RIP Mr. Turk
One of my favorite fashion designers, Mr. Turk, just passed away at the very young age of 55 (my age, actually). His death was a result of a swimming accident he suffered over Labor Day weekend in Hawaii. Oh dear. You never know when live is going to take a turn.
Sending condolences to his family.
Jonathan Skow (aka Mr. Turk) is credited with defining Palm Springs men's style, and I personally have a collection that spans shirts, shorts, pants, jackets, and swimwear. I love his swimwear!
My husband and I bought a place in Palm Springs just a few years ago and we now call it home, in addition to New York. I can honestly say that one of the things I love about Palm Springs is the style, of which Mr. Turk is largely responsible.
I will truly miss him. His social feeds are so much fun and certainly inspiring from a fashion sense. We shop his store with great frequency. I certainly do hope that he lives on in his legacy, and that the fashion never stops.
RIP Mr. Turk. You are pretty amazing.
What's your experience? JIM.
PS - Jonathan Skow's wife, Trina Turk, created her fashion line first which is equally amazing for women. Hence the brand name, Mr. Turk. I hope that this tragedy doesn't slow her down. Sending hugs.
