The Modalu London pippa Copy / Duplicate.

Sunday, 13 May 2012

I have just got in from meeting a friend and then having a browse in town and I had to share this news with you. If you follow me on twitter, you will have already seen me tweeting about my find. While browsing Debenhams, waiting for my friend to be customer free on the benefit counter (she never was so I looked at the handbags for a LOOOOONG time) I saw this bag and thought 'OMG Thats my Modalu Pippa bag, but cheaper!' So I thought I would share with you the Modalu Pippa Dupe I found. 


Modalu Pippa on the left, copy/dupe on the right

So I snapped these photos (I was getting watched by a member of staff, I must have looked like a crazy person) As you can see these two bags are near identical. The same zip pockets on the front, The same 3 zipped compartments inside, The same grab handles, same gold hardware.... HELLO Blatent rip off of the Modalu Pippa! I actually found this bag in two sizes. As you can see from the photos above the £59 one is the exact same size as my bag. Really roomy and has all the same compartments for a fraction of the £195 price tag the Pippa has on the Modalu website.
I then went and had a browse upstairs as I was still waiting for Robyn to be free on her counter and came across the bag again so I decided I wanted to take another picture, when doing so, i realised this was a bigger version..


This one is £65, a little bit more expensive than the other one from downstairs.. but still a lot cheaper than an actual pippa bag. Depending on how much stuff you carry around with you would depend which would be better for you. There are two differences between the Jasper Conran versions and the Modalu version... The JC ones are not real leather and they dont come with a shoulder strap whereas the Modalu is leather and does have a detachable shoulder strap.

Just like the original Pippa, this bag does actually come in a range of colours. I can only find the £65 versions online but you can get it in Black, Navy, Natural, White & Light Tan. I would suggest having a look instore if you wanted to get the smaller version. I will keep an eye on the Debs website though incase they are on there.

I'm so glad I discovered this today as I know there are a fair few of you that really want the Modalu bag but the price tag is a little off putting! Happy shopping! :-)

Much Love

    What a find- I can't believe how similar it is, thank you so much for sharing! I think that the Pippa bag is definitely worth the money, as real leather always feels amazing. But not everyone can afford, or justify that much on a bag so these are amazing alternatives :) xx

  5. Ooo I love finding highstreet alternatives of more expensive things! I really like the style of these bags and they look like a really good size, I need a new black bag so I'll keep my eyes open in the debenhams in my area :)

    If you quickly glanced at them you would just think they were the same! x

  7. This is such a good dupe. Typical me though, I prefer the real one!

  8. Wow they're so similar!

  9. They're so similar! It's a really nice bag as well x

  10. Love the Modalu bags, prefer the boxier shape of them to the Debs copy but who can complain when they're a quarter of the price! Have followed your blog, love it if you'd have a peek at mine Thanks! x


Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
