One accessory that is all over our fashion-filled feeds is the half-moon bag! You may wonder how it rapidly convulsed into the realm of handbags. For us, the lunar-inspired bag ticks off the right boxes, whether sculptural or slouchy. Because of their frame, the bags offer ample room to be functional and the right amount of minimalism to complement any aesthetic. Half-moon bags have been re-invented into a contemporary evolution of the evergreen hobo bag — only made classier, curvier, and chicer.
An antithesis to the oversized totes, the crescent bags bring an elegant flair and make a statement not with their size but with their shape. This accessory du jour will take you from city streets to sunny beaches with remarkable ease. The dawn-to-dusk versatility brings loads of practicality and a bit of quirk in its globular silhouette.
From Kardashian-Jenner and Hadid sisters to Doja Cat, all the cool girls are parading the celestial beauties. No matter if they are made of leather or canvas, bedazzled with crystals and fringes, or come in neutral color palettes or vivid tones, they will sit on your shoulders like absolute pieces of perfection.
Many labels have been reviving old staples from the early aughts and bringing them to prominence — it makes for a triumphant synergy that blends the classic with the modern. Case in point: LV Loop bag, Jackie 1961, or Padlock from Gucci. On the other hand, stalwart fashion houses like Fendi, Balenciaga, Burberry, and Stella McCartney have adhered to the trend and created the Fendigraphy, Cagole, Olympia, and Frayme respectively.
