Winter Palace by Clover Canyon FW13
Photography by yours truly-
We didn’t need anyone to tell us what the theme of the show was. The models had a beautiful up-do with a fluffed-out bun and a simple hairband while clad in the infamous Clover Canyon prints.
It was a general hue of blues and whites, which reminded us of an icy winter- a romantic Siberian one. For Fall ‘13, Clover Canyon pays homage to Russia, weaving printed ballerinas and Siberian plains into their garments. Swarovski pumps and ballet pointe shoes fit these models’ feet like Cinderella’s glass slippers as they stood quietly in front of the winter backdrop, their eyes blinking softly.
The prints on these clothes contained a collage of dreams - winged horses, ballerinas in fluffy white tutus, golden swans and a crystal palace. It was no wonder that we (especially Rachel) kept sighing over these pieces. It took Nicole a good amount of time to convince Rachel to leave the show that day. For the record, we ended up staying till the models left the stage.
Congratulations Clover Canyon, we think it’s safe to say everything was en pointe.
