Handmade, thrifted beaded - if you spend nearly as long as I do on Instagram, you'll have seen all these trends, too. Pearl bags have almost become the cool girl go-to; we don't really need huge bags to get us around RN and daintier pieces just fit the getting-dressed-to-take-pictures vibe so much more. Honestly, this is like the modern makeover a classic pearl necklace needed.
Rubilon's an Instagram store I instantly fell in love with - started by 2 sisters during lockdown, they put their ideas together to create accessories that are trendy but still feel unique. The pearls and crystals they pick all have different colours, textures and sizes which they use to hand make the bags.
Their pearl bags come in a bunch of different sizes and shapes, the Pearl Mini is like the beaded answer to a Jacquemus Chiquito but they also have bigger bags like their bestseller Coco which is made with crystals and pearls both. I love the look of the heart-shaped bag for date night and the bucket bag and shoulder bag is perfect for anyone embracing the 90s / Y2K trend.
Their bags start at INR 1,450 and the prices go up based on the size and intricacy of the bag. They customise bags, too, you can pick your favourite colour, strap length or size! Plus, they're surprisingly roomier than they look so they're cute and practical. But I'm more focused on the cute.
