Half-Moon Bags Are Fall’s Must-Have New Shape

Is it worth? Yah, it’s worth it….Take your saddle bag, flip it, and reverse it. At least that’s the tune designers are singing as they hope you’ll flip over the latest trend in purses: the half-moon bag. (And now, we’ve probably also given you a Missy Elliot ear worm!)

Instead of the usual curve on the bottom, these bags have been flipped, putting the curve on top. This season, high-end labels such as Chloé are giving a dozen different variations. Chloé’s gold handle lets you carry it for a more traditional shape, or use the strap if you like to shake things up. But even more streamlined brands and contemporary designers are getting in on the game and adding a few updates and exaggerating the shape.  Soft leathers and structured bags mean there’s something for more free-spirited boho babes and I-mean-business ladies alike, so feel free to slip one of these on for an instant fall update.

At a recent preview for the new, fall Rachel Zoe Box of Style, we witnessed a group of ladies oggling over their friend’s new Chloé Nile Mini minaudière. The inevitable question? Does your phone fit? We’ll let you suss that one out, but this trend might be best filed under “form not function.”
