Crescent bags are the next big handbag trend – buy 25 finds here


You might have stumbled across this story by accident, but there’s a good chance you’ve Googled “half moon bags” since they’re so popular right now. From the streets to social media, these silver toned bags have been ubiquitous this summer – everywhere you turn it seems there’s a new one hanging from the shoulders of your favorite models, celebs and influencers.

The fashion world has seen this moon-inspired bag evolve over time.

And I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hoping to snag this Crescent bag from Dior by John Galliano for me before it was sold.

More recently, Staud’s has structured moon bag made big waves when it fell in 2019. And now, in 2022, we have done it Celines send Ava, Loewe’s curvy Luna, Gucci GG Marmont crescent mini bag and Louis Vuitton monogram loop bag.

Either way these bags are everywhere right now, and no two are exactly alike. Some are true crescents, no larger than a sliver, while others are more of a crescent shape.

Can’t say I’m shocked that Crescent bags have made a comeback as Gen-Z and Millennials obsess over all Y2K trends (see low-rise jeans, baby tees, trucker hats and chunky Avril-inspired skate shoes). The early looks have a big impact on which trends will reign supreme in 2022, especially when it comes to accessories.
