– Amsterdam engineer René Cortin is pleased to introduce a unique design in cufflinks that takes fashion accessories to a whole new level.
The product, which is internationally-patented, offers unparalleled innovation in cufflinks. Cortin’s patent encompasses three components: a cufflink, a rigid or flexible element (such as a chain or string) and a sleeve button. These components are ingeniously blended together to create a sleeve fastener that is novel, elegant and practical to wear. “The front part of the cufflink shuts the cuff of the shirt,” Cortin explained. “The rear part shuts the sleeve (actually it supersedes the common button between the elbow and the cuff), and the front part is linked to the rear part by either a flexible or a rigid element.”
Cufflinks have been around for years, but their basic shape and utility have undergone very few changes. The design of cufflinks varies widely, with the simplest type consisting of a short post or chain connecting two disc-shaped parts. However, Cortin’s new-generation cufflinks represent a marked evolution of the product for men and women. “Designers from all horizons and cultures have added their personal touch in many ways, but it’s the first time this accessory benefits from a real evolution,” Cortin said. “Its unique enhancement in terms of functionality and style is a real leap forward.”
Cufflinks are the perfect complement to almost any outfit, whether it’s formal or more casual wear. Cortin’s cufflinks are designed to appeal to the discerning tastes of high-end consumers. They’re accented by rich gold and silver tones, gently brushed metal and striking engravings that catch the eye. “They will fit the elite and elegant people who care about their appearance and style,” he said. “I am expecting luxury brands to be interested.”
The fashionable cufflinks devised by Cortin are the result of long months of brainstorming and hard work. Cortin—who holds an M.B.A. in International Business from the prestigious Birmingham Business School (University of Birmingham, UK)—is an entrepreneur with a passion for innovation and high technology. He also has a love for elegance, fashion and style, and he is optimistic that others will have an appreciation for his inventive cufflinks. “I am now seeking clothes stylists, distributors, accessory manufacturers, wholesalers and any other businesses interested in a license to sell the product,” he said.
Cortin will soon be traveling to Japan to introduce his cufflinks to distributors who have already expressed an interest in the product. In addition, he has established an important connection with the Franco-Japanese chamber of commerce to make the cufflinks a success.
