Jewelry buttons: best tips for a look at the top!

At BUTTONS PARADISE, nothing is incidental. On the contrary, everything is in the difference and in THE Accessory with a big A. Jewelry buttons with a sense of [haute] couture detail !

The Jewelry button is primarily a style effect for a sublime look! For example, large round buttons that dress a classic strapless dress like Dior. But it can also be a solo button accessorized pin to adorn a Marni silk dress. I love the iconic button used as adornment …

Otherwise and as a wink, one can wear his eyes small rhinestone buttons like the Paris fashion show Dries Van Noten for Fashion Week 2018. In short, the jewel button is in you! Because it is YOU who decides on his style to affirm your singularity or your humor! And there BUTTONS PARADISE can guide you!

We all love light cotton coats in the fresh colors of summer. But here we go, sometimes the buttons or the pressures are not up to par. So to revisit the whole, bet on the shape of your buttons that become jewelry! Round and curved shapes like the Top Coat model! Or more sophisticated and seductive, opt for a square button made of Galalith resin.

Why fashion reveals us?

We live, I live a great fashion era! Born in the mid-60s, I wore elephant pasta pants and big strawberries.

And I do not know if you feel the same as me, but in recent months, I have the impression that the fundamentals of Yves Saint Laurent and Miss Chanel return to the heart of trends: a body unveiled-released.

So this is it. Let’s go for a decoding session around a fashion that exposes us and reveals us!

When designers reveal us

translucent fashion
Boots Doc Martens – Hat Martin Margiela – Top and pants Issey Miyake – Translucent Crocodile Jacket Hermès & Jean-Paul Gaultier – Gigi Hadid en Fendi

Basically, fashion designers are like us! More precisely, they know us well … Because above all, there is no question of disclosure but of interchangeable fashion. The spring-summer 2018 season is full of trench coats and translucent overcoats that subtly reveal our silhouette.

Transparency effects

From left to right: Pants Iris Van Herpen – Arm cuff Donna Karan – Dress Leaves Leandro Cano – Derbies & Other Stories – Cuff Michael Kors

But what is even more interesting I find, it is these audacities of forms and materials! Mix of PVC orsoft vinyl with pictos, inclusion of flowers!

Technological innovations

unusual fashion
From left to right: Sequins’ dress Prada – Cara Delevigne by Mario Testino in MiuMiu – Silver PVC top by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac – Converse – Jean-Paul Gaultier – Hat by Chanel

But contrary to appearances, wearing transparent clothing conceals technological prowess! Like Chanel and his hats felt and plexiglass. Because yes, now, the fabric rubs the flexible plastic and micro perforated!

Trench coats or translucent summer coats

Here, no comment! It’s beautiful. It sculpts and draws our forms like nobody. And besides, it’s fun, light and creative.

Fashion tips: the false collar stands out!

There are coquetries that do not deceive! The collar is one of them.

And if this neck accessory is too often neglected in our dressing room, it is probably that in our imagination, it refers to the nineteenth and male cloakroom. But noooo!!! Look! It’s beautiful, creative and above all, stylish with a big S.

Refined chokers or false collar?

From top to bottom and from left to right:
Faux-col Marni – Silk collar Vivetta – Faux-collar poplin and pearls Carmen Hauser – High collar Balenciaga – Faux collar red and pearl Pinterest – Faux collar pearls and rhinestones Dior

Because soft collars or collars in the manner of Elisabeth 1st, the false collar brings chic and style. Better! A collar fashions a little black dress in the evening. It is a female accessory so smart and clever! Besides, it allows to adopt a casual chic daytime look, on a sweater or a T-shirt. This is probably why designers and haute couture like to design false collars.

In addition, a collar does not take place: a line of lipstick, your collar just out of your handbag and you have a haughty port, fashion or design!

Again, there are removable collars with great neck effects!

Contrary to what you think, the removable collar is an easy to wear coquetry. Moreover, it inspires the most beautiful creations: with knots, without knot, pearls, rhinestones, embroidery or adorned with buttons like Viktor & Rolf. If you feel like it, do not hesitate to customize it yourself!

Casual trendy collar-collars

trendy leather false collar
From top to bottom and from left to right:
Marni faux leather collar – SAM faux leather collars from ATTELIER by BUTTONS PARADISE – Black gray removable collar Marni via Moda Operandi

Finally and among my favorites, here is SAM! A fake collar with a minimalist and refined style. This collar is lined with Alcantara, you know, this material as soft as a baby’s skin. Entirely handmade, in soft or semi-soft leathers sewn with silk thread, SAM gives your figure, character and balance. A neck accessory to wear without moderation for a strong and colorful style!

In summary, if you are looking like me for exclusivity, go for it and come see me to try it! Or go to my e-shop!

