Accessories alert: Knots landing

Remember those neon bracelets and lanyards we all had at summer camp? They’re back for spring/summer 2010.

Then we noticed it again when jewelry designer Jaclyn Mayer, inspired by the sculptures of Orly Genger, created knotted statement pieces for her newest collection.

The trend continues with Proenza Schouler‘s recently unveiled sporty-chic looks—think neon rope belts, jewelry, and handbag detailing (below). Mixed with the tie-dyed prints Jack and Lazaro sent down the runway—come spring you’ll be ready for a real mess hall moment.
