H&M’s quilted tote bag looks ‘so high end’ it could be mistaken for YSL’s £3.6k version | The Sun

H&M shoppers have spotted a £28 quilted tote bag that’s the perfect budget-friendly alternative to the posh Saint Laurent’s £3620 shopping bag.

When it comes to high-end luxury bags, the designer brand YSL certainly are up there in the top, often creating one-of-a-kind and iconic designs – whether it's a chic clutch or an everyday purse.

One of their latest artisrtic creations, The Icare Maxi Shopping Bag In Quilted Lambskin, is no exception, with every other influencer and celebrity racing to snap up a copy.

And rightly so, as the posh bag in black is the perfect size, having enough room to carry your essentials, also boasting the iconic YSL logo in gold.

Top handles make it comfortable to carry over your shoulder, whilst the removable zipped pouch helps keep your belongings safe – and you can also turn it into a smaller make-up bag.

However, priced at an astronomical £3620, this accessory is certainly not the most affordable for many cash-strapped fashionistas.

Luckily, bargain-hunting style lovers have spotted what they reckon could be a great lookalike of the high-end bag – and it can be found at your local H&M.

Although not an identical dupe, H&M’s new Quilted Shopper comes with a similar matte leather finish and has a more triangular shape.

Similarly to the pricey designer sister, the more affordable baghas chic diamond quilting and large top handles, which means you can throw it over your shoulder and carry it around whilst running errands.

The bag, which retails for £27.99, measures 50cm wide,33cm high and 11cm deep and has already been braised by a number of cash-savvy shoppers.

One wrote: “A very nice stylish bag, holds everything (laptop etc) and an inside zip and open pocket the only downside it's a shame you can't clip/close the bag.”

Someone else chimed in: “This bag looks good but it's quite lightweight the straps could be bigger overall it's stylish.”


As pointed out by some customers, the H&M bag does not have closure – however, the two internal compartments, including a zipped one, is perfect for keeping any valuables safe – and you also won;t have to fish around looking for keys and your wallet.

However, if you’d prefer a fastenable version of the bag, there are a few other options on the high street, such as including Mango’s Quilted Shopper Bag (£35.99), as well as Whistles’ Lyle Leather Quilted Handbag (£180).

Heading to the high street this week to start your Christmas shopping? Make sure to pop into Zara – according to shoppers, the retailer's selling a fantastic dupe of the cult favourite Kilian scent that's £170 cheaper.

One woman, Sari Friedman, claimed that Zara were selling a close match to the viral designer perfume – and the only notable difference was the price.

Whilst a 50ml bottle of the posh version retails for an astronomical £195 at Harrods, a 100ml bottle of the dupe sells for £22.99 – not only are you saving money, but also getting twice as much product.

The Zara fragnance, which will make for the perfect gift, boasts notes of orange, cinnamon, amber and warm spice.

Meanwhile, the high-end sister has notes of cognac, cinnamon, tonka bean and sandalwood.

Urging others to not sleep on the bargain deal, Sari said in her video: ''I’m about to save you a whole chunk of money.

''If you were like me and you love Kilian Angel Share, but you cannot stomach the price tag ’cause she’s fancy and expensive.

“It legit smells the exact same. It’s a little less boozy, a touch sweeter, but the DNA, identical.

''Zara's dupe for Killian Angel's Share is spot on!'' the delighted customer couldn't stop raving about the scent.
