Trend ahoy! Forget your cosy cable knitwear a split sec, for I have news for you. There is a new recurring theme of note (knot?) in the land of Spring-Summer 15. Before we allow our wardrobes to get involved, however, it’s always a good idea to check credentials.

Surfing the nautical wave, fashion fanatics will have spotted cool-girl Isabel Marant, who knotted ropes atop bulky vests and jackets with effortless ease. In a simple twist on the usual garment belt, Veronique Branquinho also looped and tied cords to break up the feminine figures of her skirt and tulle ensembles. Curtain call came with Hermès, master of tasteful trendsetting, who closed the season with double-tie cinching over the simplest of draped suiting.

Looks like the brownie years might come in handy after all.
