Clements Ribeiro

clements ribeiro spring 2012

London: Inspired by designers Suzanne Clements and Inacio Ribeiro’s own workspace/home, the S/S 12 Clements Ribeiro offerings were largely characterized by their signature materials and prints. It was easy to imagine upholsteries or window coverings cut from this season’s silks and laces, and, in similar country floral, Toile de Jouy and petite polka-dot motifs. The aforementioned fabrics and patterns, as well as a pretty blue and pink palette, were ultra-feminine, but sporty elements like elasticized waistbands, raglan sleeves and racer-front tops, kept the overall vibe relaxed and low-key. –Whitney Kessler
