Radley is renowned for its quality and style, and so we were excited to find the Radley Finsbury Park crossbody bag reduced today, with shoppers saying  it's the 'only bag you need' for everyday. 

We all want to buy own at least one of the best designer bags.  But often a high price tag gets in the way, no matter how stunning the design we've fallen in love with is. 

That's why it's so enticing when retailers offer summer savings, and we get the chance to snap up designer bags for a fraction of their retail value. And the John Lewis sale has not disappointed in this department. 

Now reduced from £129 to £77, you can snap up Radley's iconic Finsbury Park crossbody bag in the sale, and shoppers are raving about not only the bargain price, but the bag's versatile and 'roomy' design.

One shopper praised the bag, writing, "Fabulous bag! Much lighter than leather but looks equally smart. Perfect for holding everything you need to travel with useful separate compartments. The strap adjusts for fit and comfort.

"I purchased it recently for a trip to Rome and it was the only bag I needed. Looked great casually during day and when dressed up at night."

Another chimed in, "Smart and practical, roomy enough for essentials with several compartments. Just the right size for the day and smart enough for evening."

But the Radley bags in the John Lewis sale aren't the only affordable handbags gaining traction online and many shoppers are raving about the many high street versions of the wicker and straw bag trends that are now available to shop online.

Not only have shoppers been treated to a bargain £19 H&M wicker bag to add to their spring capsule wardrobe, but M&S have too jumped on the trend and released a £29 straw tote bag that's the most convenient airport to poolside accessory. 

The affordable bags are great for those wanting to get the look of Chloe's oversized raffia basket bag, French designer Jacquemus' Le Petit Panier Straw Basket Bag, and the hand-woven Dior Hat Basket Bag on a budget and we're so glad for the lookalikes! 

So with a bargain straw bag in your collection for those days spent lazing at beach, the John Lewis sale means we can add an equally affordable leather design for our city-escapes and evening dinner reservations, right?
