Inspired by Cy Twombly's abstract works, Clare joined fashion designer and friend Jennifer Rodríguez-Selden from label Quincampoix to collaborate on a new collection. Clare studied with Jennifer at Central Saint Martins in 1999. With a shared love of colour and experimental drawing, they collaborated on an exclusive print project, based on Cy Twombly’s expressive paintings. Rodríguez-Selden and McEwan studied and absorbed Twombly's palette and gestural paint marks, to transform a body of their Twombly-inspired paintings into prints for fashion. They used digital photography to combine the handwriting of both designers into each of the edited prints. Womenswear label Quincampoix presents a forward-looking collection that combines luxury materials of silk, wool and leather, and incorporates painterly silk prints into female garments. The label defines itself by highly skilled pattern cutting and attention to detail.
For C F McEwan, Clare has created a limited edition range of scarf designs in printed silk crepe and cashmere. Each scarf is decorated with expressive and vibrant texture and colour - a trademark of all C F McEwan designs.
Artwork is printed onto lightweight 100% silk crepe de chine, square in size, 125cm x 125cm and 100% cashmere 190cm x 65cm. Scarves are photographed by Lindsay Watson, Hair and Make-up by Alice Oliver and Model Isabelle at Nevs.
