Hot New Line: We Love These Nautical Knots

With the sun heating up the pavement, we're all about escaping to the seaside for some salty ocean breezes to stop that summer sweat. But, if you don't have time to book it to Jones Beach, the next best thing might be Allison Hertzberg's new jewelry line Accessories by ASH. While she works out of the East Village, Hertzberg's inspirations range a little further out than Avenue B. For the summer, she's got the Knotz collection, exhibiting the mad skills she picked up while doing a documentary on lobster fisherman in Maine. It's a fresh interpretation on the nautical rope craze, with some nostalgic elements that are updated with neon color schemes, antiqued chains, and some really rad shapes. Plus, with most of her wares available on Etsy, you know her stuff is lots cheaper (it's all under $40!) than a trip to Montauk.
To inject some ocean breeze into your daily grind, we've got you covered sailor. In honor of Fleet Week, one reader will get a headband or a knot bracelet (the choice is yours!). Post a picture on our Facebook wall with your most navally inspired pic. The one that's got us saying "Aye, aye cap'n!" scores the knots!
LISTEN UP: See if you'll be set for summer. We'll announce the winner tomorrow at noon via twitter and on our Facebook page.
