The majority of people will agree that Zara’s SS12 shoe collection really has been quite remarkable not least because this popular brand has offered hit after hit of truly covetable styles. In addition to this, their ability to mimic popular high fashion styles to create more affordable alternatives has proved to be quite popular. An example of this is Zara’s black strappy sandal which bears an uncanny similarity to Prada’s suede sandal. Clearly there is a distinction between the two styles but the staggering price difference cannot be ignored, Prada’s retailing at £515 compared to Zara’s £39.99 price tag. If you are a devoted high fashion fan, do you think Zara’s offering is good enough an alternative or would you still rather invest in Prada’s coveted style?
