Topshop has sat at the top of high street fashion for a number of years, for me anyway. No other clothing brand seems able to knock it from its righteous place. It's just your go-to shop for any fashion dilemma, and you can always rely on them to have rails full of the latest trends.

However a few items have been spotted on their website looking a little bit out of place lately, and TBH they seem downright weird.

It's making me question whether they need to lose their fashion crown. Topshop must have hired a new designer or something, because these pieces stick out like a sore thumb.


Fans of the brand were baffled to find a tote bag on their site priced at £22 which look just like your nan's laundry bag she got from Poundland for a quid...

It hasn't stopped there though, and another odd item has been discovered on Topshop's website, and I'm actually pretty perplexed as to who would splash their cash on it.

A brown paper lunch bag is being sold on their site for a huge £13, and I'm not going to lie to you, it looks like a brown paper bag which you can get for FREE from the market. Talk about gimmicky...

Why would someone spend over a tenner on a paper bag though?! I'm so confused.

Topshop describes it as "the ultimate lunch bag" but I beg to differ, as it looks like something you'd get your Maccies in, don't you think? (Also free).

Unsurprisingly, there's no reviews yet for the lunch bag, probably because no one in their right mind would buy it.


Aside from looking exactly like a brown paper bag, it's tough, tear proof, leak proof and insulated, but I'd rather have the real deal if I'm honest. If you are planning on making a purchase, it also has a magnetic roll top fastening.

For those of you who still have their heads screwed on, you can buy packs of 100 brown paper bags for 37p to carry your lunch in from Amazon.

For some safer fashion, you might want to stick to Primark...

Not so ridiculous.
