Clip-on fashion: Studio Swine is on the button

03.03.2013 Architecture : Silver : Buttons

London – London-based Studio Swine has created Button Clips, a selection of clip-on buttons for men inspired by industrial architecture and modern buildings.

The gold and silver-plated buttons mirror patterns and textures found in industrial spaces and modern buildings. They come in a range of shapes, including a triangle, star, square gem and perforated gem, and with bold and regimented patterns to create a wearable architecture. The buttons clip onto ordinary buttons, enabling men to customise their clothes.

‘The boundaries of architecture are shifting all the time. It’s fun to imagine how a wearable architecture might look and function,’ a spokesperson from Studio Swine tells LS:N Global. ‘We felt men’s accessories were limited, so we wanted to create a clothes accessory that was accessible and easy to customise your clothes to create a special piece.’

The buttons are now featured on crowdfunding site Kickstarter.

Designers are moving away from fabrics and patterns traditionally associated with clothing. For more, read our Industrial Futurism design direction.
