Oft deemed a relic of the realm of collectors and fanatics, lapel pins are making a huge resurgence. The medium has been used as a means to announce your sports affiliations, memberships or just that you love your grandma. But you don’t have to be a diehard to anything to wear the latest lapel treats. Enamel pins are the perfect teensy canvas for independent artists and cheeky retailers alike. Luckily, an infinite amount of meme-worthy catch phrases and images are readily available for your pinning pleasure. And for those of you who want something with a bit more backstory, secondhand pins are easily acquired. I’ve been known to scour a thrift store tray or garage sale grab bag for the perfect lil’ flash to add to a jacket or tee. Freshly spotted on the Spring ‘16 shows, pin flair is back with a vengeance.
This enamel pin starter kit has me wanting to cover all my outerwear in lil’ clever pins! I’m quite enthused by affixing a little trio of pins to the collars of my jackets! I’m curious; how do you like to stick it to ya?
