For her Clover Canyon resort collection, Rozae Nichols evoked the spirit of The Pike — the amusement park in Long Beach, Calif. that she used to visit as a child — with a fun, happy, print-heavy collection rooted in Sixties silhouettes. “We wanted to do an homage to the very classic idea of resort,” Nichols said of her lineup of flirty shift dresses, miniskirts, crop tops and caftans done mostly in Neoprene, crepe de chine and chiffon.
The looks were rendered in colorful hand-painted stripes — a new print for the label — as well as paisley, a California poppy floral and a dot print. Some styles were adorned with lace-up necklines, laser-cut or Lurex trims and oversize grommet details. Elsewhere, a navy-and-white striped halter-neck top and high-waisted sailor pants riffed on classic nautical themes.
