The coat: a garment like no other

Caban, trench coat, overcoat, frock coat, duffle coat, bathrobe … More than an accessory, the coat hides and protects us. So this winter, do you wear a coat or is it the coat that carries you?

Coat styles

If the peacoat or duffle coat is your second skin, there is a good chance that you like the classic, the order (because of the double buttoning of the pea coats and the Brandenburg duffle-coat!) Or that you are a girl sailor or descendant of pirates. Do you know that the pirates borrowed this term from the Arabs who called Qabà the garment above? But perhaps your leitmotiv is above all to be comfortable in a straight cut?

Caban coat style

In contrast to straight cuts, you lean more for a ‘soft envelope’ way frocking? ‘Cintré‘ meaning waisted ‘par excellence‘ and long, even very long, the frock coat is a link between sophistication and enhancement of our feminine forms. The frock coat also evokes a pretty propensity for nostalgia and an ode to femininity. Star of the 80s, she is back in great shape sculptural coat!

For the sake of convenience and because you are an earthling, the Canadian (French Canadian naming!) or Duvet is your favorite overcoat? Never mind ! She is warm and comfortable. And you are certainly more pragmatic, a true epicurean in the sense of enjoying the warmth and well-being of the long version down jacket!

Finally, do you wear the bathrobe coat? Indispensable, timeless, it embodies fluidity. Moreover, I call it agile clothing and I am a fan of this look. With him, you live as you are! The bathrobe style is for all occasions: in evening version dressed on tuxedo or little black dress, or in office mode or to take out your dog adored in the early morning!

Black, beige or colored coat?

Besides the cut, the color matters. A good basic is also our three-quarter black or camel. We all have one! And what’s fun with a black overcoat in particular is to accessorize it or personalize it with buttons of bright clothing.

It is quite possible also for a more sophisticated way Like Boys or minimalist fashion, to associate mother-of-pearl buttons that will be real jewels on the black or plain of your dress. Conversely, if your fetish coat is yellow or blue, play this year especially haute couture buttons or black design buttons for a unique look like Marc Jacobs.

United or patterned?

So this winter, all styles are allowed: tweed coats and big tiles like Sherlock Homes or Mango! But also, floral caban if you want to get closer to Italy or Brazil and create a virtual heat effect in the cold.

To wear long or short?

As you like! If you are rather consensual, the three-quarter is also a good must. But if you prefer elegance and you are big (!), Then do not hesitate to wear your coat at mid-calf even just above the ankle.

Natural or synthetic fibers?

faux fur coat style

In cold weather, wool is de rigueur! Or, fashionista or fan of daily cocooning? Straight on the faux fur as soft as cashmere! And do not deprive yourself of patterns imitating the coat of our friends the felines and our friends the animals in general for an ethical and responsible fashion!

New or vintage?

Because we are all faithful to one or two overcoats that we want to wear at any price from year to year! But what if his fabric or seams become fragile with the seasons? Appointment in second hand shops that are more and more numerous and selective in their choice of clothing. And if you prefer a coat firsthand without making the choice of haute couture or a designer coat, plan a quick shopping session on Google and then shop!

Coat buttons … Essential jewelry!

But above all, always make sure that the accessories of your coat are beautiful and unique. It is not a question of brand but of quality for a style just for you. In addition, whether it’s the buttons on your coat or the jewelry you’ll wear to give it depth, it’s a whole. In summary, designer jewelry or haute couture buttons or why not vintage buttons will be your best allies! That is said!

Buttoned clothing review

Never has the button of clothing been so successful since the 80s! So for this this winter, here is a fashion review to customize your looks and adopt an ultra feminine style!

Coat dresses

First, why not consider a simple effect with a touch of contrast like the coat dress? Above all, a classic of clothing simply enhanced by two large white buttons.

First and foremost considered a basic outfit, the coat dress also knows how to be very elegant. Like this sober white dress but which, enhanced by a design button and a pair of high boots has a crazy style.

Revisited coats

Because each season has its codes or rather its hobby in terms of overcoats! Because yes, look well these short or long coats, woolly or silky wherever you are! Indeed, there is a constant for a dress code at the top: the buttons of coats.

So if you have just acquired the coat of your dreams, and that for some reason x or y, its buttons seem bland, opt for some original buttons!

If only as Mansur Gavriel, you are faithful to the tone on tone for a soft style in color.

Trimmed jackets and clothes

On the contrary and if you prefer an effect of sophistication, Chloe provides us dresses and suits jacket-pants adorned with beautiful shades of blue or brown. And it’s not bad at all I find …

Because for this review of style, Liu Jo plays the key of personalization in the manner of our favorite clothes. But beware, it’s always done in extreme chic fashion. Because we love this river of rhinestone buttons on tweed with a touch of leather!

Shirts or cardigans with buttons

But still no shirt buttons! In reality, it is a question of fashion buttons. In short, I admit that Zara helped me because like Lemaire, Prada or Dolce Gabbana, their autumn-winter collection is adorned with sewing buttons.

As a conclusion, bold style always pays. All in all, these two examples are very far but preferred. In a word, dare the contrast of colors and transparent buttons on a beautiful pencil skirt.

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 ! Original buttons, design or designer buttons, even the fancy buttons are jewelry and made in France or sometimes come from Japan when mother of pearl becomes queen!

But in fact, what is a jewelry button?

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!

Accessorize a summer coat?

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.

Because the Bee is made of Galalith resin, a natural creamy white like its resin that comes from milk!

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.

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

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 …

Wood raffia couture buttons spiral by BUTTONS PARADISE

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!

Create a game of stripes at the bottom of the coat

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!

Finally, play here the card of originality. Customize your black coat by letting the artist in you express yourself. And why not sew on the sleeve of the coat a fabric representing a work of your favorite painter? Or, add touches of color by sewing buttons of different shades and shapes. Above all break the codes and dare!

