On Display: Crests, Emblems, Patches and Insignia Details for Fall

Typically used to display an affiliation to a club or a tribute to family heritage, insignias brought a sense of belonging to the fall runways as designers decked out their collections with heraldic crests, embroidered emblems and iron-on appliqué patches. From school and sports uniforms to scout badges, along with the pomp and circumstance of baroque crests, these embellished details made their mark. At Undercover, Jun Takahashi created his own modern monarchy with regal medal decorations splashed onto silk sashes, Libertine used punk skull-and-crossbones patches to embellish outerwear and VFiles applied sport-style badges to bomber jackets.
