Trend Report: Crescent-Shaped Handbags are On a Roll Pre-fall Season!

Fall is coming, and there are a thousand ways to accessorize your looks, but the crescent way is the one we crave!

All trends aside, it is a fact that you can’t cross a street without noticing crescent handbags hanging over people’s arms or shoulders. After baguettes, if there’s one bag trend we love, it’s the moon-shaped bag domination. Whether it’s the fendigraphy bag, Coperni glass bag, or hobo bag with a moon-like charm, we can’t stop dreaming about these round and gorgeous bags.

All About Crescent It Handbags!

These round and stylish bags aren’t your ordinary it-bags; some may call them a love child of baguette and hobo bags, but others may still confuse them with the other round bag types. However, we think these bags are a product of the Y2K resurgence that happened not so long ago. Now, every big luxury bag brand is looking to release a round, half-moon-like bag different from the rival brands, whether it’s Gucci’s GG Mormont Half-moon shaped bag or LV’s Loop bag.
