Looking through the garments by Clover Canyon in their spring collection is an excercise on what to do with a busy print. My general rule is busy print = simple design lines and they do just that, keeping the focus on the great artwork in classic silhouettes.
Let's take a look:-
Design theme: Southern California architecture
Inspiration: Bertoia-esque warped grids, torqued dots inspired by Gehry’s music hall in L.A., half tone dots redolent of Lichtenstein canvases and color bars that nod at the neon resins and Lucite sculptures of Larry Bell and John McCracken.
I like the fringe on the cuff of the coat in the first photo.
Needless to say, its all about the prints and they are fantastic. There is a combination of stripes, florals, landscape, grid lines and dots and so well done.
