A huge trend this year is personalisation with badges, pins, slogans and embroidery. It’s coming through on all clothing from tops, jackets, jeans and accessories. The personalisation trend has come from designers such as Fendi with their bag charms andchangeable bag straps, Anya Hindmarch with her sticker collection and the likes of Louis Vuitton and Mulberry offering for free to emboss your initials onto items purchased from their stores.
Retailers have followed suit by offering faux poms and other charms for bags, iron on badges and pins. Earlier this year Topshop had a pop up store where you could get your name or a slogan embroided onto the back of your bomber jacket. Instead of getting your bomber personalised retailers are selling them already with badges and slogans on them. Zara are championing this with a wide range of bombers with these details.
Stickers, badges and pins are an easy way to personalise any item you already have that you want to update. Designers such as Anya Hindmarch are charging £45 for one sticker ! However you can get several stickers, badges and pins for a fraction of the price on the high street.
Here are some of the best pins and badges you can purchase from the high street including ASOS, Skinny Dip, Stradivarius and Topshop;
If your looking for an item you want to update with these I think the denim jacket is the perfect item ! I have been saying for a few months that I am going to personalise one of my denim jackets with badges, of course I am thinking of going for a mermaid theme and I have been searching for some appropriate badges on Ebay. My inspiration for this definitely has to be the badge mermaid range from Ragged Priest. The mermaid denim jacket is the jacket of my dreams ❤ It’s over sized, an authentic denim colour and has has girlie pink sequinned mermaid inspired badges and a flamingo ! Ragged Priest have also created matching mom jeans and a cool double shell boob placement pink mermaid tee.
If you don’t have the time or the patience to create your own personalised items of clothing retailers such as Topshop and Zara. It’s an easy way to get the trend but it will cost you a bit more than if you was do it yourself.
However if you do want to have a go at creating your own personalised items and want more unique badges and pins Ebay and Etsy are the best places to look.If you need some inspiration take a look at some of these designers Ragged Priest, Anya Hindmarch, Stella MCcartney, Discount Universe, Christopher Kane and Au Jour Le Jour. One thing to keep in mind is make it fun and make it be a representation of YOU!
