'I'm absolutely in love with it!' Primark sends shoppers into a frenzy with ANOTHER Gucci-inspired handbag - and this one costs just £7

  • Primark are selling a £7 handbag that looks just like a £1,210 Gucci product
  • Both bags have a beetle design but one is £1,203 more expensive than the other
  • The bargain bag inspired a flood of Instagram comments from excited shoppers 

Primark devotees have gone wild for its latest designer dupe, which bears a striking resemblance to an insect-embellished Gucci bag - but costs £1,203 less. 

The high street retailer has unveiled a black bag with a cross-body strap and a gold beetle detail on its Instagram account - a clear homage to Gucci's beetle and butterfly-embellished version of its wildly popular Marmont design.  

But while the coveted Gucci number would set fashion fans back a staggering £1,210, Primark's latest budget-friendly bag costs a mere £7.  

It sparked a flood of comments from excited shoppers when Primark teased the bag on its Instagram account - introducing it as 'your new favourite bag'.   

Fans described it as 'actually stunning', while one shopper said simply: 'OMG I need this.'
