Fila Fanny Pack
If the dream of the ‘90s is alive in Portland, it’s living its best life throughout the rest of the world thanks to the return of the FILA Fanny Pack. Fanny packs became a staple for all walks of life throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s, which parallels the rise in popularity for FILA. The popular sportswear brand was founded in 1911 by the Fila brothers. Originally, the Fila brothers made clothing for the people of the Italian Alps, primarily underwear. It wasn’t until the 1970s, when FILA ventured into sportswear and began outfitting tennis star Bjorn Borg, that the brand exploded onto the global scene. By the ‘90s, FILA was one of the most sought after brands in fashion, working with musicians like Nas, NBA athletes like Grant Hill and Jamal Mashburn, and countless others.
High Fashion Fame
The fanny pack was once a fashion accessory that many believed had seen its last days outside of the tourist traps of Canal Street. But in 2012, high fashion brands gave the once forgotten yet functional accessory new life by referring to it as a "belted satchel" or "hands-free bag." This revival reignited the flame for brands like FILA to do once again what they had done in the past, make this item the must-have fashion piece of an outfit. The modern iteration of the FILA Fanny Pack, or “belt bag” as the fashion-forward would call it (and “bum bag” if you’re British), has been made popular by the likes of Kendall Jenner. FILA’s new fanny pack has repositioned itself from the waist to a cross-body style that has been seen at fashion week events from New York to Tokyo and beyond. No matter your gender, the FILA Fanny Pack is the perfectly functional accessory. Whether worn around your waist, across your body, on your shoulder, or any other way you can imagine, the two lined pockets will keep your phone, keys, wallet, makeup, and everything else securely in the bag.
• Two-pocket design allows separation of larger items and smaller or more important items like a wallet or phone.
• Adjustable strap can be moved to allow wearing at waist, across the body, or on the shoulder.
• 4” (H) x 8” (W) x 2.75” (D).
• 100% nylon. Imported.
