The rising It bag of the season? Undeniably the round bag! While we cannot refuse the convenience of the conventional classics—purses, clutches, totes—designers this 2018 have challenged us to find charm in these spherical options.
Arising in the '70s, this vintage design started as a sling bag supposedly to represent feminism as they left women’s hands free. Round bags were popular at this time, emerging from the Bohemian chic of the '60s.
Widely seen on the runways of Cruise and Spring/Summer 2018, designers like Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, and Chanel have shown their liking for this growing trend. So, it comes as no surprise that almost everyone wants to snag one of their own! Be it from a designer brand or a local crafts shop specializing in those du jour rattan versions, these round accessories add the perfect summer touch to your everyday outfit.
