The Crescent Handbag Is The Newest Handbag Trend

24 OCT 22

While other accessory trends come and go, the bag remains an important piece of our sartorial puzzle, with different shapes and sizes remaining at the top of the style game for more than one season.

The slouchy satchel, bucket bag, and larger-than-life silhouettes have all reigned supreme in the past, but one shape is making a statement right now: the crescent. The crescent bag, inspired by the resurgence of 90s and 00s trends, is considered the middle ground between the hobo bag and the shoulder bag, with one style in particular taking the title of the season's must-have accessory: Salvatore Ferragamo's Aura.

The Ferragamo Aura bag has a distinct style that exudes modern glamour. The slick, sliver-like shape distinguishes it from the crowd while seamlessly blending in with the casual-cool style of off-duty models, influencers, and famous faces. Although appearances may deceive, the lunar-inspired Ferragamo Aura is subtly spacious, with plenty of space for your personal effects.

For a minimal feel and maximum functionality, the calf-leather lined interior includes a flat pocket, double slots, and a back pocket with magnet closure. The most distinguishing feature of the Ferragamo Aura's uptown yet casual look is the large, saddlery-inspired Elaphe-covered chain. The snakeskin adds a touch of luxury to the look by matching the bag's trim.

The bag's front flap features the brand's signature Gancio logo in macro form, which matches the large chain. It's a signature style fixture of any Salvatore Ferragamo accessory, inspired by the front gates of the Palazzo Spini Feroni in the brand's home of Florence.

The Ferragamo Aura is a bag as individual as its wearer, designed to be worn in a variety of ways. Wear it over the shoulder for a more casual look reminiscent of the Y2K-era from which the crescent shape evolved. Cross body is a great way to transition from day to night, and the Ferragamo Aura perfectly combines practicality and luxury.
