NEW YORK, NY February 6, 2016
The most polarizing bag of the 90s is back with a vengeance. Carrie Bradshaw’s go-to fanny pack showed up on the Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2016 and Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2016 runways. At Chanel, the bags hung from thin, double-wrapped belts paired with both daywear and eveningwear, while Alexander Wang opted for slouchy fanny packs slung on shoulders or worn across the body.Even retailers picked up on the hands-free trend this season. Unlike the 90s iteration, however, this season’s hip-hugging bag is more chic than the fanny packs you’ll find on your average tourist.
