Emirates Woman brings you the monthly edit of the season’s top must-have pieces. This week’s trend is rope and glory. 

From construction cords to bungee climbing ropes, this functional finishing touch is binding its way across the coolest new-season accessories. Talk about getting strung out.

Silk cord belts are casually knotted or fastened with toggles,  giving off an impromptu, DIY vibe, while bags make a statement with chunky rope handles. Flat sandals and heeled shoes form Sophia Webster and Isabel Marant feature leather ropes that strap up the ankle while bright gymnasium inspired cords can be seen across jewellery collections form Marc by Marc Jacobs and Marni. Summer hats hit the high seas again, Lanvin takes on a nautical theme with fisherman style rope and proves that this seafaring motif is a perennial favourite.
