IF you've got expensive taste when it comes to handbags but not the bank balance to match, then listen up.
An increasing number of supermarkets are flogging designer replicas that look almost identical but for a fraction of the price – and the latest to get in on the action is Sainsbury's.
Fashion fans have been going wild after spotting the popular supermarket chain flogging a dupe of Celine's 'medium classic bag in a box.'
With its similar shape and gold clasp, there's no denying Sainsbury's' 'Black Satchel Cross Body Bag' is a doppelganger for the Celine designer version.
But the luxury label's bag will set you back a £3,100, meaning that at just £16, the high-street version is a staggering £3,084 cheaper.
However, eagle-eyed shoppers will spot a few minor differences between the two.

The luxury designer bag is comprised of calskin and lambskin lining, while Sainsbury's dupe, which is available in four colours – black, pink, green and tan – is made from faux leather.
The product description for the Sainsbury's replica reads: "Keep your essentials to hand with our fabulous black cross body bag.
