It’s always interesting to see where designers draw their inspiration from. I was flicking through an old issue of Russh (July/August 2008 FYI) and found myself re-reading an article on Josh Goot’s Spring Summer 08/09 collection, which used manipulated digital prints of the sky to create some breathtaking garments. It seems that Goot was on to a good thing. More recently, local label Limedrop used prints of fluffy white clouds on an array of garments for its A/W 2010 collection. And who could forget Christopher Kane’s Resort 2010 collection? You know, the one with the vivid orange and yellow skyscapes and an almost doomsday feel about it (which was further exemplified by the use of prints of an atomic bomb cloud). From Goot’s marbled prints, to Kane’s almost apocalyptic interpretation, it’s always interesting to see how different designers interpret what is essentially the same subject matter.

Now, all this talk has got me in the mood for some cloud watching.
