Not your regular pamaypay: Fan-shaped bags will be big in 2020

What’s going to be the It-bag of 2020?

Harper’s Bazaar listed down a bunch of style predictions last Dec. 13. A lot of them are great, but the trend that got our attention were fan-shaped bags. This accessory first made waves during New York Fashion Week spring 2020 when brands like Staud and Bevza included fan-shaped bags in their collections.
