Judging by the Spring 2013 runways, it would appear that there is a certain accessory attempting, yet again, to make a comeback. Designers Rachel Zoe, Lacoste, DKNY, and Jeremy Scott all sent the hip hugging fanny pack down the catwalk. This isn’t the first time designers have adorned their ensembles with the hip satchel though. It seems like for the last three years, fanny packs have been trying their darndest to regain social relevance. I hate to quote Mean Girls (slash, love it), but in the words of Regina George, “Stop trying to make fetch happen.”
But alas, it would seem some celebrities drank the Kool-Aid and designers are practicing what they preach… and who could forget the Carrie Bradshaw Gucci fanny pack moment? In theory, I get the fanny pack. We need both hands to carry our lattes, walk our dogs, hail a taxi, and simultaneously text and Instagram. Who wouldn’t want a little hip pouch a la kangaroos to hold all of our essentials? But really? I don’t even care if you gave it the chic new name of hip purse or waist wallet, the last place that needs more attention is my hip region… and these hips don’t lie. So, ladies, I must ask, are we doing this come spring?
That’s so fetch.
