Dare to Compare Lanvin and Banana Republic

Whilst I love the absolutely luxe feel of everything Lanvin, there’s something to be said about a Banana Republic bargain. For the Every Girl on a budget — and let’s be honest, isn’t that the majority? — looking good doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag.

Lanvin’s mini pop leopard-print bag ($1555, Net-A-Porter) features a stylish tan and black calf-hair animal print, done in neutral tones. The bag has a fold-over flap with a twist-lock fastening on the front. My favourite part? The gold-tone chain strap that’s wrapped and intertwined with black satin ribbon — Lanvin’s chain-link bag signature. This Lanvin bag features one interior pouch pocket, which means you’ll be able stow little more than lip gloss and your plastic in this pint-sized piece of luxury.

Looking to save some change? Get the look for less with this Banana Republic mini chain bag (was $85 now $59.99, Banana Republic). Available in a camel-coloured cheetah print calf-hair or zebra print calf-hair, this BR mini bag features a fold-over front flap with a gold-tone twist closure. It also has a gold-tone chain (with much smaller links than the Lanvin version). This Banana Republic bag is bordered in black leather piping. It has one interior pocket to hide small evening necessities.
