Sauntering into spring wearing snow-pant cut-offs and declaring that goose-down lederhosen is the latest European trend is probably a fashion misstep. The collections at Elaine Turner are more like a step in the right direction. Each one is an extension of Elaine's own personality and passions embodied by bold prints, rich colors and exotic textures. The collection of shoes—heels, wedges, flats and sandals—cover all terrains. The 2010 Spring Collection is inspired by the theme of “Island Hopping,” so sandals are given top billing with distinct styles such as the T-strap ($175–$195), Roman ($175), and flip-flop ($150) to select. The hand bags ($150+) come in more than six styles and also contain island-themed beach options, which are fit for lugging metal detectors, pirate maps, and fully constructed sand castles around an archipelago.
