Clover Canyon Spring 2014
In its first few years out of the gate, Clover Canyon made quite the splash with bright, too-happy-to-miss prints, and Spring '14 doesn't let us down. The LA-designed line leans to nature by way of watercolor blooms, grassy shoots, and what looked like slightly faded frangipani-type flowers. There's an industrial lean this go-around as well; architectural blue prints were shown not just in navy, but black and white, too, and graphic shapes mimicked the rendering of a city layout and domestic residence. Floral or functional, it's all lightened up for Spring. The brand is perfected using neoprene for clothes that hold their shape, but this collection dabbles in organza that's as floaty as you like. In the way of financial advisers, we're issuing a big "buy" on it all.
