This $40 handbag looks exactly like the viral Loewe ‘puzzle’ bag.

Must read

Since entering the market in 2015, the Loewe Puzzle Bag has cemented itself as the ultimate “cool girl” handbag.

Name a celebrity, influencer, or fashion editor, and chances are they either own it or have been spotted wearing it.

Beyoncé wore a bubblegum pink version to a basketball game a few years back, and Swedish supermodel Elsa Hosk always manages to look put together with her staple tan version.

Watch: The Hermes Birkin Bag. Post continues below.

There’s just something about the geometric shape, practical size, and different variations that make this handbag so unique and special. It’s unlike anything else on the market, which is why it’ll cost you $5,300 to own.

Luckily for us Aussies, womenswear brand Sussan has released a pretty spot-on alternative for only $39.95.

The Asymmetrical Crossbody Bag might not come in bold shades like bright pink or emerald green, but it closely resembles Loewe’s signature tan range. 

It features the same puzzle design and includes a crossbody strap for everyday wear. However, there is one big issue: It’s currently sold out.

Not that we’re surprised. There’s a big difference between $5,300 and $39.95, so if you managed to snap it up before it went out of stock, lucky you!

As we wait for it to be restocked (watch this space), check out all the other designer handbag dupes we’ve found. Sussan is clearly stepping it up!

If you’ve been lusting after a Goyard tote bag but can’t justify the cost, then this one is a great option. For $49.95, you get a similar amount of space, and you won’t feel guilty throwing it under a plane seat when travelling.

Maybe it’s just me, but this reminded me of the Louis Vuitton monogram range. The tan trim, gold hardware and light brown print on top of the dark brown (faux) leather scream LV and for $39.95, we’ll take it.

The Row is one of those brands that makes ordinary-looking handbags for eye-watering prices, so when I spotted this tote bag for $49.95, I thought, “I bet Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would wear that”. If you’re looking for the perfect tote for work, then look no further, because this is it.
