Revealing the Designs of the August 2021 Glam Bag: Official IPSY Spoilers


Whether you’re jet-setting for an overdue vacay or taking a long weekend to rest and recharge (August is #NationalWellnessMonth!), the upcoming Glam Bag, Glam Bag Plus, and Glam Bag X designs are the ultimate companions for your adventures.

Want to know more about what went into the design and construction of August’s design? We tapped IPSY’s bag designer Joanne Wong to give us a behind the scenes look at her process.

“August's design was inspired by the outdoor travel adventure and 2021’s pre-fall fashion show with natural colors and animal textures,” explains Wong. The neutral cream color and faux reptile texture give the August Glam Bag an understated-yet-wild vibe that will complement just about any outfit. We’re totally envisioning this with lived-in denim, white tees, and strappy sandals.

Heading out of town? Wong gives us her packing pro tip. “I love the envelope shape and snap button, which is great as a passport holder when I travel. Plus, it easily fits my smartphone, hotel room keys, and lipstick for evenings out.”

Ultra soft microfiber, rich mossy green hues with pops of lime, faux lizard texture—the August Glam Bag Plus pouch is what dreams are made of for transitional wardrobes. “The colors and textures of the bags are designed to be both fashionable and wearable around the summer and early fall,” says Wong.

The roomier size of the drawstring pouch has major benefits, too. “It’s the perfect size to fit my travel essentials for a day trip, like my phone, power bank, hand sanitizer, hair ties, SPF, sunglasses, and some snacks,” adds Wong.

“I can’t stop touching the bag!” Wong says, detailing this incredibly chic edition of August’s Glam Bag X. Curated by Halsey (!!), the new design features a faux suede exterior, unique lizard-like texture, silver hardware, and a vibrant green lining that contrasts the soft cocoa exterior.

This bag was made for expressing yourself, so fill it with your everyday necessities...like neon liners, glitter pigments, and glow-in-the-dark polishes. (Okay, maybe those aren’t quite everyone’s staples.) Either way, we *do* hope this bag inspires you to walk on the wild side with exciting new looks. Need some inspo?
