This year’s Valentines collection theme choice seemed obvious, Barbiecore! Pink and Valentines just go together and even I feel swept away in the buzz of the Barbie film. However, I couldn’t shake my lack of enthusiasm for the Barbie brand as a whole and what really interested me boiled down to the feminine construction.
So this year our collection is veered towards celebrating Galentines day and all that it represents. Strong connections, deep friendship and how we uplift each other.
We have four new buttons set to move you through the end of Autumn and to the start of Spring. With new sizes ready for overshirts, jackets and (of course) dresses. In colours to match the trepidation of Autumn before the explosion of colour.
Now for the collection……
Named for the idol that is, Barbie.
The swirl of Cream and Pinks help match this button with a range of Pink from Baby Pink to Fuschia. This button also pops against Whites and Creams. I personally like Pink and Brown together and I would put these buttons together with Fawn tones for a 70’s vibe.
Made for dopamine dressing and embracing all that is cute and girly. In sizes 15mm and 25mm.
Flashes of metallic Blue and Green on a smokey Grey background. The Sublime buttons calls for sparkle and a bit of the feminine. Blue and green are always an exceeding combination and this cloudy button looks great against Grey’s, Blue’s and Greens with a colder colouring. In sizes 10mm and 20mm.
Deep Crimson with flecks of Pink, Purple, Green and Blue these buttons are for those who love the detail. The many colours of this button make it perfect for pairing with a print, you want to pick a colour out from. This button is great with Reds that have a Blue undertone, Pinks, Creams, Purples. Beloved has true versatility.
Beloved refers to the Toni Morrison book of the same name. In size 15mm.
With stark black splashes against a soft brown and a lilac, this button is for those going into (or are fully) into their Purple Era.
The Beguiled button looks stunning against all shades of Purple. A button that can hold its own due to its stark nature but also surprisingly warm. We’ve also paired this button with Browns and dark colours and the Beguilded button really brings something a bit something special.
THE perfect buttons for a lighter coat for the changing season. In sizes 10mm, 15mm and 20mm.
Hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know the collection a bit more and it’s perhaps inspired some sewing!
Best (pigeon) Wishes,
