Trina is a luxury lifestyle brand that has existed since the 1940s. Led by Cheryl Vance, a design veteran with 15+ years of experience in both the apparel and home furnishings worlds, the brand has recently re-emerged in the last six years to become the industry leader in bringing couture design and inspiration to cosmetic bags and travel organizers.
I have purchased travel organizers from my favorite shopping haunts (Target = happiness) and I’ve been pleased with the fun designs and the basic functionality. However, it seems those bags are more suitable for my daughters regarding styles offered. Trina combines couture details, fashion silhouettes, colors and fabrics, with ultimate functionality. I feel I could use the Bamboo Island Mini Square Organizer as an evening bag! You can’t say that about many travel cases.
First thing I had to check was the zipper quality. A bag can have the most gorgeous design but if the zipper doesn’t work, forget it. With my Trina bag I found the substantial gold zipper accenting the black and white design, not only looked chic but was also smooth. The inside was wonderfully crafted with fine stitching and no sharp edges. I’ve had my share of scratched hands from poorly crafted liners.
Trina bags are available at Nordstrom locations and fine boutiques nationwide. To locate a retailer please visit http://www.trinastyle.com/.