When hats take the lead!

You will have, for the beginning of the spring, the clear but well framed face! And what is also top is that the hat takes the lead of next spring-summer trends!

So, to your hats and accessories for a terribly feminine fashion, so beautiful beautiful beautiful!

Above all, how to choose your hat?

To choose your hat, you have different options! Do you have a small head or a long face? So you can afford almost all of the capelin through the panama fashionistas and people.

Do you have a round head like an orange? Try hats with structured shapes and bold curves! They should make you happy and especially the trilby or the fedora!

Finally, if your face morphology is more square, you hats bells, berets and other pretty round shapes like a melon.

We love all hats!

Because it’s an accessory straight from the men’s wardrobe! Because it gives a charm to our outfits. A hat is like a cuff. It has this unique twist that asserts a look and gives a style in almost any situation.

In addition to asserting a style, the hat is customizable in a snap: a few buttons or a nice design solo button: it will be unique! Or if you’re a fan of scarves, you can match your capeline or panama to your outfit of the day!

My loves, Italian style!

Like you, after the snow, I want colors and sunshine. But do not believe that I do not like white! White is the new black and Colors are my Crayola felt-tip pens!!! So this week, to bring spring, I invite you to discover my Italian loves, MY Italy: its treasures, its secret addresses, its fashion or jewelry designers, and above all, its colors! Perché si, amo l’Italia!

Secret love? Here is Apulia

Even more beautiful than northern Apulia, those of the South are secret and wild. Do you like baroque style and when the walls speak to you?!! See you in Lecce.

Lecce, Duomo piazza and streets – Showroom l’jo Design – Dolce Gabana

In addition, you will find in Lecce an amazing fashion designer … Antonio Franco (Atika, Via Rubichi 13). Antonio creates beautiful clothes inspired from the 1920s to 1960s. His fabrics and couture are sublime. Not to mention his vintage accessories: jewels, necklaces and bracelets! And if you are a fan of Italian designers, Lecce organizes itsFashion Week every year!

italian secret destination gallipoli
Gallipoli, small streets, palazzo and beach – Kaftan by Tulsi

Otherwise, if you are more interested by the big blue, then head to Gallipoli! It is a surprising little La Rochelle (a famous French walled city surrounded by the sea): turquoise water, small beaches, terraces galore as simple as nice for a morning ristreto coffee or a Spritz while admiring the sunset on the sea!

City love? Weekend in Rome

Because Rome is THE Dolce Vita, Fellini, romance and Italian love!

italian loves fashion rome
Rome atmopsheres – La Dolce Vita by Fellini – Fendi Fondation – Audrey Hepburn Vogue Italia – Castel Saint Angelo – Fountain of Trévise – Street Style – Piazza di Santa Maria, Trastevere

And then, there are two things I suggest you do in Rome.

1. Eat a Tartuffo Pizza Navonna, if you are greedy like me … I love the chocolate of this frozen truffle!!!

2. Have a picnic on the outskirts of the Castel Sant’Angelo with a Ciabatta e prosciutto crudo sandwich. Also, if you want to combine fashion and design, go to the Fendi Foundation: a temple of fashion and neoclassical architecture!

Fashionista? My love of fashion designers

italian haute couture
From left to right, top to down: Armani SS18 – Marni RTW 2018 – Dolce Gabbana – Scarf Versace SS 2018 – Pink coat Prada Spring 2018

What I love above all in the Italian style is this love for excess! But it is not counting also on the detail of the fashion accessories: oversize bags, big sequins on pink summer coat for Prada or the red hearts of Dolce Gabbana. In Italy, one dares the color and the contrast and I adore it! A true Dolce Vita love!

italian style napolitean fashion dolce vita
Dolce Vita leather cuff ATTELIER by BUTTONS PARADISE

And for a touch of ultimate refinement, here is THE Dolce Vita. A two-tone leather cuff closed with two collar buttons. Some discreet and elegant collar buttons and soft leathers. But why the Dolce Vita? Simply because this limited edition is inspired by the Neapolitan cuff! Look at a James Bond movie and you will understand that 007 is wearing Neapolitan cuff shirts like this picture, in the bottom left, in Dr. No’s famous James Bond.

In short, I hope you have guessed that my heart beats for Italy!

Above all, feel free to share this post if you liked it with your friends! And if you write to me, I will gladly give you all my addresses and tips on my loves in Italian style! And also, I will tell you about my passion for fashion accessories!

Women jewelry: No limit!

Street style, haute couture, ready-to-wear: in terms of jewelry and feminine accessories, the field of creativity is unlimited!

But by the way, if everything is allowed, where to start? Original necklaces, bracelets or designer cuffs? Trendy bags, oversized belts or atypical hats? Make your own choice!

