In a sea of identical ‘it’ bags, bag charms and embellishments offer a way to personalizing your arm candy.

It has built momentum since spotted on the Miu Miu and Balenciaga SS24 runways. As these cool-girl brands are the purveyor of trends, the fashion set has naturally picked up on it – and went hard on adorning bags with an assortment of playful charms and trinkets. Above, content creators Pernille Teisbaek and Leia Sfez have mastered the art of layering embellishments on their prized possesions that showcase their individuality.

This trend offers a fun, youthful and authentic way to elevating, injecting nostalgia and hyper-personalizing. So, if you’re communicating your identity or political stance to a generic ‘it’ bag – the choices are endless. If you are creative enough, anything can be a bag charm!

In our hand selected edit of charms you’ll find a mix of high and low charms – from Loewe’s Dhs1,800 Chow Chow charm, Louis Vuitton’s Western Chain Charm that costs around Dhs3,700 (and doubles as a chain belt) to Sensi Studio’s Dhs200 Fruit Charm that is a perfect summer bag accessory.
