After the high upper granny glove shoes are all over the runway and streets, the fashion crowd is obsessed with another accessory that your granny may be carrying around a lot – the string net grocery bag.
Appeared on many street looks during fashion week spring 2018 and featured in Vetements Fall 2017 lookbook, the string bag has made its way from a regular grocery bag to a piece of fashion statement, which is setting a new bag trend for being simple, chic and practical.
It’s no doubt that casual chic and functional staples have been in favor of fashion forward trend setters for several seasons, such as ugly shoe trend or pool slides. Now the string net grocery bag is the new add-on. With a small purse inside holding your valuables and the other fashion accessories like scarf or sunglasses settling in the net bag, the new fashion “it” bag is big enough to carry all your daily necessities as well as look effortless cool when artfully hanging down around your wrist.
With the price tags of a regular grocery bag at $0.72 to the designers’ version at $3,465, the string net bag made it possible to be affordable for everyone. After the cheap thin plastic all over the designers’ shoes on the runway of spring 2018, the string net bag once again proved fashion is no longer just about luxury. As millennials are prioritizing experience over stuff, the streetwear, functionality and playful attitude are weighing in heavily on the designs of high fashion labels, which are forced to shift their focus to adapt to the life style of young fashion crowd.
