That small details may have a big impact, has been proven over the last seasons by several fashion trends: sleeves have been placed into the focus due to length and width, patterns have become even more compelling and applications still more flamboyant. That’s why button manufacturer may look forward to a powerful season: special buttons are THE additional key piece of the moment!

At KNOPF SCHÄFER classic meets function and modern street styling. Sporty elegance is supported by metal accessories and functional components. The trend towards relaxed tailoring is evolving into modern and summery looks with a boldness for colorful accents. The mission is to offer accessories that support the mixture of styles. There are classic style buttons made from real horn, as well as real corozo and also mother-of-pearl materials. There are new and exciting finishes as well as new color details.

KNOPF & KNOPF International explore how the 1990s have left their mark: Pure shapes, wild patterns, technical inspired materials. Buttons out of the ordinary are the must have of the season: matt metal buttons as well as transparent buttons underplayed with glitter or patterns. Gentle floral designs on metallic buttons also match perfectly on rough looking items. Very artful are mother of pearl buttons with a hint of color on the holes in a handcrafted look.

The trend at CADICA is towards more tailoring which is offset by ultra-feminine colours such as soft peach and skin tones, as well as fresh green nuances and is thus interpreted sensually. This colouring also finds its way into menswear and thus supports the idea of gender irrelevance. The eye-catching colors that have emerged in recent seasons as a result of the rapidly increasing trend in workwear and use in safety clothing are spreading across all collections. Starting with yellow, followed by orange and neo mint. In contrast, fabrics and accessories made of natural materials take the trend to a new interpretation of rusticity. Organic forms and seemingly untreated surfaces support the demand for a modern natural appearance.

Classic looks are up and coming. The formal is constantly being rethought and combined. From chic to urban, from relaxed to innovative, classic looks have an enormous range of expressiveness in fashion. UNION KNOPF Menswear presents new trendsetting developments and fresh combination solutions in buttons and trims for Spring/Summer 2020. For example, real horn is gaining freshness in mix & match, mother-of-pearl looks show technical sophistication and transparent buttons update workwear chic.
