Moon bags

Moon bags are the black sheep of accessories, more likely to be found on old-school tourists or slots-loving grannies. But that was then and this is now, and in 2017 we’re all about taking fashion risks. Which means wearing the moon bag of old in new and surprising ways. What started off as a runway styling trick with the Supreme x Louis Vuitton Collection has now turned into a street style sensation – which is why we’re seeing guys and gals not just wearing moon bags, but slinging them around their necks and across their shoulders.

This quirky trend has also been a major hit with celebs, from ’90s Sarah Jessica Parker rocking her Gucci logo fanny pack in Sex and the City to Rihanna and Kendall Jenner killing it in Louis Vuitton and Dior. So isn’t it about time you jumped on the latest fashion bandwagon with one of these surprisingly versatile bags? Shop our favourites here.
