The Line (as usual) are perfectly on-trend with their recent editorial story featuring lots of beautiful knots and bows. The shoot features pieces from the SS16 collections of Altuzarra, Nehera, Proenza Schouler, and Protagonist.

I first noticed the knot trend when I spotted Christophe Lemaire sending his models down the catwalk with sweaters wrapped and tied around their necks in place of scarves, for his AW14 collection. This simple and elegant alternative to a zip, button or popper, the humble knot, has been popping up all over the place since; think of Tibi’s off-the-shoulder tops with tied wrists, Joseph’s two-piece knotted skirts and knits (both this season and last), Marant’s simple rope belts, and Céline’s knot bangle. I’ve also seen some impressive DIYers take on the trend, check out A Pair & A Spare’s alternative ways to wear a white shirt.
