Trina Turk’s “California Modern” Fall 2013 show was so That 70s show. Anyone who watched TV in the 70’s may think she was also channeling Mary Richards with a dash of Rhoda Morgenstern from the Mary Tyler Moore show.
The presentation, styled by Kate Mossman, featured models in cool seventies threads including a plumb crepe jumpsuit with a matching skinny belt, elbow length gloves, scarf, and fedora, was stunning. Wide leg high waist trousers ran throughout the collection looking modern, chic and divinely wearable. 70′s heaven.
Everyone stopped for the “Lake,” (Hunter Green) trouser and quilted lamb bomber jacket and blouse with “Midnight,” (Navy) accent, topped with a matching colored fedora, a signature throughout the collection. Chevron prints in beautiful column dresses of satin and jersey were pure California. Merlot anyone?
A discussion of this show would not be complete without the mention of “Gauchos”, and no, you did not read that wrong! A Black Gabardine Gaucho topped by a zigzag sweater and Alpaca and Melton coat looked surprisingly fresh. Alpaca and Curly Lamb coats and vests came in a variety of colors-lake chocolate, wine, and black. These were the edgiest items in a solid collection with tons of wearable pieces.
