Happy 4th everyone! In honor of Independence Day I spent last night constructing fireworks out of my mom’s spare Chanel buttons. She keeps her entire back stock in a baggie and cherishes them nearly as much as the garments they come from. Why, you might ask? Few people know that just as Chanel reinvents ready-to-wear each season, they also entirely redesign their trademark buttons. No button is ever repeated. Meaning, she isn’t all that crazy for keeping such a close watch on her collection. I’m hoping one day to fashion a necklace out of them. Until then, I’ll just have to admire their intricacies from a far. Can’t wait to see what little beauties adorn each jacket in Karl’s futuristic, Marie Antoinette Cruise 13′ collection. I look forward to watching fireworks tonight and imaging that each falling light is a different, new button design.
