Designer Katie Beck, from the UK, also shared a video styling the “it” bag with a striped jumper, black pants, and matching loafers.
“Getting my hand on this bag has been the biggest hit of the season,” one person commented.
“Very elegant,” said another, and a third added, “I need this!”
The product is believed to have been first spotted on store shelves in September last year by UK radio presenter Melissa Riddell, who said it was an “incredible hoax”.
I was looking for a mattress but was clearly distracted. Doesn’t this bag look like a classic Celine bag? She said in a video, adding, “I can’t cope!”
But despite a similar determination, some customers weren’t convinced.
“Looks like it’ll scratch easily,” one wrote, and another added, “I’m not keen on it.”
Another said it looked “too small” to carry all his personal valuables.
