Buttons, buttons and more buttons


If you have a fear of buttons, look away now. If you love buttons, rejoice… for they are finding their way into every corner of the high street. Imagine our delight at finding this sparkling button bedecked mannequin in one of our favourite High Street fashion stores…

Our sources tell us that someone at head office had the job of gluing on all the buttons – all in a day’s work for those at River Island! As we speak we’re trying to locate other stores with the button mannequins, so let us know if you’ve found one near you, then everyone can enjoy it. This mannequin takes pride of place in the Oxford branch of River Island.

Quite apart from the mannequins, this trio of rings also caught our eye – race you to the shop for them… Button, bird and panther ring available from River Island. At £7 for the set, they’ll be flying out the store. For jewellery with a crafty touch River Island’s cute earrings and necklaces with buttons are also on our radar.
