Trina Turk Capsule Collection at Banana Republic on June 7

Move over, Target -- Banana Republic is the latest destination for high-end design house capsule collections. On June 7, beach and casual-wear designer Trina Turk will be launching her 60-piece collection -- chock-full of bright colors and splashy prints -- at urban sophisticate-driven, workwear-centric retailer Banana Republic.

Trina Turk is known for her "poolside-chic" aesthetic, which includes swimwear as well as casual separates, cocktail dresses and accessories. Her designs are ultra-feminine without being precious, and Turk's point of view is decidedly upbeat and multicultural, mixing bold patterns and bright colors to achieve a fun-but-sophisticated sportswear collection.

The Trina Turk for Banana Republic Collection will feature 60 pieces ranging in price from $34.50 to $150, and launches nationwide in select BR stores on June 7; the collection will also be available online. You can find the Trina Turk for Banana Republic collection exclusively at the Houston Galleria.

To celebrate the Trina Turk launch, the Houston Galleria is hosting an in-store party at 5 p.m. on June 7, at which time the entire collection will be available for sale to the public. To sweeten the deal, Banana Republic cardholders will receive $30 off purchases over $100, as well as a Trina Turk bangle bracelet. Enjoy complimentary refreshments as you shop.
