L.A. gents are about to get a big dose of digital color. Clover Canyon, one of our favorite Los Angeles-based labels, is expanding its offering of print-happy apparel to include menswear for the first time. Joining Michael Stars, also bringing its signature style to the realm of menswear, Clover Canyon’s in-your-face graphics and techincolor wonders made their debut at Las Vegas’ Project trade show and are set to be in-store just in time for Spring 2015.

“So much has evolved in terms of men expressing bolder individual style,” Clover Canyon designer Rozae Nichols told Style.com. “For men, having fun with fashion is now more acceptable by even the most restrained observers.”

Nichols decided to design a few pieces for guys when she was being asked to design more and more unisex pieces with her trademark prints, patterns and bold colors. So instead of just giving guys a taste of the Clover Canyon life, Nichols decided to create an entire collection of bomber jackets, neoprene sweatshirts, board shorts and streetwear savvy sneakers.

Just like her womenswear collections, the debut menswear line is inspired by a one-of-a-kind cultural reference. For the first collection, entitled Electric Lotus, Rozae drew upon energy and the practices of meditation, acupuncture and more. The prints include a bamboo image mashed up with gears as well as fantasy florals combined with electrical currents. The result is a collection is sure to catch the eye of roving photographers. And in the real world? It takes a guy with a singular sense of style to pull of head-to-toe prints, but we’re sure that these designs will find their way onto the red carpet and stage performances in the coming weeks.
