This Cos crossbody bag is a great dupe for The Row and it’s finally back in stock

The Row has to be one of the most chic designer brands out there. Created by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the super sleek pieces are often spotted on the world’s coolest women, as well as all over Instagram. But here’s the catch: The Row sure isn’t cheap, and purchasing a bag from them will set you back well over £1000. 

For example, the brand’s slouchy banana bag — which is only made from a nylon material — is an eye-watering £1,130, making it a serious investment.

Luckily, the high street is always on hand to deliver some excellent dupes; one of the best coming from none other than beloved retailer Cos. 

The Leather Crossbody Bag is made from a hardy leather material rather than nylon, giving it more of a long-lasting appeal, but only costs £89 in comparison to The Row’s £1,130. It has a similar crossbody design and half moon shape, which is super easy to wear hands-free.

‘A sleek way to carry your essentials,’ Cos says of the item. ‘Made from leather, this crossbody bag has an adjustable strap with zip closure. Considered design that works.’

The Cos crossbody bag has a secure zip closure also, meaning you can trust your belongings will all feel safe. 

Some of Instagram’s coolest ladies noticed this brilliant dupe, so it was no surprise to see it sell out last year. For example, Marisa Martins showed hers off in an Instagram collage, while Alexis Foreman wore hers with a casual cream two piece. 

The good news is, it’s finally back in stock in black, dark brown and cream. We think the bag would look great with any outfit and for any occasion; wear it with jeans and Birkenstocks now for a casual Sunday brunch, or pop it on with a slip dress for an evening event during the summer.
