Back to basics: The knotted trend reinvented

Jewelry full of memories. Or is it? The knotted trend brings back the fun and ease of past decades' childhood jewelry, yet making it all current. The novelty? Supple cotton or even silk thread is combined with metal accents or leather structures in a seamless way that makes it irresistible. Nautical-inspired knots and braiding are added to the mix making it a trend that goes beyond friendship bracelets. Look for textures, geometric patterns and golden hues for a stronger statement that is versatile and chic.

With boldness through chaos

Some trends seem artificial, irrelevant or a comeback that feels forced. Real design trends originate from a shared sentiment, outlook, lifestyle or response to an existing situation. In order to become a natural trend instead of only a commercial strategy, these feelings need to be a reality for many. 

The selection below represents a common expression. Whether its style is shared by ethnic, artsy, folksy or geometric trends, the strong palette, character and repetition in these pieces create statements that are hard to pass by. Supported by symmetry or the deliberate lack of it, these outfit tellers represent an attitude. The reason for its boldness and patterns?
To compensate for uncertainty in an ever-changing world.
