The newest sweaters for resort are pieced and patched. The patched effect can be as simple as color-blocked intarsias or as complex as a collage of mixed stitchery. Space-dyed or marled yarns add more dimension, as do fringed edges. The technique works for flat knits and ribs as well as chunky cables, and a stretch lace version shows that these can be interpreted in cut-and-sew as well. Patchworked leather bags and sandals complete the look.

Many of the looks being shown for Cruise/Resort confirm our Foragers Trend Tale for Spring 19. There are all sorts of country-fresh separates and dresses cut from humble dishtowel checks, simple stripes, crinkled plaids and homespun patchworks. Raw or self-fringed edges add to the unfettered feel, as do string-ties and flounced hemlines — most hitting an inch or two above the ankle.

Textured sweaters are all the rage on the New York runways, and look especially fetching in candy-heart shades like coral, cotton candy pink and Valentine red. There are creative cables, high stand necklines, rough topstitches and fat rosettes adding extra interest to cozy pullovers. Novelty sleeves continue to gain momentum and distressed details (like placed runs) keep all the sweet colors from getting too precious.
