For the past few weeks now, we’ve been noticing a curious little trend on our Instagram feed – scrunchie handle bags. It’s kind of a continuation of the circle bag trend that was popular a year ago, but this time round, the main driver of the trend seems to be a brand called The Sant. As a brand, The Sant is heavily influenced by elements of architecture, as well as avant-garde art. Each piece is handmade by artisans in their Barcelonan studio, yet prices are pretty affordable.
But of course, they’re not the only bag brand with scrunchie handle offerings right now. We’ve been seeing similar styles from labels such as Loeffler Randall, Primecut, and Elena Ghisellini.
The great thing about the scrunchie bag trend is that you don’t have to completely overhaul your wardrobe to accommodate it, and neither do you have to spent time thinking about how to incorporate the trend. It’s just a bag – if you pick one in a neutral shade, it’ll probably match every other outfit you can think of. And if you want something a little more eye-catching to add pizazz to your outfit, there’s always the option of picking out scrunchie handle bags in bright, cheery shades. We’ve gathered a few prime examples on how to pull off the scrunchie handle bag trend, as well as a few shopping picks to get you started.
