Friday Fun: Calypso St. Barth for Targét, Prep World Under Construction

Hello-Hello, and happy Friday!

It has been quite awhile since we did a proper Friday Fun post, we think we’re overdue for some lighthearted frivolity and hope you agree.

We begin with a quick glance at the new Trina Turk collection for Schumacher, purveyor of fine fabrics and wall coverings to the design trade.

The collection is just now launching and we love the bright, vibrant prints.

It’s no secret here at The Prepatorium we are fond of Ms. Turk’s work, the beauty of these new textiles is that they are all suited for both indoor and outdoor use.

As with most of her creations, the designer’s bold geometric prints make a strong statement.

The Consort very much appreciates the blue palette, it is his favorite color scheme.

The heavily saturated colors create a lush feel, the blue and teal and green shriek poolside cocktail party.

Other motifs are done in warmer hues.

The color palette for another new collection nicely complements the hues seen above, we have an early look at the upcoming Calypso St. Barth line for Le Boutique Targét.

The company’s reputation for bright, bohemian designs is evident throughout the group; accessories also showcase tie-dye motifs in rich tones.

A few more very quick hits, our first comes via the amazingly talented Pink Martini and Pearls, she recently shared pieces from Janna Conner Designs, a jewelry line we hadn’t heard about previously.

When visiting the Pink Martini you may want to stay a few moments to gaze upon some of her edible creations.

Also on our hit parade, the new Vera Wang Barbie was released yesterday.

The ‘doll’ is priced at $159.95; at the risk of sounding more out of step than usual, are these made for little girls to actually “play” with? Or are they created primarily for people to collect and re-sell?

We must admit however, the detailing is exquisite.

Next, an early look at the first “Prep World” pop-up shop under construction in Paris.

In addition to apparel, the merchandise will include lifestyle items like croquet sets and backgammon boards.

The Paris shop opens next week, on the 21st.

A final note on an event that is sure to be fun.

This year’s warehouse sale is June 9-11 at the same spot, the Valley Forge Convention Center in KOP (King of Prussia). Mark your calendars if planning to take advantage of the bargains.

With that, happy weekend to all!
