Q: What was the inspiration behind the Fall Essentials Handbag Collection?
A: The bag collection, just like the entire Trina Turk brand, is inspired by California’s vibrant multicultural mix, architecture, and landscape. We are also inspired by California’s outdoor poolside vibe so all of our bags are named after cocktails. Our fall collection has both ‘essentials’ which are the bags you’ll use everyday, and the ‘luxe’ which are the clutches and styles you would be more likely to carry out or when you don’t need a larger bag.

Q: What is a “Must Have” item in your handbag?

Q: Can you describe the Trina Turk style in three words or less?

Q: What’s your guilty luxurious indulgence?
