Functional knots, as in ones nes that amend the fit or fall of a garment, are enjoying ng a burst of popularity.
Wrap skirts, wrap tops, wrap p dresses, neck-tie evening jackets, kets, tie-front blouses and tie-neck k shirts… if you knot it, chances are, it’s available in na a local store right now.
There are also a few knots, like the bow on Hailwood’s jersey, or the knot on Seed’s shoes, that at are there for decoration alone.
Why so knotty? Well, those in their 20s and early y 30s might be thinking of the likes of Brooke Shields ds with her shirt or tee knitted just so at the waist. Further back, those who hold a flame for 1970s style yle might be remembering Diane von Furstenberg in one of her original wrap dresses. It’s a dual influence nce that appeals to many.
Compared to a garment that is stitched closed, these garments are also quite adaptable, so there are functional advantages to their popularity too.
As for which influence I prefer? It’s a tie. Ha ha.
