CATWALK TREND DECODED
Yep, the bumbag just got cool
By Maybelle Morgan, 14 March 2017
Not just for festivals, bumbags are a SS17-update that minimalist bag ladies will love – practical and the perfect size for keeping your contactless, keys and change. Need proof? Cue Kenzo's catwalk and pictorial evidence that they’ve made it into the official It-girl uniform…
The 80s got a reboot at the Kenzo show, as models strolled down the SS17 catwalk in disco-friendly PVC boiler suits with shimmery chain-handle flap bumbags arranged at the waist. So. Good.
While the catwalk went classic (round the middle), the street style contingent – incl. Kendall Jenner at Paris Fashion Week – proved that the only way to wear the bumbag is casually slung around the body. Go black for weekend vibes.
Try it on
For your own hands-free thing, try a minimal black bumbag with faux-python detailing for subtle sassy (bonus points for the safety-first zips). Take notes from Kendall and keep it monochrome with black mom jeans, a white sweat and fresh sneaks. Dad would be proud.
