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.

Jewelry Buttons from 2016 Spring-Summer Couture fashion shows

What are the jewelry buttons from the latest spring/summer 2016 couture shows? Eclecticisms seems to be the key word:
– Some rather classic collections for Chanel and Dice Kayek;

– Cubist and graphics couture lines for Victor & Rolf while Dior is straight and wise but yet so stylish. And among these renowned fashion names, all are using jewelry buttons or haute couture buttons!

– Nevertheless, I still remain a fan of the 2015 summer collection from JW Anderson (yes, 2015) who matches haute couture buttons of different sizes to give an aesthetic look and style to outfits like no one. That is said!

Going back to 2016 spring wear, Proenza Schouler plays with contrasts and shapes and uses simple black buttons and the result is absolutely amazing!

I also have a crush for the staging of one haute couture button made by Armani for its 2016 summer show! This single button must be a jewel: it is THE detail of the outfit, a sober slim black button that catches your eye and makes breakneck speed lines of the clothing: pizzazz!

And if we had to celebrate a jubilant fashion, the award would most certainly goes to Dolce & Gabbana for their 2016 spring/summer ready to wear collection: it is colorful, cheerful and even bold and it is surely high in buttons!!!

Original Haute Couture Buttons

After the launch of its French e-store last October, BUTTONS PARADISE opens up new markets to welcome international clients and fashionistas with an e-shop in English: pizzazz !!! I like by the way this expression from the famous and talented Diana Vreeland (Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue). As you may know, Diana V. often ended her sentences with this happy and resonant word: for me and as I am French, pizzazz simply means great. And yes, it’s great!

Some of you may wonder why BUTTONS PARADISE chooses XXL button sizes to represent what is traditionally the smallest fashion accessory? Simply because big or extra large buttons give a specific and unique touch to your clothing, especially coats. And this winter as you know, the ultra-chic trend is towards oversized coats like those from the eighties and the nineties! We just LOVE them.
Just because this winter in buttons will also be full of luxury and refinement with haute couture buttons collection, the XXL urban-ethnic button will be ideal to give an ultimate look to your coats and hats.

The urban-ethnic button is also the centerpiece of a unique and original necklace: the Canoes necklace, a BUTTONS PARADISE limited edition, so smart.
