This odd "fashion attribute" immediately sparked a massive discussion online.
Why does Leo go around town with a purple plastic bag tied to his shorts? Does he feed the pigeons? pic.twitter.com/40UeP8Zjiq— Amy Odell (@amyodell) 17 июля 2017 г.
According to GQ, Leonardo took his lazy-day style to a new level: "We can't even call it a murse or a man bag, as that would be insulting to murses and man bags. This is just a plastic bag you'd get when buying some T-shirts on Canal Street or buying beer at your local bodega," the magazine wrote.
What is the most trash part of Leo's outfit? (Hint: it's not the literal trash bag tied to his waistband) pic.twitter.com/ErtNYzNV0m— Gina Kirkwood (@ginakirkwood) 18 июля 2017 г.
W Magazine called it "an accidental high fashion statement," recalling that just days before DiCaprio was sporting his look, one of New York's most acclaimed young menswear designers, Patrik Ervell, demonstrated similar belt loop bags on the runway during New York Fashion Week: Men's. What's more, the designer's nylon bags were as brightly colored as the actor's one.
Vanity Fair noted this was a smart way to keep his hands free, so that Leo "can do other stuff — like rub his belly, read something hilarious on his phone and walk while swinging his arms in equivalent vacillations."
Another thing that worried people was the contents of the bag.
Tabloids were joking around, suggesting it was his Oscar, next blockbuster script or vaping accessories. What is your guess?
