Loewe’s basket bag became a cult fashion piece practically overnight when it dropped in Spring/Summer 2017.
Despite the bag’s hefty £375 price tag, just a quick scroll through your Insta feed will confirm that the straw accessory is just as popular with influencers as it was a few summers ago – even with the price not budging.
With the bag being so popular, it’s likely you’ll see it popping up on your feed once again as we head into spring, but if you can’t justify splashing out nearly £400 on the accessory, fear not, as Not On The High Street has brought out a great dupe of the style for just £72.
Loewe’s designer bag comes in various sizes, but a small will set you back £375 – pretty steep for a straw bag, in our books. So we couldn’t be happier to have stumbled across an affordable high street dupe that retails for a 10th of the price of the original.
From afar you would literally not know the difference. The dupe is crafted from straw in the same open shape, featuring leather look adjustable handles which means it can be worn as a handbag or shoulder bag – just like the origional.

Of course, the only thing missing is the embossed Loewe name and logo, however the dupe can be personalised with up to two embossed initials which feature on the front of the bag where the Loewe logo usually sits.
Just like the Loewe bag, it is very generously sized, with enough room for all of your essentials – perfect for picnics in the park with friends or beach days on holiday.
Style icon Lydia Jane Tomlinson is a lover of the designer bag, and we expect it to be popping up on her Instagram feed once again as spring arrives.
Here, Lydia pairs the bag with cream jeans, a casual white shirt, dark grey coat and white trainers for a cool and effortless look. Also on her feed, she pairs the bag with a pink floaty summer maxi dress showing just how versatile the accessory is.
