Our Story

We are three friends who decided to combine our skills to create the Eclipse an original fashion accessory, which can be worn on both men and women’s clothing.

One late afternoon, François was getting ready for a little “artsy” evening. Standing in front of his full-length mirror wearing jeans, a white shirt and a black jacket, he thought there was something missing in his outfit.

He imagined a simple accessory, without a tie, pins, bow-tie or a scarf that could transform his look in an instant.
A little something that could make it stand out in all discretion.
And suddenly, he saw the light!

He decided to create the Eclipse, a trendy button cover. He asked Christophe and Valerie to join him on his adventure by creating his company, Button Spirit, and a new fashion accessory that was both diverse and accessible.

From our friendship and our shared values for art, objects and fashion, was born the Button Spirit brand. With a first collection consisting of
4 lines and 24 Eclipses we offer our creations in exclusive models inspired by the world of art and fashion.
We are eager to serve those who want to put a twist on their shirt or blouse by showing off their personality and mood of the moment.
