HIGH STREET VS HIGH END

Ask anyone that knows me and the first thing they’ll tell you is that I live & breathe H&M. The collaborations, beautiful ranges, DIVIDED and now the handbags all increase my love for the brand.
Recently I began to notice that H&M bags become much louder, in terms of style, and finally I have put my finger on it.
The bags designed seem to be inspired by big fashion houses like Saint Laurent & Givenchy.

MICHAEL KORS

This bag might look familiar to you in terms of the size and actual texture.
Priced at £24.99 it is a much more affordable than a Michael Kors bag, which can be bought at Selfridges for £240.00

GIVENCHY

These bags currently change colour each season. They seem to have been selling for at least 4 seasons now, The actual shape of the bag is very familiar to the Givenchy (priced at £1345.00) but because it does not bear the name of this fahion house, the bag is £24.99 at H&M.
