Prada’s Cleo leather bag has to be one of the most coveted bags of the past five years – but if you’re looking for arm candy that’s a little more gentle on the bank balance, you have to see Mango’s newest arrival.

The Spanish retailer just dropped a leather baguette in beige and black for just £29.99.

Prada’s original Cleo bag comes in at £1,950. While it’s utterly beautiful, the price point means it’s simply not feasible for most of us.

As fuel and electric prices rise, I’m seeking affordable alternatives when it comes to fashion.

Mango is always one of my favourite go-to stores for handbags. Whether it’s raffia and straw bags for summer or croissant-shaped styles, it never fails to deliver.

If, like me, you’re saving your pennies, you’ve got to see Mango’s new arrival. It’s curved shape matches Prada’s Cleo, and while it’s more matte, it’s just as chic.
