Marcia Patmos continues to elevate the simple knit. For resort, the designer delivered more of her convertible garments — sweaters with detachable collars, reversible tanks and dresses in pretty dip-dyed hues — and merrily spliced fabrics and textures. Cardigans came with panels of sheer silk, sometimes done in braided chiffon; belted vests and tops were embellished at the shoulders with woven strips of suede, while hand-knit sweaters — done by a collective in Bolivia — sported a mix of stripes and fringe embellishments. And if Patmos struck a rather earthy chord throughout, the inspiration behind her rust, pink and blue color palette was rooted in a decidedly urban factor: a book entitled “The Rise of Jamaican Dancehall Culture.”
