The Week in Fashion: A Fashionable Fannypack, Opening Ceremony's Spring Breakers Collection, #Menswear Backlash

The week's top five stories in fashion news.

Ladies and gentleman, it has arrived: a stylish fannypack. Well actually, Want Les Essentiels de la Vie designers Dexter and Byron Peart are a bit more elegant and call it a "waistpack." The Tacoma features their signature excruciating attention to detail, gold and silver zippers, and comes in a wild print from their collaboration with Liberty of London. This isn't your great-aunt's fannypack from your childhood trip to Disneyworld. You'll have to wait for it, though; it doesn't hit stores until August. (Want Les Essentials de la Vie)

Opening Ceremony knows what's cool before you do, plain and simple. So of course they knew Spring Breakers would be a cultural phenomenon and designed a capsule collection inspired by it. Cannabis-print jerseys, anyone? The collection launches online and in their New York and Los Angeles stores today. (Opening Ceremony)
