For most, Palm Springs conjures up images of sunny days, pool side martinis, capri pants, cruising in vintage convertibles down wide open roads flanked by towering Palm Trees underneath clear blue sunny skies.

One quality about Palm Springs is it ALWAYS conjures up a certain image with people - one that is usually retro chic, mid-century architecture, Hollywood glam, and a lot of hipness.
This has not been overlooked by the tastemakers in the fashion world.
The latest fashion ingenue to enter the Palm Springs style fray is the über hip eyeglass/sunglass brand Warby Parker which sent out an email blast a while back touting their new limited edition line of glasses titled “Palm Canyon Collection”.

Trina shot into the fashion stratosphere re-introducing the Palm Springs look to new generations, who, in turn, embraced and sported the look with fervor.
Trina’s name sake shops dot Palm Canyon, and is a staple out here for clothing to home décor.
I would be what you call a regular at Trina Turk for Men - not only do I wear her clothes but I've also been decorating one of my vintage airstreams with her home decor textiles.
I do wish Warby Parker and Trina Turk had teamed up - they would've been the Palm Springs Dream Team!
