The Folk Art–Inspired Fashion on Our Spring Wishlist

Our favorite spring looks would make great-granny proud.

March 24, 2023

From stencils to spongeware to spatter-painted floors, old-fashioned folk art techniques are making a comeback in a major way in the world of interiors. And on this spring’s runways, the look proved equally compelling—and wearable. At Bode, Sea, and Kenzo, models trotted out in a veritable quilting bee’s worth of patchwork, while Rosie Assoulin embraced fraktur-style motifs and Story Mfg. reimagined the humble afghan as a lust-worthy accessory. Take a look at some of our favorite pieces below.

  • Cari Patchwork Jacket ($595), Cari Patchwork Shorts ($295), and Winn T-Shirt ($150) by Sea NY, sea-ny.com.
