XVI collaborates with the house Legeron, which has been specializing for over a century in the confection of artificial flowers, to manufacture a series of buttonholes out of men's shirt fabric. Each buttonhole is unique, entirely made by hand and delivered with a numbered certificate that guarantees the origin of manufacture. The series comes in three models: Orchid, Bouquet and Rose.
