We’ve seen the re-emergence of functional personal accessories over the past couple of years, brought about by the upswing of traditional streetwear brands, normcore’s hangover and post-Soviet style influences. In South Africa, the re-introduction of the moonbag – or fanny pack, hip pack or bum bag – has seen a widespread revival, and its largely due to local brands. There’s no doubt the classic dad accessory is the best way to store essentials when you’re on the move or in the club – easily adjustable straps, small size, handy pockets and light weight, they’re the ideal way to keep your phone, wallet and keys safe and easily accessible.
One of our longstanding favourite local brands Chapel Goods has just introduced a moonbag of their own to their collection in four delicious colourways – avo, navy (our favourite), black and military brown.
Get your hands on one here or pop into a Chapel store IRL.
