Savvy shopper finds £6 Primark ‘dupe’ of £1.5k Balenciaga bag

Want the designer look for less? One savvy shopper on TikTok claims to have discovered a ‘dupe’ of the Balenciaga Hourglass Bag that will cost you under a tenner!

In a clip that’s been viewed over 30,000 times, @daniellesarajane shares her amazement after picking up a bag in Primark that looks remarkably similar to the high-end original.

“Balenciaga Hourglass dupe in Primark and it’s only £6,” the user captions the video.

“So glad I got my hands on this,” she adds.

The Primark version looks almost identical to Balenciaga’s bestseller, featuring a curved design, top handle and an all-over crocodile effect. All it’s missing is the iconic ‘B’ buckle.

Shoppers who are lucky enough to nab themselves one, can pick from three colourways – blue, chocolate brown and a tan shade, with each design available in store for just £6.

It hasn’t taken long for other TikTok users to catch on either, with many uploading clips of the bargain bag to their own accounts.

A user named Molly Pashby managed to pick up the tan colourway in store and shared a video of it to her TikTok account.


“Primark have balenciaga hour glass dupes. Can’t go wrong for £6,” she captions the clip.

The store has since shared a picture of all three bags to its Instagram account, where users were quick to point out how expensive they look.

“These look designer,” one person writes, posting heart eye emojis.

“Stunning,” another comments, “I need all colours.”

“Oh my goodness. I want them in every colour,” a third writes.

A fourth adds; “Saw them today they r soo cute I need to invest.”

If you’re planning a trip to Primark in the near future, be sure to check out the store’s other designer-looking bags, including a quilted design that looks just like Bottega’s famous original and a cross-body bag that could be compared to Prada’s re-edition bestseller.

You better be quick though, because TikTokers have already picked up on these designs and have posted clips of them to the social media app.

“Dupe designer bags in Primark,” user @mercjessica_x writes.
