For Clover Canyon's third anniversary, the brand headed (in spirit) back to Ireland. It's the place of designer Rozae Nichols' heritage, and it appears to be surprisingly lysergic, based on the designer's Fall collection. While Clover Canyon is known for its over-the-top patterns, this season's batch felt notably hallucinatory. Irish icons like Oscar Wilde, stained-glass windows, tartans, and the Book of Kells all got the kaleidoscopic CC print treatment. There were hysterically lime green meadows, unicorns and fairies, and even an appearance by Nichols' great-grandmother.

The more successful propositions included a black overcoat with a flocked, distressed royal blue tartan print, and a relatively quiet trompe l'oeil frock where white curtains danced across a black background and over a field of crimson flowers. A worsted wool skirt that dissolved into airy lace was also nice, but it was overpowered by the rest of the ensemble. By the time a fluorescent rainbow set over roses on a velour fleece sweatshirt, the feeling was akin to having had too many bites of a particularly rich dessert. It didn't help that the collection was shown in presentation format, all the models standing on a lone mossy knoll in Lincoln Center's pavilion. Departing the room, the silhouettes of the clothes themselves faded away, leaving only a few acid-hued elements pulsating in their wake.
