M&S is selling affordable versions of popular designer bags for over £2,000 cheaper

Rising costs are causing many people to consider their purchases wisely and look for more affordable options without compromising on style.

Marks and Spencer is known for its high-quality food, beauty and fashion items, but shoppers have noticed retailers are really upping their game with accessories, with several bags recently going viral and receiving rave reviews.

In addition to its own products, M&S also sells other brands, including Dune London, which specializes in classic and elegant shoes and pieces.

Dune’s prices are fair, with many falling below the £90 mark, plus high-quality manufacturing and fashionable designs.

The Bag of the dunes features similar design details to Gucci, with a textured logo to the front, shoulder strap and in a neutral black hue.

The versatility of bag adds value as the classic color means shoppers can easily add the accessory to their wardrobe and pair it with many different outfits, and the understated design will appeal to many.

Although the bag has a stylish look, it is also suitable for everyday use and can be worn on the body for added style and security.

The description on M&S’s website says “this small and roomy shoulder bag from Dune is a perfect everyday accessory.” It has a main compartment and a practical front pocket, as well as a zip closure to keep your belongings safe. An adjustable and detachable shoulder strap ensures a comfortable wear, while the subtly textured exterior is finished with branded logo.

M&S also released another bag that could be compared to a premium version of Gucci, in a tote bag spirit.

The Bamboo handle tote bag is a roomy size, with signature bamboo handles, which together with the shape of the bag bears similarities to the small Diana tote bag.
The Bag of the dunes also has a zippered compartment inside and a removable clip-on handle so shoppers can switch to another strap if they wish.
Although these bags were recently launched on the M&S website, previously released high-end looking bags like the faux leather shoulder bag have sold out quickly due to their popularity, so those looking to buy one of the bags must act quickly.
