Beginning with the now infamous Bissett Bag, accessories and apparel brand STAUD struck gold with their small and sculptural designs. Their sturdy and colorful pieces have become a street style staple, but one could argue they’re responsible for a major shift in purse politics as well, with utilitarian carry-alls and practical cross-bodys fading into the sartorial sunset, and the purse-as-art-piece taking center stage as the arm candy du jour.
STAUD’s since doubled down on the trend with various other structured and sculptural designs, but their new and already-iconic Moon Bag is giving the Bissett a real run for her money. A roomier and more practical design (hello shoulder strap and magnetic clasp closure), the Moon comes in a mini and a large version but still maintains the structured lines and sculptural shape we’re all craving.
We’re into feelings here, so pair your art with your heart and wear them both on your sleeve.
