Ready to inject some fun into your summer wardrobe and beachwear alternatives? Then you'll definitely appreciate the creative, affordable options from the Trina Turk for Banana Republic summer 2012 capsule collection.

Putting together the best defining characteristics of talented fashion industry representatives has proven time and time again one of the best recipe for gorgeous pieces that are proudly worn by regular customers and new fans alike. The newest collaboration that inevitably draws our attention is the one between Banana Republic and celebrity favorite designer Trina Turk.

Banana Republic creative director Simon Kneen explained the motivation behind this clever collaboration: "I find myself continually inspired by the cool, modern vibe of southern California and I wanted to bring that spirit to Banana Republic’s summer collection. Trina was a natural partner for this capsule. Her signature prints embody the Palm Springs lifestyle." Trina brought her colorful, vibrant perspective into the capsule collection using Palm Springs as inspiration: “I decided early on that the Palm Springs ‘cocktails by the pool’ lifestyle would be our key inspiration for the colors, styles, and prints”, she stated.  

The collection consists of 60 feminine, colorful pieces that range from flirty dresses to sassy, cheerful swimsuits which inevitably make us daydream about the perfect seasonal holiday. The designer confesses that she uses a uniform consisting of "a lightweight kaftan tunic, a wide brim hat, and sunglasses" and now she gives us the opportunity to sport a similarly relaxed beach-friendly style.
