Clover Canyon Spring 2014 – New York Fashion Week

 

The Clover Canyon Spring 2014 collection looked back at its region of origin, Southern California, and dubbed its latest offering “Local Light.”  Here is an excerpt from their detailed inspiration, courtesy of the company’s Facebook page:

“This season, Clover Canyon rediscovers Southern California, looking on its native landscape with new eyes, and indulging the domestic pleasures. Clean, crisp and airy, the collection conjures the forward-looking architecture and design of California’s mid century heyday, referencing homes such as John Lautner’s iconic Chemosphere, in Los Angeles, and the work of household modernists Charles and Ray Eames. Southern California’s legendary light is paid homage, as well prismatically, via the inspiration of light artists such as Robert Irwin, Dan Flavin, and James Turrell.

“New materials include printed laser cut neoprene, filmy organzas, and transparent embossed rubber that conjure the glassy interiors of the late sixties.

“Alongside Bertoia-esque warped grids, torqued dots inspired by [Frank] Gehry’s music hall in L.A., half tone dots redolent of [Roy] Lichtenstein canvases and color bars that nod at the neon resins and Lucite sculptures of Larry Bell and John McCracken, Clover Canyon has accessed a unique trove of architectural blueprints, courtesy of the firm Escher Gune Wardena. These include a graphite rendering of the Jamie House, a magnificently engineered home which they designed and built in the tradition of California modernism.”
