Fanny packs sometimes have a bad rep. But really, they’re one of the most practical and cute purses around—especially in the summer, when you don’t have bulky layers and outwear stopping you from tying a purse around your waist.
This fanny pack is from American handbag designer Clare Vivier, who has dropped the last name from her label and now goes by Clare V. Like all of her other accessories, her fanny packs are not an afterthought and beautifully constructed.
My favourite print is this navy nubuck and pink spots number. It’s very playful and girlie, but also navy kind of makes it feel more grownup. The luxe Italian leather and gold-plated details also means this isn’t just another nylon fanny pack you’ll be taking on your hikes (although it’s ok if you do).
The thing that makes this fanny pack—dare I say—elegant is that it’s relatively compact, just the right amount of room for a small wallet, your phone, keys, and maybe a pack of gum. That’s all you need in the summer anyways, amirite?
The Clare V. Fanny Pack is $266 over at Steven Alan.
