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.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
