The mystery, called Friday-Evening-before-a-Party, is slowly approaching and this is the moment when dusk finds its way into our wardrobe and by all universal laws there is nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, we could wear for the evening. Fortunately, this season is presenting us with a hot fashionable trend that saves us in such seemingly hopeless situations when we need some imagination and style tips. Patches and appliqués are the quick, affordable and easy way for us to restart, or at least lightly upgrade, our clothes which are lying at the bottom of the wardrobe but still have some life to them.
Fashion loves making us feel like children. Pampering us, provoking and exciting us. And it is makes us especially curious when it rewrites itself and leaves the pen in our own hands. More than ever, style is not about what we wear, but the way we wear it. Colourful patches and appliqués allow us to show our own style and understanding of the fashionable look. We become the very masters of the detail and it’s time for us to have some fun. Both with the type and the amount of patches to be used – everything is under our own control. We alone choose where and how many of them to put on – just one, or a few packs. Why not?
They match perfectly all possible reincarnations of denim – jackets, shirts or jeans. Even our sports backpack transforms into the ideal background for a few new patches. Actually, there is no disputed territory – from the baseball cap to the mini evening clutch – they all go seamlessly with our idea where these small colourful highlights might land. Street style is already addicted to them. See it for yourselves!
