PINS & BADGES
PINS & BADGES
There is a demand for punk clothing more than ever nowadays, and the humble pins and badges, an iconic punk accessory, is at the top of the list when it comes to creating your own ideal aesthetic. Whether it is for daily wear on your favourite pair of jeans, or a jacket that is reserved for festivals, live shows and concerts. It is more than just a pin - it is a badge of identity, aligning yourself with counter culture. Gone is the practical idea of using pins and badges to repair torn clothing. Now they are worn proudly right next to those deliberate rips and distress you've given your outfit.
Pins and badges can represent the icons of certain subcultural movements. Sid Vicious, Johnny Rotten, and Nancy Vandal all hold powerful symbolism as figureheads of the anarcho-punk aesthetic and hardcore street lifestyle during the 1970s and 1980s, and still continue to this day. In the same vein, pins featuring Elvira Mistress of the Dark, or Vampira from the golden age of the silver screen, will express to the world that you're a little bit kooky and a lot bit spooky, favouring horror and Gothic themes. Pins are kind of like temporary tattoos in that sense.
Beserk has got more pins and badges than we can poke a stick at, from reputable brands like Killstar, Trick or Treat Studios, Punky Pins, Sourpuss, Kreepsville 666, Bioworld, Blackcraft, Harebrained and more! In the streets, patches continue to be a pulse not only on social and political climates, but personal fashion and identity. Wear your pins and badges with pride and join the ranks of fashion history.
