Ropes Course


The Marc By Marc Jacobs Line always seems to spark a DIY to me. The Fall 08 line had little replicable mirror brooches and his SS08 line had the LEGOS! For this years Spring 09 line, I spied ROPE jewelry.


I purchased some multicolored rope in Italy last summer because I was set on making lanyard knot necklaces. I did nothing with the rope until I saw this collection...

Instead of making those confusing lanyard knots, I basically just tied up all the ropes together to make a necklace in knots of my own.


I like how he took bright colored ropes and accessorized the muted colored outfits with it.




It's completely personal and there is no wrong way to do it - just buy some ropes and make some big knots!

Great job! I love how MJ can create something so different, but unlike other designers he does it in such a way that it can be pulled off by the average person on the street.

I can't believe how stylish ropes can look. I love it! :)

It's so impressive and the mark of a true creative genius how he makes something that at first glances look so weird, actually look hot! This totally reminds me of the 80s when I used to wear neon rope jewelery.

He does seem to create very DIY-able accessories. I love the bright colors.
