TIED IN KNOTTS: Jean-Paul Knott has had a busy summer. In addition to designing costumes for Béjart Ballet Lausanne’s new production of “Bolero,” which will premiere in Beijing on Oct. 15, the Belgian designer is launching a jewelry collection in November. The Knott Jewels collection features items including wraparound chain necklaces tipped with leather bows and cubic rings on a stretchy band inspired by a bra strap. Knott previewed these alongside his spring-summer collection, which includes clever convertible items like a circular skirt that can be worn as a blouse or poncho, or a silk satin T-shirt with an elasticated neckline that transforms into a skirt.
