May’s Glam Bag Design Will Help You Unzip a Secret Garden


Before you even think to cite everyone’s favorite mid-aughts rom-com with a, “Florals for spring…groundbreaking,” let us assure you, May’s moody floral Glam Bag design is truly one-of-a-kind (more on that below).

Behind May's Glam Bag Design

“This month, I got inspired by florists,” says Glam Bag designer Joanne Wong. “Flower shops are always filled with the colorful flowers around Mother’s Day. I also saw the trend of floral wallpaper for 2024 as people brought outdoor beauty and nature into their homes after the pandemic.”

If you’re in an LTR (long-term relationship) with us, then you’ve surely seen our floral Glam Bags of the past, but Wong made sure to make this year’s version a standalone fave. “Instead of capturing all the brightly colored flowers, this year we want to focus on softness: quiet rituals in our own lives and prioritizing emotional care and meaningful experiences.” The moody floral printed over a smooth faux leather accomplished just that. 

What we love even more is that each May Glam Bag is unique. “The floral print is a repeat pattern,” explains Wong. “It’s an all-over print, so every bag has a slightly different print on the front and back.” One thing they all have in common, however, is the iconic gold IPSY zipper puller.
