Hues of Trina Turk

She's got legs! And knows how to use 'em...

Trina Turk is the latest designer chosen to partake in Hue hosiery's Guest Designer Program. Collaborating with Hue, the contemporary designer - known for her flair with color - has created a capsule collection that will be featured in her runway during New York Fashion Week in September and sold in stores including Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdales.

The collection plays off her "Miami Vice" RTW collection, featuring neon sheer washes in pink, aqua and yellow and geometric prints like diags and stripes. “It was an interesting process,” said Turk. “I’ve never done hosiery before, so the possibilities are vast. But it was a great back-and-forth, and it was similar to developing any product.”
Turk joins past participants Tibi and Tracy Reese (pre-req that the designer's name begins with a "T"?). Hue by Trina Turk will bow at her spring show during New York Fashion Week next month and will retail for $28.