So, welcome to a jumble of design to inspire, adapt, personalize and feel beautiful and stylish everyday.

Unusual design necklaces

First, the necklace. Here, it is unusual and above all functional. Necklace bag in the manner of Hermes or Tods or keychain, there is something for all genres! We also notice the original necklace effect adorned with a bakelite buckle the baggycol because it looks like a bag except that he is not!

fashion jewelry design necklaces

Pearl cuffs

As much as the necklace, there is an accessory that dresses all by itself: the jewel cuff. And Chanel to give the tempo is never wrong. But I admit to having a weakness for a stylish jewel such as a black pearl cuff or an end of the sleeve with beautiful black buttons.

fashion jewelry design bracelets
From left to right and top to down

Original jewelry loops

So here, look good! I love these fashion looks, street style trends. Headlines loops. Denim jeans, a jacket and a cuff on the wrist or ankle? You are dressed in every sense of the word!

Belts: they are anything but accessory!

But yes, there is beauty accessory sometimes underrated: the belt. It structures your line. In addition, the belt is a jewel! Although oversized, she can be more discreet and ultra-feminine! In summary, the women’s belt is all outfits!

Dress code 2018: personalize your shoes!

[BREAKING NEWS] In 2018, designers excel at creativity to dress our feet. And that gave me a lot of ideas to personalize our shoes!

In addition, I offer a mini to do it yourself (DIY) with tutorial photos! But just before, discover all the trends of next spring to be at the top of your shoes!

Shoe personalization

Transparency of small steps 

First, here is the spring style that reveals the femininity of our feet: stilettos or derbies with heels like Armani. Our extreme part of the body reveals itself subtly!

Allure Delicate Shoes 

Then, and more surprising: alluring shoes that affirm your look with originality and audacity! I love these unprecedented details of Dolce & Gabana’s pendulum sandal.

Oversized pompoms

Woman shoe personalization

And then the spring is sensual in leather pompoms or soft faux fur. Again, almost everything is allowed! It’s fun and stylish, from the shoe to the sneakers! Also, do not hesitate to accessorize your shoes in hype or vintage charms! We all have a designer soul, right?

Buckles on the feet or strapped shoes? 

Shoes Customization
From left to right and top to down: Miu Miu Spring resort 2018 – Jil Sander – Prada

Undoubtedly, a real favorite. I am a stylist and craftsman in buckles and sewing buttons. And I like to diversify their use … So when it comes to transforming the use of a buckle, I always say YES. And frankly, it’s an unstoppable fashion trick. This style is casual chic to the tips of the nails (or toes!)

Very buttoned shoes

At the same time, designing a women’s shoe model is not easy. It requires as much technique as excellence in the materials used … for perfect comfort. But here, I crack! A little detail like a jewel sewing button sewn over linen and voila: the shoe is unique! 

Beautiful buttons, pretty stylish feet 

customize pimp fashion shoes
Miu Miu shoes – Buttons by BUTTONS PARADISE

So get started! Because it’s really easy to personalize your own shoes. Yes really! A customer brought me her Miu Miu shoes. One of his big leather knots that dressed his shoes is gone. She chose two big vintage sewing buttons to replace them! But why not you?

Once again, it is an easy job of one hour maximum. And a great result! The three pre-requisites?

1. Have a large needle with a sturdy but thin tip to pierce the leather (or a cookie cutter for less than 15 euros)

2. A linen thread also called Chinese thread or else a thick nylon and silk thread that will be very chic and satiny

3. Finally, sew your button with a point without the need of a knot. Only two or three points are enough! A knotless sewing will be just as strong or more. And especially it will be more comfortable to wear (zero gene because no knot on the back of your shoe!)

And if you have a doubt, I will advise you with pleasure!

Here comes the couture button!

From all smart fashion accessories, the couture button is my favorite … !

For once, this week, there is no question of women’s cloakroom! Because of all the subjects, it’s the button that I prefer (my nod to a French singer, Caroline Loeb)

So this is it. I decided, if you will, to take you on a journey to discover the 1001 materials of the button. But above all, little glossary on THE button!

Are you ‘PPOC*’??! (to be pronounced “POK”)

It is used daily. And yet, the couture button is probably from all our accessories, the one that has a thousand and one tricks and secrets. Do not sociologists call it the ‘PPOC’? Because yes, the PPOC qualifies the couture button of the *Smallest Cultural Object, the S.C.O.! In French: ‘Plus Petit Objet Culturel‘.  Simply because the sewing button is one of our most common clothing uses.

And I do not resist sharing this quote from an Austrian architect, keen on fashion and style.

