This most recent New York Fashion Week proved that minimalism and subtle statements may be a thing of the past for the next upcoming spring season. In terms of accessories, one trend that made a clear impression was the fanny pack. Designers like Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Tam, and Creatures of the Wind all featured their version of the sometimes controversial piece in their collections. The polarizing accessory has been making its comeback in the street style world, and based on these most recent designer releases, is only gaining in popularity.
Marc Jacobs‘ most recent collection for Spring 2018 was inspired by earlier decades of his career, along with the atmosphere of New York City, in which his career has taken place. He utilized fanny packs in oversized styles and vibrant colors, thought to be representative of New York City tourism. Shane Gabier and Chris Peters of Creatures of the Wind drew inspiration from famous Dutch painters as well as the psychedelic movement of the 1960’s, and included fanny packs in neutral tones and leather fabrics.
