Today, Rick Owens showed a spring collection that was all about “love, humanity, sensibility, femininity, and womanhood,” according to the show notes—and one would assume, friendship. Because Rick Owens sent human backpacks down the runway—the theory being, almost certainly, that for those times when you just want to bring your friend along for the ride you can, literally. Hand her your cell phone, wallet, keys, Chapstick, throw her over your should and you’re good to go!
It makes a lot of sense, really, considering girl squads are such a thing right now. And what better way to show just how comfortable you are in your friendship than by having your BFF’s butt in your face!? And letting her hold on to your balled up ATM receipts! But how to wear this new trend? And when? Well, let celebs like Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence and Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss demonstrate how to wear these bestie backpacks and friend fannypacks in real life:
Going to the Supermarket:
The duo best known for inducing crippling friendship envy would obviously travel together to find ingredients to bake kookies, cupcakes, and other treats for the 13 other people in their squad. Karlie could grab the top shelf items like cinnamon and vegan chocolate chips, while Taylor sweeps the bottom shelves for the rolled oats so her BFF doesn’t even have to bend down!
On the Red Carpet:
We already know Amy’s up for a good red carpet stunt, so where else would she carry her new bestie other than to the big premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2? Who needs a push-up bra when you’ve got gravity on your side for once, right JLaw?! And if Amy’s feet get tired halfway down the red carpet, they could pull the ole switcheroo!
Picking the Kids Up at School:
Parents always talk about having eyes in the back of their heads, but with a Rick Owens’ Amy Poehler backpack, Tina Fey could pick her daughter up from school and not worry about losing sight of her—Amy’s got her back, because she’s literally on her back!
To Fashion Week:
Always on the forefront of a new trend and ever-so-happy to band together for a photo-op, the Kardashians will almost surely wear this Rick Owens look straight off the runway, and before anyone has it, during Paris Fashion Week—and who better to debut it than the youngest members of the Kardashian-Jenner klan, Kendall and Kylie? Seriously, we won’t be surprised if we see Kendall take a front row seat at Balenciaga with Kylie strapped to her front tomorrow afternoon.
