Things to do with rope

by jennine on January 9, 2008

I used to live with my jump-rope wrapped in my hands. A few months ago, I tried it again, and it’s much harder to do as an adult, that’s for certain. Much harder. Rope, it’s not something you see much as an adult. Unless you are a member of the yacht club, or Cornelia Parker, who cleverly wrapped a mile of rope around a Rodin sculpture. It’s not enough to call a trend, but there are enough dots to connect a rope revival… Both Benjamin Cho, and Emma Cook used the giant threads to play a part in their collection. I really love the idea of playing with such a utilitarian object, making it beautiful.

I absolutely loved Cho’s collection…Emma Cook’s was not my fave but I’ll forgive her because she’s busy with her newborn baby…. I expect her to get back up to form next season!
I will definitely be trying things out with rope detailing…

Cho’s collection is absolutely beautiful and very subtle

I love the colored rope details on the orange one-piece! It makes me think of kitschy little vintage beach souvenirs for some reason.

Cho’s collection was fabulous, and I do quite like Cook’s as well! The bright colours of the swimsuit are jumping out at me.
