27 Moon bags to buy now, because round and curved bags are great for fall
If fashion trends like the moon go through phases, then it is definitely the season for the rise of moon bags. The defining feature of a Moon bag is a curvaceous body; both ends of the bag should round up and inward, creating an almost circular shape. Think of moon bags as the next generation of hobo bags – if hobos were slouchy and easy going, moon bags are smooth, more structured and more on a mission.
We can trace the moon bag’s rise to several design houses, including Bottega Veneta and Coperni, but the trendy handbag silhouette is now offered by almost anyone who makes a bag. All of this creates a wonderful moment in fashion history where moon bag lovers can choose from their favorite labels. Do they have a penchant for the asymmetrical half-moon version of The Row? Or how about Staud’s egg-shaped trend? Several of these bags, including Khaite’s red leather suede, Bottega’s plush yellow intrecciato and Balenciaga’s green Cagole, stepped out for New York Fashion Week on the arms of some of the most stylish onlookers; see above for the elegant proof.
As we head into London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks, we anticipate many, many more moon bags to come. It’s a trend that continues in the fall, and we are delighted. Shop 27 of our favorite Moon bags below, and read on to learn more about each style.
