HANGIN’ WITH HUE: Contemporary designer Trina Turk is the latest partner in Hue’s Guest Designer Program, where the Kayser-Roth-owned legwear brand collaborates with apparel designers on capsule legwear collections to showcase on their runways and sell in stores. Previous collaborators have included Tracy Reese and Tibi.
“Trina Turk and Hue are perfect partners,” said Julia Townsend, executive vice president and general manager of Kayser-Roth Corp. “We’re both known for print and color, and her work is modern and energetic. It’s fun to develop a legwear collection meant to go on the runway of a designer with a vision.”
Taken from the “Miami Vice” theme of Turk’s ready-to-wear collection, the Hue by Trina Turk spring line ranges from neon sheer washes in turquoise, magenta and yellow to geometric prints in diagonal mazes and stripes. She will unveil the pieces at her spring show during New York Fashion Week next month.
“It was an interesting process,” Turk said. “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.”
The Hue by Trina Turk spring collection will retail for $28 at retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s.
