Trina Turk residential

I stopped into the new Trina Turk residential boutique in Palm Springs (right next to the to the original clothing store) last week on our way to The Parker. My first reaction was feeling underwhelmed. The store looked great, but there wasn't really anything there that was new or different than hundreds of other stores in the country. I'm torn because in terms of fashion Trina Turk was one of the first to bring back the resort looks of the late 60s and early 70s, but they seemed to come into the home store scene a little late. Their own fabrics used for pillows and seat cushions also looked like they were made with polyesther or something even cheaper—which the prices weren't. That said, they had some cool little antiques, like ashtrays and tumblers, that were one-of-a-kind. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Palm Springs, but don't get too excited. 895 N. Palm Canyon Drive Palm Springs, CA.
