It’s not quite swimsuit weather, even here in Venice Beach, but designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi of fashion line Preen are tempting us to make a splash with their new swimwear line inspired by none other than David Hockney.

In complete reverie for Hockney’s seminal painting “A Bigger Splash,” see how the designers take creative influence from this work to inform their playful designs.

Here’s a short excerpt:
David Hockney and Los Angeles Light by Liz Ohanesian
"Seven Yorkshire Landscape Videos" (2011), the current David Hockney show at LACMA, sits in Resnick Pavilion, tucked behind the bright, geometric mobiles of Calder and Abstraction. It’s a single work showcased in a small room lined with minimal seating. Every now and again, people escape the hullaballoo of the Calder preview for the serenity in here. The number of bodies fumbling towards seats in movie theater darkness fluctuates. Three people. Four people. When the crowd reaches 10-plus some stand straight-backed against the walls. The videos run on HD, LCD screens that form a grid. It’s a large projection, you need to watch it in parts. Take a minute to focus on the left-hand side of the screen, then turn your head to the right. Watch the scenes shift as though you’re taking in a tennis match. Or, you could pick a side and just concentrate. It’s quiet inside the room as you watch the landscape unfold and change. You could become transfixed by the scene, spend minutes or more in here unaware that the afternoon is slipping into evening.
