#SaveOrSplurge: Stay On Trend With The Half-Moon Bag
Every year, the runways make a stylish case for one bag trend that not only becomes a must-have for the season but also gains cult status in the process. There’s no doubt that the saddlebag is the most-wanted bag of 2016; style bloggers, celebrities, and the industry’s who’s who are wearing it. But one understated style that has also made it to the top this year is the half-moon bag. Introduced at NYFW Spring/Summer 2016 by Victoria Beckham and Michael Kors, the half-moon bag is one of the most elegant accessories I’ve seen on the runway. A sleek option with a touch of minimalism, this crescent-shaped carrier is totally lust-worthy. Everything from its geometric design to its clean silhouette inspires envy.
If you’re someone who loves keeping track of luxury handbags,you’ll be glad to know that Victoria Beckham’s sleek half-moon bag is now available on Net-A-Porter. This small, easy-to-carry bag is made of butter-soft grape leather and comes in two sizes. It has internal zipped pockets, a magnetic fastening on top, and an adjustable strap. The gold hardware adds a touch of luxe and honestly, it’s chic AF!
But before I can say “Come to mamma!” to this cool bag, here’s the (major) problem: its price is upwards of a whopping 90k. And though I wish I could spend that kind of moolah on my wardrobe, reality has other ideas. (Heads to a corner of the room to weep). So naturally, I had to look for a more affordable twin! While I couldn’t find an EXACT copy like I usually do, this Mango bag is pretty similar. With the same crescent shape, this Mango bag has a front lapel instead of the top closing. All the other features (inner pockets, magnetic closure, adjustable strap) stay intact. And the best part is yet to come… this one comes at a seriously affordable cost of Rs 3,000. Such a steal in comparison, no?
