I’ve been following the fashion shows for, erm, 30-some years — ever since watching Elsa Klensch on CNN Saturday mornings while other kids were watching cartoons — and I can’t ever recall a season where the humble crewneck pullover factored so prominently into collection after collection after collection. In Resort 2014, it shows up reinterpreted more ways than I can count. In knits, leathers, wovens and combinations thereof; solids, patterns and appliques; eyelets and laser-cut “lace.” The list goes on. So much inspiration around simple shapes beautifully rendered. I spent most of Sunday trying to wrangle an epic post detailing a vast array of them, but it was totally unmanageable. In the end, I had to whittle it down to this relatively small pile of images (click to enlarge). You’ll have to follow the links to see all these tops in their full glory. I hope you find something inspiring in it!
