The nostalgic 1990s-inspired belt bag trend has been revived for the past few seasons, with major designer brands offering their interpretations of the cult bag. Practical yet stylish, these retro bags are a major hit on the front row and with the industry’s biggest street-style names. While bum bags are traditionally sporty in their aesthetic, plenty of designers made a case for more chic belt bag offerings for autumn/winter 2019/20. Louis Vuitton’s Bumbag Dauphine BB is a top example of the belt bag 2.0. The Louis Vuitton belt bag has been given neo-vintage look with the brand’s signature monogram print and tiny chain pouch. Small and sleek, this compact bag is easy to wear. Fendi, Max Mara and MCM also offered smaller, chicer models of the traditional bum bag with elegant leather interpretations.
Whether you choose an elegant evening style from Salvatore Ferragamo or Max Mara, or a retro printed piece from Chanel or Louis Vuitton, the autumn/winter 2019/20 collections have plenty to offer lovers of the belt bag. Take a look at our top 10 designer belt bags for AW19 here.
