Looks Familiar…

Zara vs Prada

Zara have just launched their spring/summer 2015 campaign, and as usual there are more than a few ‘references’ to the season’s designer collections.  There’s a nod to Prada (above) and a touch of Tommy Hilfiger…

But the overriding ‘influence’ seems to be the Chloé girl.  Here are just a few of the catwalk comparisons…

Now, I love high street fashion, but season after season Zara in particular does seem to tread a very fine line between ‘echoing’ and blatantly copying looks from the catwalk. And while this may be a boon for us the consumers, as well as Zara’s bottom line, where does it leave the original creators?  Is imitation the greatest form of flattery? What do you think?

  1. Completely agree, although personally I think all high street stores try to make their take on designer pieces, they just dont always produce such great quality items. Also lovely blog! Emily x