Christmas or the list of all our desires

Let’s go crazy, Christmas is coming! I do not know about you, but I’m waiting for the snow (and not the deluge!). So let’s have fun: let’s go out, let’s move and let’s all take advantage of the cold weather to be beautiful!

And with this white come all the colors of which we dream and which marry so well. Let’s go for the list of all our desires and whishes: white is colorful!

Christmas landmark

Every year, Christmas is THE time of all landmarks. So, forget our ‘every day’ because desire is selfish. And to have fun is often to please others. For the holidays, be unique! #lovechristmasforever

‘Coup de coeur’ gifts

Often, as you most certainly, I act by heart stroke. It’s like a desire! And there, without hesitation, I tend to favor handmade and exceptional craftsmanship. Unusual decorative objects, astute or daring fashion accessories, vintage or contemporary. I do not care as long as they touch me!!!
Like the cushions of Maison Popineau, a brand Made in France and eco-friendly … like BUTTONS PARADISE. Thank you Dear Aurore for this original palette. I love your cushions, and your alphabet. And I can not resist thinking BUTTONS when I see them! A treat buttons design or jewelry to give them an exquisite personal touch! Besides, why not give yourself original buttons or to your loved ones?
Christmas shopping and all our desires
Hat, Zara – Removable Leather Franges, Raoulle
Other gift ideas winks with Zara and his special hat for rebel head! Do not hesitate, for your Christmas meal, to adopt a casual chic look with the fringes of Raoulle, a brand from the Western part of France called Nantes that climbs and pimps your pumps. Trivially, yes, but so funny. And above all, it’s their signature! But above all, it is a genius idea to dress your tennis shoes! A gift that will be noticed suddenly and very much appreciated because so much hype!

More reasonable are the candles like those at Casa. Sweet price but “this candle lights up your day”! But if you are looking for the rare and the new, then vote for the candles of my friend Christelle with the subtle scents of the vineyards. A great vintage made in France. And its homemade candles compete resolutely scents with those of Dyptique, another sure value if you like the fig tree and sun!

Party accessories

At Christmas, shine colors to dazzle the white or on the contrary, accessorize the black of your dress! And to pimp your look, a trendy accessory or a few buttons are enough!

Best List of christmas shopping and desires
Removable leather franges, Raoulle – Red Vinyle Leather Cuff Eden, ATTELIER by BUTTONS PARADISE
A red vinyl Eden leather cuff with a metal buckle, “original seventies”. Or why not a Cravate, this necklace short to wear like a Lavallière, the hit of this winter?

Do you like challenges?

I find challenges very stimulating, don’t you?

Today, I take you behind the scenes of a contest, an exciting adventure in the creation of [trendy] buttons and [fashion jewelry] accessories designed for unique and special women: YOU!!! 💕

So let’s go!  Let’s discover the Future 2017 Paris Designer contest.

One night, looking at my emails of the day

I read 3 words that made an echo: “Designer of the Future”, a real springboard for entrepreneurial women. A network that propels women entrepreneurship via strong and clear proposals, at least from my point of view, when we talk about know-how, boldness, innovation or responsible economy.

creative designer of the year Paris

One day, the file of the application arrives

But attention to not rely on the sweetness of this title! Because entrepreneurs = multitasking …but THIS IS NOT THE POINT to tell you about my hectic days, I love them so much! They are just exciting and full of surprising encounters: first, with artisans to conceive and fabric. No VIP treatment here, not at all, just clear and straight comments with lots of respect for the work of each other above all.

Then, we discuss about our passions in common with exquisite and divine clients. And after some weeks: surprise! A second mail with the magic words arrives “Designer of the Future”, including an attachment and a deadline. Then you start sweating and your heart accelerates in a positive way. This first contest, I’m going to do it for BUTTONS PARADISE!

A whole program

I don’t know about you, but when I fill a form or a questionnaire, I like to be sure to understand everything before answering. And I keep asking myself, ‘Did I manage to share and resume the DNA of my brand’? ‘Did I say enough’? And when you even realize at D-72 hours from the deadline, you ended it. Yes, worst than a Hitchcock film! After hours of proofreading by friends, my loves, my file is ready to be sent!

We all have a creative soul!

Which of us have never dreamed of becoming a designer? However, it is somehow the myth of Sisyphus, when your life is devoted to design and create: we do, we undo, we redo. But above all, we love it all. And, yes I love it! Because working with his hands is simply crazy, it’s even magic!

CREATE

It is above all to please yourself and women. An everyday luxury! Moreover, if you follow me on Instagram you may have remembered these important words: luxury is not about means; Luxury is made of simple and beautiful things to OUR eyes. I say it often because I believe it all! Did not Sonia Rykiel say that luxury and elegance are above all a question of attitude? Well done dear Sonia, I love you forever !!!

NICE ENCOUNTERS

So this is it! When we create and we decided to devote ourselves to the staging of sewing buttons and fashion accessories, we of course have very nice encounters; women, men … and even dogs! (Pets welcome at the workshop-showroom, reptiles abstain!). In short, nice to meet you all!
And then there are beautiful encounters that lead to collaborations, as with Elsa. Elsa Muse is a blogger I particularly like, for creativity coupled with a passion for fashion … that we share together, of course!

DIY

…. And then I love DIY and even more up-cycling. So divert the use of the button or a belt buckle to turn them into jewelry accessories to assert your style, what happiness! And even more if your job (i.e. jewelry designer) contributes to the launch of the new BoxDIYbyElsaMuse on the French market!

In fact, if the desire to become creative comes to you, for an evening or a weekend, to make you a coat, a skirt … or why not, a brooch or an adornment for your shoes, so express yourself!
