Patches. Love or loathe them, it looks like this trend isn't going anywhere soon!
Whether you're raising a Military Man, Boy Scout, College Jock or Seasoned Explorer; you can expect to see patchwork sneak into his winter wardrobe. This iconic 90s fashion trend has made a huge comeback over the past 12 months, taking centre stage on European collections by Stella McCartney Kids, DSQUARED2, Scotch & Soda, Pepe Jeans and Bobo Choses.
Stella McCartney's military chic Lee Jacket is a sellout EVERY season and designers are now more inclined to add adhesive 'patch sets' to their collections, encouraging consumers to customise their clothes.  


Below you'll find a few of my favourite patched up pieces making their way onto the market for SS16 (northern hemisphere) and AW16 (southern hemisphere).
**note: proceed with caution, Dolce & Gabbana are amongst the power players in the patch world and are not for the faint hearted $$$**

On the flip side, there are loads of quirky, cool patches available online starting at tiny $3.00 that would make high end designers blush!
SHOP my edit including well known identities Caroline Bosmans, Bobo Choses, Gap Kids and Cotton On as well lesser known patch producers. 


I absolutely adore this idea of awarding patches to mark milestones in your child's life. Whether they've just moved into a 'big boys bed', started 'kindy' or performed in their first 'music concert'' there's a badge to mark the occasion and give your little one added recognition. 
Add the badges to a favourite blanket, cap or backpack and keep it as a momento for years to come.
