It’s been nearly a decade since H-Town-based accessory designer Elaine Turner launched her namesake line of clutches, totes and, more recently, shoes. Today, the former apparel designer and merchandiser is well-known nationally for her timeless, travel-inspired collections, which she sells at her boutiques, Nordstrom stores and 200 specialty shops throughout the U.S.
At Turner’s cheery Rice Village-set store, customers can snag shimmery croc totes, embossed snake bowler bags and punchy patent envelope clutches. The shop also stocks the designer’s shoe collection, which features preppy, printed flats, chunky heels and croc boots.
But it’s not just Turner’s accessories filling the art deco space. The biz also carries feminine jewelry—many from Texas-based designers—Shine home accessories and fashion-inspired coffee table tomes.
