Embroidery is decorating fabric or other materials with a needle and thread or yarn. Embroidery may also incorporate other materials such as, pearls, beads, quills, and sequins. Today, embroidery is most often seen on caps, hats, coats, blankets, dress shirts, denim, stockings, and golf shirts.
Before Christmas we started to see this trend take centre stage within women’s products. However, It’s now started coming through all over the menswear scene. From shirts, jackets shoes and bags. Everything now has some kind of embroidered piece to it. I for one love this trend, I love anything that has a quirky motif to enhance the garment. I’ve selected a few items from my favourite websites to showcase the best the world of high street fashion has to offer…
If you’re a lovely returning person who reads my blog you know that I adore ASOS. ASOS always do a trend right. They jump on it and then take it 10374944 times into the next dimension and this trend hasn’t disappointed me! ASOS normally embroider flowers but they’ve stepped up their game and started to embroider different thing like birds and crowns which is even more reason to fall in love with ASOS. I love that they’ve added a little femininity into their designs but still kept the masculinity in the garments as some guys aren’t prepared to wear something that has flowers or birds on them. The denim jacket is my all time favourite piece from ASOS, It’s an awesome design and it even has a borg collar which I adore so much!
River Island has also jumped onto the embroidered trend but as always have taken the street style kind of approach. Their garments always ooze that street cred that people strive for. That little bit edgy and grungy kind of feel to it. While River Island have only really stuck to the hoody, the renowned bomber jacket and t-shirts, it hasn’t been as adventurous as it’s competitor ASOS. None the less the garments are flawless in design and I would like all of them please!
Now H&M don’t normally have things for men that are a little bit out there. However, This jacket is something I want and need in my life. But this is the only embroidered piece I could find on the men’s section. This is a stunning shirt jacket that’s perfect for layering. With floral detailing on the arms and on the back of the jacket it’s the perfect addition to your Spring wardrobe. I need this in my life as soon as possible!
