SHOPPING FIND OF THE WEEK – Prada VS Topshop

Whilst in my greatest dreams I am a Prada girl, and I do aspire to be one later in life, at this stage it just isn’t feasible. Prada is the dream, the end goal. It used to be an understated luxury, the anti-luxury so to speak, but now it has become something more. Prada is practically synonymous with the word. Say the name and people will recognise it. The accessories such as the tote bags do remain understated, with only a small emblem and of course the fine leathers and quality distinguishing them from the cheaper alternatives. The runway items are different however. Some of the most memorable items from Prada’s FW14 show were the oversized, colourful shearling coats. They look great on the runway, wild on Rihanna, kind of ugly in the campaigns (which were, in my opinion, the most dull Prada campaigns in a long time) and probably utterly ridiculous on the streets.

Here is one of the aforementioned coats on the runway. They came in different colour combinations and lengths too.

So here is my alternative, offered up by none other than the British high street favourite, Topshop. Yes, it’s not exactly the same but it is a hell of a lot more wearable. It has all the key elements (besides the garish colours) and if I were to take on the look, this would be exactly how I would do it. If anybody has a spare £350, feel free to send it my way… (Or just buy me the coat, ha ha ha).
