Can anyone else hear the hoofbeats? No? Then read this appalling news:
They were the must-have accessory of the eighties and nineties but quickly fell out of fashion.
And now the humble bum bag, also known in the US as the fanny pack, has made a surprising comeback with top designers and celebrities championing the once wildly-mocked accessory.
Fashion houses such as Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton have all showcased bum bags on the catwalk.
And unlike the garish bright, polyester styles of the eighties and nighties, designers have given the accessory a sophisticated makeover with smart leather styles often called ‘belt bags’.
And if that isn’t enough to turn your stomach:
Style-savvy models and celebrities have been spotted donning this sought-after accessory, including Taylor swift who was spotted sporting the ‘Ophidia’ bag by Gucci over the weekend.
Oy vey. (No pics, because I refuse to be responsible for mass projectile vomiting.)
All that said, I have to confess to owning one of these horrible things. It’s made of polyester, it’s in my SHTF bin, and it holds five 10-round 1911 magazines. For emergency use only, when I don’t care what I look like and there are multiple goblins to be shot.
