Playbuttons: button shaped mixtapes in the modern age


Remember the days you spent arduously creating custom mixtapes for that special someone? Opening Ceremony, an uber hip shop in New York City has just released a slew of “Playbuttons“, recreating the special made for you mixtape experience in button shaped mp3 players.

This week’s playbutton is the love button, which includes a suite of new, previously unreleased, and exclusive love songs. All proceeds from this playbutton will be donated to musicians on call, a non-profit that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of hospital patients. The love button is selling at Open Ceremony in a limited edition of 500. ($25)
