90s fashion is definitely here to stay for foreseeable future, and whilst we’re all about embracing the decade’s love of oversized logos, our budgets aren’t quite able to keep up.
According to TikTok, the current it-bag to have is Diesel’s 1DR Shoulder Bag, £339 here (was £425), where the handbag has gone viral thanks to its perfect balance of logomania and minimalism – not an easy combo to pull off.
OneTikTok videothat shows a fashion fan unboxing the handbag has exploded on social media, and the comments were flooded with fans gushing about the leather shoulder bag.
“I need,” wrote one TikToker, whilst another simply put: “Obsessed.” A third user said: “I just got mine yesterday,” proving that the bag’s popularity isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
Whilst we can fully appreciate why the designer bag is having its moment – it somehow ties together the current love of quiet luxury with the internet’s obsession with styling inspired by decades past – we’re not quite ready to fork out £340 just to keep up with the trend.
Thankfully, we’ve spotted a fantastic dupe online, and it costs almost £320 less than the luxury shoulder bag.
ASOS DESIGN’s shoulder bag with circle hardware in black, £22 here, has all the look of the Diesel version, complete with metal details and a similar rounded shape.
Of course, the ASOS alternative doesn’t quite have the oversized ‘D’ logo that makes the luxury one stand out, but it does have a large, oval shaped metal design located in exactly the same position as Diesel’s, with the hardware lying along the edge of the bag’s flap fastening.
Both bags also have a similar rounded rectangular shape, although the bargain version has a more exaggerated curve at the bottom compared to the luxe one. They both also have a wide shoulder strap, which can be removed from the Diesel bag.
One reviewer who bought the ASOS dupe said: “Such a lovely bag, goes with everything, and love the silver detail. However the silver does get scratched up quite easily, but luckily isn’t too noticeable.”
If ASOS’ dupe isn’t quite cutting it, EGO, which is known for offering amazing alternatives to designer styles, currently has the Jumping Diamante Detail Shaped Shoulder Bag In Black Metallic Patent, £26 here, listed on its website, which is an almost perfect match for Diesel’s style.
The black version is currently sold out, however there are plenty of different colours to choose from, including the gold version, £26 here, and a very 2000s style blue denim, £21 here.
If you're still on the hunt for the ultimate designer bag dupe, we also found a perfect £25 alternative to Prada's £2.4k Cleo handbag.
