This summer, we’re taking to the moon.

Meet the moon bag: a structured, sculptural wonder with a crescent shape and circular armhole. Here, we’ve put together a few of our favourites to convince you that it’s likely the minimalist beauty will be the next style trend for summer 2020.

Staud 'Moon' leather tote

Here’s the bag that started it all. Staud’s signature “Moon” tote — as seen on Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid — is made of leather and contrast stitching that highlights its distinctive shape. This new style features croc-effect leather, which is guaranteed to make the bag stand out even more.

By Far 'Lune' bag

No points for guessing what By Far’s latest statement bag is named after, but you’ll get plenty of style points for wearing it. Unlike the other options, this ‘Lune’ bag is a slim offering which we figure can fit only a handful of your essentials. On the plus side, it’s lightweight and comes with a long chain handle too, so you can carry it with convenience.

A.W.A.K.E. Mode 'Lucy' padded faux leather tote

All right, so A.W.A.K.E. Mode’s ‘Lucy’ handbag resembles an egg more than a moon, but it’s no less a circular statement piece. And even more so because it’s made with padded faux leather that is soft to the touch. Here’s an accessory you won’t be able to keep your hands off of.

Coperni 'Swipe' mini leather tote

Another cult favourite in this peculiar category of bags is Coperni’s “Swipe” tote. The name actually refers to the swipe button on an iPhone, which would fit nicely in the oblong bag along with your wallet and makeup kit. And no worries about your stuff falling out; the Swipe’s top handle features a zip that runs all along it.

Carolina Santo Domingo 'Ostra' mini leather tote

Carolina Santo Domingo specialises in sculptural bags, like this “Ostra” tote. It stands out with its asymmetric shape and the unconventional placement of its handle which, by the way, is fully adjustable. More artsy than playful, this piece would add a nice touch to your outfit for business lunches.
