Trina Turk and Agent Provocateur Come to Phipps Plaza
Think California-chic and European cheek, when two sparkling new fashion boutiques come to Buckhead
By Nancy Staab
Ladies, take your pick: boho-chic Palm Springs prints and accessories…and/or racy, lacy lingerie? Both are coming to Phipps Plaza this summer.
Designer Trina Turk is besotted with the 1960’s and 1970’s and, likewise, her sunny, groovy, California aesthetic will dominate her new boutique at Phipps Plaza when it arrives this summer. Turk is known for her splashy prints, resort wear, colorful jewelry and rainbow-bright accessories like throw pillows and beach towels. Even men get the Turk treatment with a line called Mr. Turk. Ladies will adore her exotic tunics, cheery caftans and easy silk dresses-- perfect for beachy escapes or summer in the city. Turk’s boutiques tend to have a graphic, mid-century modern vibe and bright splashes of citrus colors. For more info visit: www.trinaturk.com
Channel a more saucy vibe with the London-based Agent Provocateur boutique, also coming to Phipps Plaza this summer. Agent Provocateur has long been a purveyor of well-crafted and sexy little underthings throughout Europe, Asia, Russia, etc. They also have several U.S.-based boutiques in L.A., Chicago, New York, Miami, etc. Now they are bringing their lacy lingerie and sexy hosiery, swimwear and accessories to Atlanta. The real winners in this situation may be Atlanta men, who may be getting some sophisticated eyefuls in the boudoir once this flirty little boutique opens it signature pink-and-black showroom. Agent Provacateur opens Sat. May 18 at Phipps Plaza. For more info: www.agentprovocateur.com
