Fast fashion online retailer Boohoo has unveiled its latest Check Duffle bucket bag, which is a Louis Vuitton dupe that will save shoppers almost £1.4k.
Priced at just £16.50, the LV dupe aims to mimic the iconic bag on the cheap without ever sacrificing style, of course.
The bag is designed in a brown plaid pattern, with a drawstring to keep it snug, as well as two straps that can be worn over the shoulder or across the body.

On the bohoo website the bag offers a 25% discount on the item, taking the bag down from £22 to £16.50.
This compared to the original NeoNoé bucket bag 2019 which is crafted from Damier Ebène canvas, which is currently selling for £1,410.
The NéoNoé is widely recognized as a Louis Vuitton staple, thanks to the iconic Damier checkerboard print. However, the bag debuted as a bucket bag that wasn’t even meant to carry personal belongings originally.
The Louis Vuitton house, founded in 1854, was first opened as a luggage and packing store, selling wardrobe cases and canvas steamer trunks to members of the jet-set royal family and traveling explorers.
However, it was not until 1932 that the brand received a life-changing order from a champagne producer.
Asking for a bag suitable for champagne bottles, the Noah was soon born.
The bucket bag, which successfully carried five bottles of champagne, had a drawstring that prevented the bottles from bumping into each other or breaking.
The rest, as they say, is history. Considered a happy accident, the legendary bag evolved into a must-have accessory for handbag enthusiasts everywhere, as the Noé continues to be produced today, alongside new variations.

In other Boohoo-related news, shares of the retailer, as well as ASOS, fell due to the cost of living crisis.
According to recent reports, there is a significant link between rising yields and inflationary pressure, which has impacted customer buying habits.
ASOS has announced that Jose Antonio Ramos Calamonte has since been appointed chief executive, having worked as chief commercial officer.
Calamonte detected that a sharp increase in return rates coincided with increases in national insurance contributions, as well as food, energy and fuel prices.
