If fashion trends go through phases like the moon, then this is undoubtedly the season of the moon bag’s rise. The signature feature of the moon bag is its curvaceous shape; the ends of the bag must be rounded up and inward, creating an almost circular shape. Think of the moon bag as the next generation of stray bags – if the stray bag is casual and easygoing, the lunar bag is sleeker, more organized, and more purposeful.
We can trace the rise of the moon bag to a few design houses, Bottega Veneta and Coperni being two of them, but now pretty much everyone who makes handbags offers a popular wallet silhouette Bag. It all made for a beautiful moment in fashion history, and Moon bag coveters could pick and choose from their go-to brands. Do they like the asymmetrical half-moon version of The Row? Or how does Staud’s egg shape feel about trends? Several of these bags—among them red leather suede from Khaite, pastel yellow intrecciato from Bottega and green Cagole from Balenciaga—appeared at New York Fashion Week at some of the most fashionable shows. See the fashion proof above.
