The half moon bag is the crush of the season From Kendall Jenner to Alexa Demie, all the celebrities are in love with this model of bag

Half-moon bags are the must-have accessory of the season. Just take a look at the latest collections or scroll through our Instagram feeds and you'll see that no influencer or celebrity, from Alexa Demie to Hailey Bieber, can resist their eye-catching yet minimalist design. It doesn't matter whether they're made of leather or fabric, covered in crystals or fringes, in basic shades or vitamin tones. What matters is that they have the shape of a crescent moon, a slice of absolute perfection to wear on the shoulder and show off to add a touch of coolness to our daily outfits. 

Just a few days ago, Doja Cat appeared in front of the flashing lights of the 2022 Grammy as a modern-day Cinderella, wearing a crystal-studded blue Versace dress and accessorizing it not with the traditional shoes, but with the Coperni Swipe, which the singer had filled with sweets and attached a JBL speaker to. Wearing the French brand's bag on the red carpet, in its glass version made in collaboration with Breanna Box and Peter Dupont of Heven and presented for the first time during the autumn/winter 2022 fashion show, Doja sealed its status as the ultimate it-bag, confirming that the passion many of us have for this precious accessory is much more than a momentary crush, but a love that will last. 

The model inspired by the iPhone's swipe-to-unlock icon has been dictating fashion ever since it appeared a couple of seasons ago, becoming Coperni's best seller and also worn by Tina Kunakey and Masie Williams (who has given it a vegan twist), but it is by no means the first example of a half-moon bag to become popular. The first is Gucci's Jackie bag, created in 1961 as a tribute to Jackie Kennedy and recently reinterpreted by Alessandro Michele. All the half-moon bags we would like to have in our wardrobe are nothing more than a contemporary evolution of the hobo bag, made simpler and simpler in its curved design until it became a must-have accessory offered, with small differences in style, by many brands. The Cagole by Balenciaga has a Y2K mood, Fendigraphy by Fendi has rounded shapes, Luna by Loewe has a slimmer silhouette reminiscent of a crescent moon, Demi-Lune by A.P.C. is now a classic of Parisian style. is now a classic of Parisian style, Jodie by Bottega Veneta stands out for its characteristic woven workmanship and Wonder by Miu Miu for its embossed one, Nile by Chloé is a super-chic minaudière, Cleo by Prada is a perfect example of minimalism, Moon bad by Staud is a favorite of Jennifer Aniston and Kendall Jenner, while Olympia by Burberry has even become an art installation.

Wearing it is very easy. Its curved shape makes it perfect for every occasion, time of day and look. For inspiration, just look to the celebrities. Hailey Bieber wears it with a jumpsuit and chooses the same shade as the waistcoat, Alexa Demie with a bomber jacket, Irina Shayk with a power suit, Sidney Sweeney with jeans and a cropped tee, Kendall Jenner with a shirt dress, Valentina Ferragni with a crochet jumpsuit and Leonie Hanne with cargo trousers.

All we have to do is let our imagination run wild, go with our style and mood and choose our favorite half-moon bag model. Below G-club has a few to add to our shopping list.
