Red Star Style

I admit, I know next to nothing about Russian culture or design, but there’s just something about communist-era design that appeals so much to me. Maybe it’s because it’s so bold, plain and direct. Something that shouts and calls to attention immediately – no-nonsense communication. If only all design can speak to us so clearly.

It’s hip to be kitsch, pin one of these Russian military badges on a serious-looking blazer and see your outfit  pop to life. They’re on sale now at $5 each.

A closer look

The ‘badge’ on the first row is called a Everyday Cockade, to affix on the band around the officer’s cap. That’s why you see two flaps that bend out from behind.

The badge with the ‘2’ is an Armoured Qualification badge – 2nd Class.

They’re also great on a beret.

And if your ears are feeling cold, here’s a big woolly cap with ear flaps.
