Never mind that it recalls the time when students used to hang cute charms or keychains on their schoolbags, but now the trend of hanging decorative charms or trinkets on bags is making a comeback.

The trend was widely popular over a decade ago, prompted by Prada’s introduction of robot charms crafted from industrial parts like jumper cables, bolts and screws designed to embellish their bags.
