Todd Snyder x John Derian Cloud Print Short

3 items left

Part of our collaboration with the acclaimed decoupage artist, this is based on a vintage cloud plate from John Derian’s extensive archive.The silhouette of the short is based on our popular Bahama Short, which clocks in at 7 inches in length and combines the comfort of a pull on short with the polish of a dress one. The short features an elasticized waistband with a button closure and button fly. Has a vented hem at the side seam and welt pockets, which make them perfect for days that involve the 3Bs (beach, bike BBQ).There is a matching Camp Collar Shirt for those who want to create a matching Cloud Cabana Set. 

Todd’s interest in a creative partnership with Derian began back when he would browse Derian’s East Village shop during lunch hour over a decade ago. “For me, John is the originator of creating vintage heirlooms, and I loved how his store was a treasure trove of beautiful things,” says Todd, who found himself collecting paperweights, plates and paintings.  The fabrics were made in Italy based upon prints from John Derian’s extensive archive on Orchard Street in Lower Manhattan. The two design teams went  through a vast library of vintage prints, plates and other historical ephemera, then Snyder’s design team adapted them into patterns that would work on apparel before sending them to one of Italy’s leading mills to transform the designs into resort wear. 

   “There’s a sense of fun and whimsy in what John does,” notes Todd. “And so that lent itself to starting our partnership with cabana sets and more casual wear.”

   Please note: these shorts are really wearable work-of-arts and as such were produced in very limited quantities.
