It shouldn’t be a surprise, what with fashion referencing anything and everything that can be elevated – like the humble cloth pouch. Anthony Vaccarello’s take: recreate it in lambskin, add a cool brand (Saint Laurent Paris) and give it a name ( Teddy Pochon).
"The bag that will soon be seen on Influencers’ backs is not very big. It’s slightly more than A4size and holds an iPhone (maybe a selfie stick too), a small bifold wallet and a card case. $1,790"
Both are from the 2000s. Both had a huge following. Now, they’ve been resurrected because their fan base didn’t die; it just got bigger.
Prada’s Flame Sandals
S/S ’12 was a good year for Miuccia Prada: She was the ﬁrst to introduce It shoes when shoes were still, well, just footwear. The Flame (inspired by ’50s cars, with cartoonish ﬂames on its heel), was an instant hit, and is still highly sought after by collectors. Revived this season, the new Flames come in vibrant neons (seen here) or neutrals (black with orange trim, white with orange trim, and white with green trim). They’re no longer stiletto heels, but are now wedges, at $1,940 a pair.
Christian Dior’s Saddle Bag
Introduced in S/S ’00 by John Galliano, it was a most-wanted Carrie Bradshaw bestie in Sex and the City. After ﬁve years, it disappeared – but it’s back. Maybe Dior’s current creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, noticed “vintage” Saddles getting snapped up online. They’re in three styles for F/W ’18: calfskin, oblique canvas, or embroidered with beads, patchwork or fringes. Sizes: mini or regular. From $3,300 for a mini oblique canvas to $8,500 for the patchwork. Separate crossbody canvas straps are available.
