The most polarizing bag of the 90s is back with a vengeance. Carrie Bradshaw’s go-to fanny pack showed up on the Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2016 and Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2016 runways.

At Chanel, the bags hung from thin, double-wrapped belts paired with both daywear and eveningwear, while Alexander Wang opted for slouchy fanny packs slung on shoulders or worn across the body.

Even retailers picked up on the hands-free trend this season. Unlike the 90s iteration, however, this season’s hip-hugging bag is more chic than the fanny packs you’ll find on your average tourist.
