Irony with a dose of so­phis­ti­ca­tion. Ever since Vete­ments in­tro­duced a new way of ac­ces­soris­ing with fish­nets (see: Au­tumn/ Win­ter ’17), style lu­m­i­neers have turned it into a sea­son­less sta­ple. Be­low, a sum­mary of its ori­gins. #1 Orig­i­nally made for fish­er­men, the net­ted ac­ces­sory is re­ferred to as a filet in France. #2 Else­where, like in Ja­pan, clam­mers utilise net­ted bags to store freshly caught shell­fish. #3 In the Soviet Union, the bag is also known as an avoska— the go-to ac­ces­sory of babushkas for car­ry­ing gro­ceries, be­fore the ad­vent of plas­tic bags.
