Alexander Wang Max Fanny PackSo I thought that fanny packs were taboo to the fashion crowd, fit for only tacky tourists and cross-country RV trekkers. But Alexander Wang, is as usual, blazing his own trail rather than staying on the beaten path. But who ever thought he’d go so off that track as to create the Alexander Wang Max Fanny Pack? And it has been seemingly well received- I mean, it is a Shopbop Editor’s Pick.

Last time I checked, editors were good sources for upcoming trends, but I don’t want to carry a fanny pack, nor do I really have any desire to see the packs turn fashionistas into fashion victims. Those were my thoughts before I saw the bag on a model. The model carries the pack slung over her shoulder, so it looks like a normal hobo bag, albeit one with an interesting squared shape.

But in true Wang style, this bag is made of gorgeous pebbled leather with lots or roughly shiny bronze hardware. But I’m still not sure if I’m willing to carry a fanny pack, even for Alexander Wang. If you do, please you yourself a favor and don’t clip it around your waist. Buy through Shopbop for $790.

    Every so often a designer tries to convince the fashionable masses that fanny packs are stylish. I think its a kind of practical joke. I don’t like it.

    $800 for a belt with couple of pockets?
    Thank you, no, thank you, I can get better deal on Etsy for a real handmade belt/bag that comes with so many bells and whistles that you need a GPS device to work it
    and it will also be one of a kind since it is handmade
