Patches are slowly making an appearance on the fashion scene. First on denim in particular and clothes in general, then on shoes and now on bags! Although fashion big shots like Raf Simons first showed interest in them when he just resumed his tenure at Dior three years ago, others were slow to pick up on the look.
With the emergence of patches on the likes of Valentino and Gucci bags, the look seems to be a full-blown trend that will cross over into the new year.
So far, the definition of ‘patches’ is fairly flexible. While high-end brands, are achieving the look by placing direct embroidery or beading on their bags, less pricey and more affordable brands are achieving the look by placing an actual patch on their bags. Yet, some others are painting faux patches to create the look!
See some patch-adorned bags below.
