Boutons de manchette asymétrique en nacre et argent

Day asymmetrical

First and foremost, it is a difference in size that subtly alters perception, appearance, wear, that commands attention. On one wrist, an 18 mm cabochon, on the other the traditional 11 mm version.

This series is also inspired by the Landscape concept, in which disconnect and difference stand out on all sides, as naturally and harmoniously as can be.

Asymmetry as a way of relating to the world.

Boutons de manchette

A more recent invention than the button (dated around 1700), the cufflink became popular in the 19th century. The first cufflinks were made with rigid links (as opposed to chain or toggle links) and Samuel Gassmann chose this ridge link as the founding characteristic of his brand, re-establishing the original process of attaching shirtsleeves. 

Lois somptuaires

A dress code of yester year, sumptuary laws symbolically marked the principles of the wardrobe. Certain outfits were reserved for specific social groups: regulations controlled the length of trains and the quantity of ribbons, embroidery and braids subjecting the newly moneyed bourgeoisie to the strictest moderation and preserving the noble classes superiority.
