Patches are a trend. For the story, it appeared in the 70s as way of expression then in the 90s in a pop vibe with bold colors. Now in 2016, it's the revival again, I've seen it everywhere and every brand comes out with patches on anything. Clothing (denim, leather, etc), shoes and bag. But the great thing is that we can do it ourselves. The idea is to have an exclusif piece without spending too much money for it. You can find patches almost everywhere and customize something you have in your closet and give it a refresh.
I am partnering with Zalando on this DIY project and when they asked me what I would like to show, I immediately came out with the idea of the patches as I know that you would love.
