She Finds Was There: Elaine Turner Spring Collection Launch

SheFinds was at Elaine Turner's 5th Avenue showroom this week to check out the designer's new Spring designs for handbags and shoes. Her style is often described as "usable resortwear", meaning that it's simultaneously chic, summery, and (at least in theory) pragmatic, too. The 2009 Spring line is more structured than the Fall collection you'll see below, and reflects the bright colors we've been seeing on the runway recently. All items include the sort of woven/wicker material in their designs, which is what gives them that undeniably resort look. The 2009 shoes were also darling, very feminine ballet flats and sophisticated sandals with metal hardware details. All quite nice.

Unfortunately you won't be able to see this stuff until January, when it comes out. Until then, here's a selection of Turner's current Fall 2008 collection, which is, after all, what you should be thinking about now. (Personally, that 6-month anticipation period between Fashion Week and next season is a little baffling to me).

I love the fuschia of this Lainey Voyager Croc Model ($595), which has a custom bamboo turnlock, copious interior accessory pockets, and a groovy pink lining.

And this Andie Distressed Leather Carryall ($198) looks to me less like resortwear and more like a travel item, with its detachable shoulder strap, exterior and interior pockets, and–again–that groovy signature pink lining.

And you'll be the belle of the glam ball in these gilded wedges ($250). No pink lining on these, though, I'm sad to say.
