two layer bum bag trousers

$540.00

Presented here an extremely rare, archival pair of trousers from idiosyncratic design studio BLESS. Part of BLESS collection no. 39, "Heart Ringers", the trousers are double layered at the waist and incorporate a deep, zipped bag (similar to what is referred to as a "bum bag", "fanny pack", or less evocatively but perhaps more accurately a "waistpack") as part of the outer layer of the trousers. Two thick looped pieces of rope have been stitched into the waist on the right of the trousers, and can either be worn down, hanging loose, or up over the shoulder like a suspender. This will determine whether the top waist layer hangs down, exposing the second waistband underneath, or sits upright with the outer waist covering the inner band. The trousers have a number of pockets in addition to the waist bag, with two slash pockets at the waist in addition to two square, flap pockets at the back. The finishing of the trousers is of a high standard but also interesting, of particular note the custom engraved 'BLESS' rivet near the waist and the exposed but neatly overlocked hem.
