bottoms. The versatile tunic dress is equally appealing as a swim cover-up on the beach or a night on the town, while the figure-flattering maxi dress looks best when dressed up for poolside cocktails.
