How lucky are we that TODAY we get to see online and TONIGHT live in her Rice Village Store on University Blvd., Elaine’s newest collection for Summer 2013 destination: Seychelles and it is so exciting.
Elaine’s inspiration comes from her visit to this breathtaking island located in Africa in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar and Kenya. Known for its beauty and romanticism, these ideas dominate the collection. Summer is all about escaping to the beach, which by the way is a favorite pastime of Elaine’s and Seychelles boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Perfect for relaxing and unwinding.
Some of the quotes from Elaine were, “After the intensity of color and experience traveling through Africa, I wanted to end on an airy, ethereal note…” Two of my favorite takeaways from seeing this broad collection is her use of color and shapes that were modern but romantic. I also loved the way she combined the unpredictable in both colors and materials. Python, an always staple at Elaine Turner was lightened up here with hints of colors such as pink and mint. To add even more interest to this treatment, materials such as raffia and the emergence of cork add newness and originality to many of the pieces. You must take a look, because you are definitely in for a treat.
The following are some of the highlights of the collection….come tonight and see many more. Read the rest of this entry »
