Tropical Diamond Pants ($260)
We've come across a slew of printed silk trousers this season, but this CC pair has to be one of our favorites. The mélange of punchy hues in a mirrored floral print give the pants a striking and bold look suited for a resort getaway or chic poolside fete. As for an appropriate footwear pairing, we asked the designer, and she said she'd wear them with stacked huarache sandals-a smart styling choice indeed.
Dutch Wallpaper Top ($195) in Multi
Thanks to the juxtaposed wallpaper prints and asymmetrical cut, this sleeveless top is sure to turn heads wherever you go. Perfect for adding a touch of modernity and interest to a pair of white jeans or black mini skirt, consider this your next closet go-to-it's already ours!
Passion Flower Skirt Though the Passion Flower Skirt shown above was never produced (sigh), here at WWW we believe it still deserves a moment in the spotlight. Happily, this isn't the only piece in the S/S 12 collection featuring that amazing tropical motif! The Printed Crepe de Chine Shorts ($135) are every bit as delightful as the skirt, and with a slightly sporty cut and drawstring waist, are perfect for a sun-drenched casual weekend outing.
Hang Ten Dress ($212) in Green
It's obvious that the Hang Ten Dress is a visual delight-the combination of the palm tree and multicolored horizontal stripes feels so fun and fresh for summer-but what we really love about this frock is its streamlined silhouette; it hugs the body in all the right places. Bonus points are awarded for its versatility, as you can wear it to the office with a blazer and pointed-toe pumps, then swap in a chic clutch and strappy sandals when the sun goes down.
Q&A with Rozae Nichols

It was the perfect culmination between industrial design and industrious craft.
What was the inspiration behind this season's collection?
A cross pollination of Dutch/African motifs, which suggests that indigenous African beading is as majestic as refined precious gems.
How would you style specific pieces from this collection? Do you have a favorite piece in the collection?
Every season bears new favorites!
What kind of girl do you envision wearing your clothing?
Clover Canyon is designed for women who appreciate modern, artistic clothing. She understands and enjoys wearing thoughtfully bold color and ironic prints in cool, understated silhouettes.
How does your design process for a collection start?
I am blessed with a wonderful team. We work together daily to share and put forth our inspirations as a collective of experiences from our travels, our collective imaginations, and skills. It is an ongoing, constantly inspiring process.
