2018 is the year of fanny pack’s revival, for this accessory will be absolutely necessary both in men’ and women’s wardrobe for the new year. The fanny pack has represented the most original accessory presented on the runways, even though it is an evergreen, and it has been able to attract people’s attention as in the past. The fanny pack, thus, would be the right bag to show off on any occasion this year.
The ideal season to parade your fanny packs is surely Spring, but also Summer 2018; actually it will be a ‘must-have’ model that accompanies us for the whole year. Some years ago fanny packs had already come back in vogue but in a street style version and in a vintage sporty interpretation, and with a strong reference to the Eighties. Since the last seasons, however, this accessory has been showed on the most important runways until it has become a viral phenomenon.
Fashion pioneers, fanny packs have brought a wave of innovation and experimentation before appearing in the last fashion shows, with some contamination even in the most classic collections. Soon they will invade the wardrobes and will be paraded on any occasion and with every type of look in cool but elegant terms.
This is because they will lose a strictly sport accent to take on a more ‘classic’ style as in the versions launched by brands like Gucci, that proposes bags to be worn as a belt; Chanel, with its shoulder bag that can be also put around the waist; and Prada, with its version of a nylon fanny pack to be worn on the back, offering lightness and freedom of movements.
