If you follow me on Instagram (it’s rosemarymaccabe, just F yer I), you’ll know that last week in New York I became the oh-so-proud-and-slightly-smug owner of my very own Céline Trapeze bag. This is the bag I have been dreaming of: structured, but not too structured; roomy, but not cavernous; slick, but not too sleek. I’m in love – and it goes with everything! Well, either that or I’m an idiot who’s been wearing the wrong bag all week! (SHOCKER)

Anyway, you can imagine my surprise-slash-horror when I realised that H&M was releasing a very similar handbag for A/W 2012, at the bargain price of €59.95!

Granted, it’s not the exact same, although the similarities are impressive. I am almost tempted to invest in one; I love that moss green, and the exposed zip on the outside adds a kind of decadent touch. Not to mention the fact that, without the front flap, it’ll be a hell of a lot more accessible.

What do you think? Would you stick with the original or do you love H&M’s homage to Céline?
