It seems like the belt bag keeps trying to make a comeback. Actually, it seems like it’s been trying to make a proper renaissance for ages, but it still has yet to gain any legitimate traction. I want the belt bag to be back in full swing because what could be better when you truly need a hands-free day?
The theme of Alexander Wang’s Fall 2014 collection is something to the effect of “cool urban survivalist,” so it’s no surprise one of the first bags to be released is the Survival Kit belt bag.
Wang pioneered luxe sportswear so it’s fitting that he’s expanded with sportswear “objects” as he calls them, and, well, I’m obsessed! At first I kind of rolled my eyes thinking these fell into the category of superfluous nonfunctional frills, and while maybe spending $135 on a jumprope is superfluous, it’s function and to-die-for chic.