If nothing else survives of a vanished people but a single button, it would be possible for me, from the form of this button, to deduce the dress and customs of this people, their habits, their art and his intellectual life. So big is the importance of this button. I wanted to underline the relationship between the inner culture and the external culture. The way is as follows: God creates the artist, the artist creates the time, the time creates the craftsman, the craftsman creates the button.

Adolf Loos, Words in the Void, 1897-1900, Ivrea, 1994

Nice introduction, isn’t it?

P as polyester or R as resin?

Here, I grant you: I love all these divine resins!

Personalize outfit couture button
Rond large design resin button Silk by BUTTONS PARADISE

Polyester is, of all the resins, the most widespread in couture buttons since the second half of the 20th century with a peak in the 70’s.

fashion button couture
Galalith ribbon couture buttons by BUTTONS PARADISE

But there is resin and resin! Because while polyester is a commonly used plastic resin, there are many more sophisticated ones; including a beautiful resin from milk, more unknown: Galalith or mineral ivory. And I am passionate about Galalith! It is refined, white in the natural (that is to say before being tinted). It is especially as hard and resistant as ivory and of course, it has nothing to do with real ivory. (Wink to Stella ™)

Galalith is milk-white because it comes from a protein with the nice name of casein. And we consume a lot of it without knowing it because it comes from milk!

The mother of pearl

In the 19th century, France is the cradle of mother-of-pearl in the world. The city of Meru was the fief of all manufactures!

pearl couture buttons pimp outfit
Sweet mother of pearl couture buttons by BUTTONS PARADISE

Mother-of-pearl is the star of couture buttons and jewels. It’s actually an amazing combination of carbon and calcium! And contrary to what we can believe, mother of pearl is organic and non-mineral. And when you caress her … what an intimate sweetness!

What is also fascinating with the mother of pearl, besides its beautiful iridescent reflections, is that there are all kinds! These couture buttons are perfect to fashion a dress or, as for coat buttons, the icons of your outfit!

Gray mother-of-pearl, from pearl oyster but also abalone, a seashell found on our atlantic beaches, there are many sorts and all of them make statement

White mother-of-pearl is often considered the purest and most expensive.

My mother of pearl couture buttons but also my original design buckles that fashion my bracelets and leather cuffs are 90% of French origin: mainly Tahiti and also some gray nacres from Japan.

Precious wood

Or less precious … ! All the wood species are the muses of the couture button, object of sculpture! I get carried away for the good cause …

The wood inspires and it imposes itself as master! Master of the couture knob in raffia, cedar, olive, beech or walnut from our French countries. Only the oak resists him because too hard considering the size of his friend button.

All the woods are beautiful! And the button is KING. If it is rosewood, ebony or Macassar, then you are adorned with subtle jewelry.

And anyway …

This is the button I prefer! And if you like this piece of jewelry like me, then go here! The glossary of the button and its materials: plural resins, horn, rock crystal, Sèvres porcelain …

Customize a black coat: 5 ideas that change everything!

Want to blow a breath of fresh air on your black coat? Want to bring him the magic touch, the big shot of brilliance it deserves? Why not customize it to make it unique and irresistible?

To offer originality, elegance and good mood to your garment, here are 5 ideas to customize your black coat with sewing or trendy buttons, fabric, embroidery or sequins.

It’s up to you to choose the perfect accessory, the one that will give back to your trusty coat your warmth all winter long. So here is a little overview of the possibilities available to you!

Customize a black coat by embroidering mother of pearl buttons

The advantage with the black is that it marries almost everything. However, do not go in all directions. So opt for a chic and luminous touch, personalize your black coat with pearl or white buttons, real must have of the season. Stars, clovers, big round buttons or sparkling sequins, do not be afraid, dare. And be baroque and chic!

Customize a black coat with disco or hype metal buttons

Here, to bring a note of gaiety! Counterbalance the sometimes excessive sobriety of your black overcoat. And why not sew some fun and hype sewing buttons? Again, play the chic trendy card. Also, take inspiration from the colors of the moment: a deep blue and light gray pulling or an electric blue for these black coats from the super successful brand. Simple, effective and design!

And for a more disco note, choose a silver colored button series with blue sequins. You can also opt for pretty sewing buttons in shades of old bronze or old silver tone with an ethnic style to give e perfect contrast!

How to bring a graphic touch to your coat? By making online embroidery at the bottom of the garment or by sewing ribbons or strips of white fabric alternating with the black of the coat.

Very trendy this season, the black & white has the advantage to marry with different looks. And for an equally graphic result, use vintage and geometric buttons as shown below with the black and white stitch button pattern.

Replace the coat buttons by focusing on the contrast

Besides, if you want to change the buttons of your coat, choose, as indicated above, for graphic models. Play the black and white card! And to stay trendy, choose geometric buttons with bright colors! Look at these conical bleu and grey buttons looking like a Matisse painting! So original to look your black coat!
