Andrew Davis makes a case for the bumbag

The bumbag (or as our American neighbours might call it, the fanny pack) has been gaining traction as the accessory du jour over the course of the past few seasons - and for good reason. Gone are the days when they sat within the vicinity of your waist, though - as oki-ni’s Guest Editor Andrew Davis says “we’ll leave that particular look to middle-aged tourists in cargo shorts”. Instead, the bag should be slung over the shoulder, with the main compartment sitting against the chest and the connecting strap neatly under one arm. This particular style is the handiwork of Maison Margiela; rendered in soft calfskin leather, it’s the ideal companion to a tailored wool coat and smart separates - and of course, those four white stitches speak volumes.
