Unauthorised Burberry Buttons

Design: Tobias Wong
Client: Self Manufacture
Date: 1999

Tobias handed out hundreds of these pirate Burberry plaid pins at events around NYC. “A year later, in spring 2000, Burberry themselves caught sight of this ’street trend’ and adapted them into their advertising campaign. The buttons were visible in fashion magazines, billboards, and catalogs - a knock-off of a knock-off”.
-Todd Falkowsky
