Hailey Bieber’s Go-To Bag for Fall Is the Fanny Pack
Fall has arrived, and the season calls for experimenting with fresh new pieces. Just look to some of the biggest trendsetters of the moment for inspiration: Bella Hadid has been pushing combat boots, Margot Robbie rocking flared jeans, and Rihanna even reviving the matching tank and cardigan set. But those propositions aside, there’s yet to be a standout bag trend embraced by celebrities for fall—until now! Yesterday, Hailey Bieber stepped out in Los Angeles with a very unexpected bag idea: meet the designer fanny pack.
Popular in the ’90s, the fanny pack is thought of as a pragmatic—if even slightly dad-ish—accessory. But over the past few seasons, designer labels have been reinventing the piece, adding luxurious finishes onto the hands-free style, such as supple leathers and graphic hardware. Bieber is clearly on board with the look: she hit the streets sporting Louis Vuitton’s New Wave Bumbag, which features quilted leather and the label’s signature gold LV clasp.
She further elevated it with a little runway-worthy styling, wearing the piece cross-body instead of around the waist. Bieber’s outfit also put all the focus on her bag: she wore a discreet silky two-piece set and clean white low-top sneakers. Still, there were finishing flourishes that made the whole moment feel majorly fashun: her signature Jennifer Fisher hoops and snake-rimmed sunglasses, by Gentle Monster x Alexander Wang, being a prime example.
