Trina Turk Views Miami Beach

Walk around Trina Turk's Bal Harbour boutique and chances are it will feel as familiar as a stroll through the Fontainebleau or Eden Roc Renaissance hotels. "I'm a huge Morris Lapidus fan," says Turk of the architect celebrated for shaping the Mid-century Modern look of 1950s Miami Beach. "We definitely used his work as the inspiration for Bal Harbour, from the curved soffit lighting to the aqua and white terrazzo tiles. His retail architecture is incredible. Look at Lincoln Road."
