You may recall the days, Blog Reader, when belt-bags were all the rage. Not just for the out-of-place tourist, in 2011 these accessories were back on the catwalk when Diane von Furstenberg brought out a range that would set you back $325 a piece. I bet you we can see at least one on Carrie in the old Sex And The City, too.
Hipsters for Sisters are reinventing this style again, to liberate women from their luggage. More than just a belt bag – their accessories double up as a clutch for the evenings which is a nice touch. This, their Cobalt Blue belt bag is my favourite from their collection for wearing casually wrapped around the waist of my denim jeans in the day and under my arm sans-strap in the evening. If you are in doubt about the return of the fanny pack you need to check out Hipsters’ tumblr which showcases some fabulous styling with the bags such as from Could I Have That and The Fashion Eaters.
Eco-friendly, cruelty free, Hipsters for Sisters is a Los Angeles-based design firm that offers functional dressing solutions for women on the go. Originally founded by Debra Denniston and her two daughters Kate and Rachel back in January 2012, the bags are produced locally, handcrafted from beautifully soft, vegan leathers and high-quality woven fabrics.
