{style inspiration: knotted belts}

work-of-art-hed
knotted-belts
. . . this morning's walk with the dog was already quite blustery, calling for a belted cardigan, a favourite combination at this time of year, and especially if the belt is beautifully and artfully knotted, as these from rilleau . . .

created out of necessity during the s
econd world war, when metal production [along with petrol and sugar] was diverted to the war effort, causing the unavailability of metal buckles, [normally made of brass, nickel and iron or steel], these knotted belts also have no rivets or stitches, and each is cut freehand, without a pattern, and hand finished -- wouldn't they be lovely against pale pink cashmere?

Just picked up a leather and gold at CUSP!
last week- can't wait to wear it with black cashmere fitted t-neck and black leggings. ( and boots of course Chicago style).

Wow this is incredible! Which do you have, the bigger knot or the simpler one? I'm trying to decide which to get! Did anyone have any luck with DIY??
