Brand Sensibility and Aesthetic
Elaine Turner embodies a fun, yet sophisticated, ladylike glamour with a bold, modern Texas spirit. The brand consists of handbags, shoes, jewelry, apparel, and a line of small leather goods designed in structured silhouettes and crafted from luxurious materials that will remain classics year after year. We believe that fashion should be glamourous, functional, and effortlessly fun for women of all ages.
At Elaine Turner, we take great pride in excellent artistry and believe that luxury is in the details. That’s why each and every design begins with carefully chosen materials from around the globe. Since launching the brand in 2000, we have become known for our incredible attention to detail, high-quality products, functional versatility, and above all, exceptional value.
Our Italian and Brazilian washed leathers are rich and velvety to the touch, adding natural drama and depth to unstructured shapes. Saturated hues bring the natural grain of the leather to life as it effortlessly drapes to form timeless silhouettes.
Adorning handbags, shoes, and jewelry alike, Elaine Turner finds true inspiration in the versatility of cork. The subtle texture and neutral color make our Spanish cork a natural year-round choice for accessories, always adding a touch of the unexpected to an otherwise classic silhouette.
Intricately woven and exceptionally resilient, our raffias are sourced from the most renowned Spanish and Italian merchants. Originally inspired by raffia wallpaper during a home decorating project, raffia later became the material that put Elaine Turner on the map with the debut of the Jackie bag in 2000. Whether in bold colors, graphic patterns, or timeless neutrals, this refined textile has become fundamental to our collections.
Our apparel is designed to fit seamlessly into all facets of the modern woman’s life. Sourcing from the finest mills, we incorporate only the highest quality fabrics, such as Georgette, Silk Charmeuse, and Crepe de Chine, into our collections. Each season features custom designed prints and colors exclusive to Elaine Turner.
Custom elements and signature features are an integral part of what makes Elaine Turner designs so unique. From bamboo touches to the signature pink jacquard handbag lining, custom Elaine Turner details have become synonymous with timeless sophistication and effortless glamour.
In pursuit of classic accessories with timeless appeal, Elaine Turner developed custom hardware in a light gold finish that is both understated and effortless, pairing easily with the diverse range of any woman’s accessories. This unique metal hue adds gentle luster to the rivets and fasteners adorning all of the products.
Injecting a sense of escapism into our products, Elaine Turner adopted bamboo as one of our signature elements. Whether fashioned in our custom gold hardware or from lacquered, natural bamboo, this design feature evokes a feeling of nostalgia and exudes tropical charm.
Pink Jacquard Lining
The pink jacquard lining is undoubtedly one of Elaine Turner’s most recognizable handbag features. Designed in our signature maze print, the bright lining is both fun and functional, allowing you to easily locate items in even the roomiest of totes. An homage to Elaine’s mother, Marlaine, and her battle with breast cancer, the vivid pink color is a visual reminder of the giving spirit that is at the core of our brand and belief system.
We believe handbags should not only look glamourous, but function flawlessly as well, which is why most large handbag silhouettes feature separate compartments for both smartphones and keys, comfortable top handles, and adjustable shoulder straps. Smaller clutches include a lipstick mirror for quick touchups on the go and a zipped pocket for stashing essentials.
Memory Foam Insole
From heels to flats, Elaine Turner shoes boast a comfortable memory foam lining, constructed to mold to the unique shape of your foot. Our memory foam technology features a lightweight design that delivers all-day support and ultimate comfort.
A signature emblem, the five-point crown adorns nearly all products. Whether gold plated or resin filled, the crown symbolizes how we hope our customers feel when wearing Elaine Turner pieces—like royalty.
