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. Of course, there was Fendi’s original logo-covered iteration, which they dubbed The croissant in the late 90’s and has since been manufactured in a variety of colours, patterns and materials. 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.
Think of the unique crescent shape as an amalgamation of your classic hobo and shoulder bags, a palette cleaner as mini bags fade and larger tote bags slowly regain prominence. Either way these bags areeverywhere 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.
With that, we’ll get you a crescent-shaped bag. To help you find the perfect bag for you, I’ve selected 25 options that span a range of different designs and price points. From a $20 deal on a pink ruched pick from Collection 18 to the Staud staple you can wear forever, keep scrolling to pick your favorite.
