A brand built upon a platform of philanthropy, Elaine Turner knows how to masterfully design leather goods and accessories with a blend of fun and purpose. With a signature brand color of pink, Elaine’s luxury goods are a chic and fun representation of the modern girl who desires exceptionally designed classic products. That contemporary take on classics was certainly evident in Elaine’s current fall collection and continues to be a thread that is sown throughout her brands creative philosophy.
This season, Elaine dove into her grandmother’s greatest accessory treasures and found inspiration in designs and silhouettes that have been lost in the past. Pulling these vintage European leather goods began an inspiring journey to modernize classics with various colors, hardware and textures. Upon examining vintage luxury purses, the classic woman that once carried such a bag was translated to the current era.
This fall, the Elaine Turner girl was sent on a European journey inspired by 1940s beauty and was met with nostalgic luxury. Updated classics, like elegant heels and purses, are modernized with rich materials like croco leather, luxe snake prints and intense pops of color. Inspired by places like Stockholm, Paris and Vienna, Elaine’s fall collection features rich classics that will compliment a lady-like wardrobe in unexpected ways.
When asked what fall collection bag was her favorite, Elaine replied with the Presley bag. A truly modernized classic, the Presley bag is a fresh take on the classic purse. Featuring an accordion gusset and vintage frame, the Presley bag was updated by swapping in luxurious gold hardware and dressed in a rich cobalt blue. A personal favorite for Elaine, the bag was directly inspired by a purse her grandmother had bought during her European travels. The purse features a design that speaks of that timeless era of fashion and style. While her answer for favorite bag was pretty clear, Elaine’s choice of shoe was slighter more troubling. Offering a truly stunning collection of heels, flats and boots, one cannot blame Elaine for having trouble picking a favorite. Being a true classic girl and major fan of the style, Elaine opted for a riding boot.
A fall fashion essential, Elaine chose the Murray boot as her current favorite. A beautiful, simple interpretation of the classic riding boot, Elaine injected a dose of ET style to the design by updating the hardware and adding a subtle crossover design at the base. Whether it’s a shoe or bag, Elaine excels at listening to her customers and responding to what they want to see. A recipe of success, Elaine continues to grow with her customer and continues to deliver excellence, expertly blending trends with classics.
While many trends were evident this season, Elaine especially responded to the green trend, hunter green specifically and appreciates the fresh and fun quality of the shade. Interjecting this classic color into her own brand, Elaine did a green croco leather story with her designs and enjoyed sporting the pieces in her personal wardrobe. Another trend Elaine is thrilled for is the revival of feminine, lady-like designs, which brings style back to a timeless classicism.
From opulent bags to luxury materials, one wonders what’s up next for the classic, chic brand. A major fan of statement necklace, Elaine Turner will be launching her jewelry collection this November. Just in time for the holidays, Elaine Turner customers will be introduced to the brand’s jewelry line which features iconic touches previously seen throughout the brand. A natural progression, the line is said to be very chain heavy, offering bamboo style chains, pave Swarovski crystals and tortoise all housed in an edgy mix of gunmetal and gold. While many aspects of the line will be signature to the ET brand, Elaine plans to include stone pieces featuring rich onyx and tiger’s eye as well. While the collection will consist of more edgy, unexpected pieces, it will not completely abandon the ET philosophy. Like all pieces designed by the brand, ET jewelry will be modern classics that will remain true to the luxurious Elaine Turner aesthetic. A brand that continues to evolve classic designs into current wonders of work, many can agree that there is much to look forward to from the brand in the coming seasons.
