Item of the Week: The Luxury Fanny Pack

Tourist chic.

By Tricia Gilbride March 25, 2014

Living in the era of normcore—where the key to having style is acting like you're oblivious to it—is tricky. How do the fashion-forward dress pedestrian while still making it clear that they’re in on the joke? Key pieces like a designer fanny pack help.

This Marni pouch is billed as an “embellished belt bag,” but the designer isn't fooling anyone.  The crystal beading on leather is very now, but the silhouette is unmistakably suited for a family Spring Break trip to Disneyland. Familiar, but far from basic–having your normcore cake and eating it, too.
