Bumbags: still crimes of fashion

Bumbag

We’re all still agreed that bum bags are crimes of fashion, right? We were certainly all agreed on this most important matter back in March, when the issue of the not-particularly-offensive leather-look ASOS bum bag was raised, so we can’t imagine minds will have been changed since then. Which begs the question: what on earth made Topshop think it was a good idea to start selling green nylon ones? And who would pay £15 for such an object?

Would you?

    Topshop has the annoying quality of selling “ironic” products and seems to test itself as to how heinous a trend they can “reimagine”. I think they hit the wall with this one.

    Well, I do hate bumbags. But as an asthmatic who gets an attack EVERY time I so much as walk fast let alone jog, I can see it as being quite a useful device for such times as I feel the need to exercise (for putting my medication in – when pockets are unavailable for whatever reason.) But as a fashion item. NO! NO! NO!

    I agree they’re appauling, but for festival goers, they can be quite handy for keeping this form being stolen.
    though the new ‘tum bags’ to hide under tops are just as, if not more effective!

    If Carrie Bradshaw couldn’t pull this off (season 3? 4?), then I daren’t try it myself.

    Yeah sure. I’ll also buy the matching shell suit and running shoes while we’re at it…

    Just wrong. Sometimes Topshop really miss the mark.

    I’ve never seen someone wear a bumbag on their bum. Usually the wear it to the front, or as in my most recent encounter with one, with the strap across the body and bag on the side.

    The only good thing about bumbags is hearing our American cousins refer to them as ‘fanny packs’. Heh.

    LOVE the color (Hate the rest) ..
    But shouldn’t it be hanging in a charity Shop? Does anyone who is not over 76 actually wear these bastards?
    I fear for the poor fashion victims, who will wear anything if she is told it is fashionable..
