Balenciaga incorporated a modern take on western collar tips into their Spring 2011 Collection. These collar tips with make any simple collared shirt look more fashionable and fierce. Learn how to get this look with the DIY tutorial below.
– 2 brass decorative corners
– 2 clutch pin backs
– 2 pieces of thick fabric scrap (i.e. felt or wool)
– cutting pliers
– super glue
Start by drawing 2 lines at 45 degree angles on the inside of each brass corner, creating a small wedge. Use the cutting pliers to cut out the wedges.
Sandwich a brass corner between two pieces of fabric. The fabric will prevent the brass from being dented or nicked by the hammer. Lightly tap the hammer, flatting the edges inwards.
Once you’ve flattened your corners, super glue a clutch pin back to each backside.
Let it dry.
Attach your new collar tips to any shirt!
And Voila- You’re Done!
