Although the Spring 2014 collection from Clover Canyon walked down the runway six months ago, I wanted to share it because it is one of my favorite collections for this spring. Designer Rozae Nichols from southern California is best known for her use of bold and colorful prints. She uses digital print technology and her experience with textiles to turn photographs and geometric shapes into one of a kind prints. The Clover Canyon brand is designed and manufactured in Los Angeles and is influenced by Californian scenery.
Rozae Nichols’ 2014 Spring collection was inspired by architecture such as John Lautner’s famous Chemosphere and Charles and Ray Eames as well as the landscapes and design of California. It includes silhouettes such as pants suits, tank top dresses, skirts with crop tops, loose fitting shorts and coats.
Rozae takes a very literal interpretation of the scenery and architecture that she incorporates into her designs and carefully combines color, texture, and pattern to create brilliantly constructed prints. In this collection she found inspiration in gardens, modern interior design, and and even blue prints.
“These are clothes embarked on an endless voyage, from the tribal plains of Africa and the courts of ancient kings, through the annals of art history, and beyond. Shapes convey the modern ease.”
Clover Canyon continues to surprise us with what is possible in the world of fashion and is a truly unique brand in what they create through print design.
