Made popular by Matthew Williams’ 1017 ALYX 9SM, the chest rig emerged as one of the hottest new accessories of 2018. Don’t believe the hype? Just check Instagram — everyone from Rihanna, Quavo, and Young Thug, to OFF-WHITE stylist @bloodyosiris has been seen embracing the new bag trend.
While the 1017 ALYX 9SM piece takes the cake as one of the industry’s favorite — having been spotted on Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, and more — the piece has since been embraced by other utility-forward labels, all offering their own futuristic ways to leave shoppers, side bags, and backpacks in your closet.
