THE MICRO TREND
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 #1 Originally made for fishermen, the netted accessory is referred to as a filet in France.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.
