This past Sunday, I attended the Moncler Grenoble FW 2010 presentation, and being a bag person, I was immediately drawn towards the use of fanny packs. Let’s just say it was rather extensive. Models stood motionless on four levels of scaffolding; spotlights shone on different groups of them to the tune of classical and opera music. I daresay it was all very dramatic and lovely, since I’m a personal fan of Moncler, but I couldn’t help but wonder about the fanny packs. They were rather large and round, and I couldn’t help but wonder if the models had little heaters tucked inside them. Not that they would need heaters; if there’s anything Moncler is known for, it’s the warmth that their signature shiny puffers provide.

There’s no denying the chic of Moncler. Carine Roitfeld was at the presentation, looking every bit her insanely glamorous self; if that doesn’t indicate a serious spike in chicness, then I don’t know what does. You may remember the Fendi & Moncler Spy Handbag, that wonderfully bulbous incarnation of the coveted Spy. Is that any indication of the possible success of these fanny packs?


Though I loved the Moncler Spy and adore my own Moncler coat, I just can’t fathom the fanny pack being put to practical use in “a city atmosphere,” as Moncler Grenoble claims to be. Maybe it’s cute to hit the slopes, but the streets? Not so much. Perhaps I’m being a bit closed-minded, but the packs are just to big and too round to be taken seriously while firmly attached to someone’s waist. Keep in mind that this is coming from a girl who seriously considered purchasing a pair of Moncler booties. A Moncler belt with a small pouch I’d love. I’d rave after a Moncler crossbody, or even a ridiculously puffy tote. But I’m afraid I’m not a fan of the fanny.

    No, I can’t accept it. My grandma and dad use hip packs. I like bags and purses.

    Be & D did a fanny pack for SS10 but with a twist. Its called the Taylor and comes with an adjustable strap so you can not only wear it as a fanny pack, but as a shoulder and/or cross body bag.
    To be honest I wasn’t into it at first. But after awhile I began to love and appreciate its versatility and I actually realized that I could pull off the fanny pack look (which I def didn’t think I was cool enough to do!)
    Look out for it in stores soon and let me know what you think!

    oh my, looks like one of those fake pregnancy pillows!! no not liking this too much; i do however have an adorable prada nylon “fanny” pack that i was lucky enough to make into a cross body bag since it has a place on the back where i can fit a long strap through…

    I think the fanny pack will make a huge comeback at least by Spring of next year, if not sooner. these small accessories are the most highly sought after-usually older women, however, given what we know about the leading designers…Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Chanel, Fendi, etc….they will make them fashionable so that everyone will flock to them. It may take a while to pick up, crossbodies have been around for a while but only over the past two years have they become insanely popular.
    I remember I once debated with a girl and others that tie dye was coming back in the Fall 09. While they guffawed at my forecast, I love seeing all the tie dye prints in jeans, leggings, blouses,etc. it’s not intense 70s attire but it’s a more sophisticated look for the times.
    That’s what fashion mostly is, the same style different interpretations by designers and the current times.

    I wear moncler outlet jacket is warm and comfortable
    As a fan and consumer Moncler feel great, I wear Moncler jacket is warm and comfortable. It’s soft and light provided a lot of fun. In the cold winter, you don’t need to worry about the cold, just stay at home. Moncler doudoune will give you the most complete protection. As a famous brand, its outdoor sports level and the warm water surface removal troubles outdoor sports. This is a very good choice, for those who like skiing or other outdoor sports, especially in the winter is good choice, because Moncler man jacket, Moncler woman jacket and Moncler children will give you what you need.

    Maybe some question whether it is fashionable, because in the winter of enough, we not only need warm level and fashion. It is no doubt. The answer is yes. Look at those Fashionistas! In winter, they are the first choice Moncler jacket. Bright colors and fashionable design is simple, not only make out more comfortable, but also more fashionable. I remember one year winter is very cold, the shopping center all the shops and moncler vest were soon snapped up. Perhaps some of you are interested in store in the summer of jacket is a wise choice, to avoid the sale price, high peak.
