Remember when Michelle Obama wore that Marc by Marc Jacobs dress back in March? Well, the bag she was wearing was significantly cheaper.

Banana Republic’s Market tote – we can only assume that’s an intended reference to Jil Sander’s – was Ms. Obama’s bag of choice to escort her on her trip to Brazil, injecting a splash of sunshine into her colourful spring look (though, frankly, with Brazil and a rainbow striped dress, we wonder why she needed any more).

The hold-all leather tote with its raw sheared edges is great choice of arm candy for the First Lady’s flight – and for the season in general – so you’ll be pleased to know you can snap yours up here for $120 (£73.30).

And if you’re not keen on yellow, you can opt for the brown, orange, blue or green version.

We suggest you hurry, though – Michelle’s selling power may not be quite as great as Kate‘s, but she can still shift a bag or two (hundred).

Mustard Market bag, $120, available at Banana Republic.
