Floral prints abound on S19 menswear runways. There are packed blossoms, flat flower-power daisies, lush roses and little ditsies, all used for woven shirts, jackets, smooth knits or screened onto tees. A single bloom can be painted onto a suit jacket or heat-transfered onto a trench coat. For the true flower-lover, there are even posey-printed pants and jeans.

Gingham always comes around for Resort and Spring, but this time the newness is in the scale and the attitude. Rather than sweet little checks for flouncy Bardot dresses, the new checks are bigger and bolder, and are used for stronger silhouettes. There are slouchy gingham pantsuits and oversized checks for camp shirts, knit dresses and slubby sweater sets. The pattern is used head-to-toe or mixed with florals. Our favorite mismatch is the juxtaposition of gingham with checkerboard, an approach that brings out the graphic quality of this timeless warm-weather motif.

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.

The collections may be for Fall-Winter 18, but all the florals say springtime. The runways are awash in splashy flower motifs of all kinds — watercolors, warp-prints, inky line drawings, silhouettes and appliqués. Gorgeous, giant blossoms adorn dresses, skirts, hooded cloaks, printed velvet tights, and even enliven a classic peacoat for men.

Any garment — sweatshirt, dress, tee or skirt — can become a canvas for eye-catching prints for next fall. Digital printing techniques encourage giant allover motifs rather than traditional placed designs or small repeats. Imagery comes from past and present fine art, snapshots, nature photos, vintage illustrations or tropical scenics. Black grounds add more drama for an ironic “painting on velvet” feel.
