A cold and rainy spring evening couldn’t stop the party at the Mr Turk store in the Meatpacking District on Tuesday, April 3. Editors, fashion insiders, and lover of the brand packed house to celebrated the new Mr Turk swimwear collaboration with potter, designer, and author Jonathan Adler.

“Jonathan Adler is a good friend of mine and like me, an avid swimmer,” said Mr Turk designer Jonathan Skow in a statement at the time of the launch. “Whenever we’re on vacation together a good portion of the time is spent talking about beaches, swimming, and swimsuits. Last year when we were visiting his beach house on Shelter Island we came up with the idea to collaborate on a capsule swimwear collection. We combined the Mr Turk flair and fashion with Jonathan Adler’s prints and pizzazz. We came up with some sensational suits that will be sure to get you noticed at the pool party, beach or barbecue.”

The collection consisting of seven swim and cabana-wear styles, with prices ranging from $128 to $198, are now available at Mr Turk boutiques, select Jonathan Adler retail stores, on MrTurk.com and on JonathanAdler.com as well as at high-end department stores nationwide.
