When Fishermen Start A Trend

Every so often, designers take a break from being “designer indulged” and make their ideas accessible to everyone. This year, the fisherman’s net bag seems to be the trendy, go to bag for all occasions. The list goes on from class, the beach, work, and even the gym. Its easygoing vibe attracts anybody who wants to throw their stuff in something and go—forget the ugly and ripping plastic bag, those are no fun.

Most trends are usually “over” priced, because of the materials or because they’re in high demand. At least that’s my reasoning. I could be wrong. Perhaps I’ll research that for my next blog. However, I do feel confident that anyone reading this would love this bag. The neat fact about it is that it originates from being an actual fisherman’s bag in France, back in the 1800’s. It became standard for shopping at French food markets for its expandable and flexible ways.

Today, it’s rarely seen used for food shopping, although I’m sure it’s great for carrying fruits. It’s paired with any style outfit and can bought anywhere, even online from $8 to $18 dollars. I really like the idea of this bag because of its authenticity, originality, and the fact that it has a long history behind it. I don’t think this trend will ever go away; its very neutral, so I see the possibility of many people using it to go along with their unique style. Although the neutral, tan color is most popular, I love the black one, it’s quite adorable if I do say so myself.
