This past New York Fashion Week, I had a great time photographing some of the street style that was happening in and around the fashion shows. What I enjoyed most about this experience is finding new trends and seeing current ones come to life. Also, it's great when people's personal style can come to life - when they style pieces in new ways.
Cue the fanny pack. Scratch that. I mean the "Belt Bag".
The belt bag was all over fashion week. There were multiple instances of designer belt bags, with Gucci seeming to lead the way. Some women wore these traditionally, while there was another that wore it as a crossbody. Which way would you choose to wear it?
My fascination with the resurgence of this trend didn't stop there.
During a recent walkthrough of Saks Fifth Avenue, I was strolling through the multi-level store when I stumbled upon a mannequin. She was donning the now infamous belt bag! It was styled, once again, differently than I had seen before - with activewear. On the streets during NYFW, I was seeing the belt bag dressed up to slightly more casual. Now, I saw it styled in a whole new way - with activewear.
The point of this belt bag post?
First of all, it's true - fashion does recycle its trends. Although, one could argue the fanny pack wasn't necessarily a trend.
Secondly, this is another trend that can be geared to your own personal style and worn to fit your needs.
Lastly, proof that fashion should be fun. A fanny pack coming back in style, just rebranded as a belt bag? Love it.
P.S. Why not pair your belt bag with an Adea Modal Tee and a blazer. Make it your own.

The headline for this blog is a timely piece of advice for the fashion world from St. Laurent CEO Francesca Bellettini when questioned about global expansion and the best way to handle it. The first time I used this quote was for an ADEA blog titled “Dolce and Gabbana Say, “We’re Sorry.” CLICK HERE if you’re interested in reading about their debacle in China.
LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton made waves recently with its announcement of the fashion house, Fenty, led by Rihanna. This was a first in many aspects for LVMH. What stood out the most to me was LVMH was investing in someone whose original profession was not that of a designer. Yes, Rihanna was widely accepted in the fashion world as a trendsetter and had various collaborations under her belt, but she was not a traditional designer.
