Fanny packs aren’t new or old, it’s…a little bit of both. But there’s something about that waist bag this season that’s drawing some fashion forward attention.
Let’s face it, fanny packs will forever cross paths within the world of fashion. Since the 80’s it’s been a phenomenal staple that fashion lovers love to hate or keep rocking!
This year it’s coming back fresher than ever because it’s simply more versatile and can be worn with practically anything these days.
You can thank Gucci’s fall/winter 2017 ad campaign, Supreme x Louis Vuitton’s fall/winter ’17 campaign, DKNY spring/summer ’17 ready-to-wear collection, Balenciaga and even Rihanna’s Fenty Puma line for that, as well as many other known designers who are keeping this look alive.
The style is expressive and designers made that known. Fenty Puma spring/summer ’17 collection for instance, has oversized bow-like shaped belt bags (another name for fanny packs) that have you wondering if it’s still actually a bag or just a huge bow-tie accessory?!
From the runways, to ad campaigns, to online retail shops, to the streets fanny packs are seen more oversized, elegant and sportier. And the detailing this season speaks on its own: quilted leather, fur, patchwork, nylon and even clear belt bags are seen trending.
Celebrities like Kendall Jenner, A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott, and even Dwayne “The Roc” Johnson who did a blast from the past spin for SNL in May in order to recreate his iconic social media frenzy photo of himself rocking a fanny pack. Nevertheless they are all sporting the trend with their own swag in the mix.
What do you think? Would you rock it? Or knock it?
