You may remember a few months ago I did a post on Spring 2009 vs Zara’s Spring 2009 collection.

Looking at Primarks Fall 2009 collection, I couldn’t help noticing how similar many pieces are to looks on we saw on the Fall 2009 runways.

The most striking was Primark’s blue striped sequin dress (£22).

This dress bares an uncanny resemblances to the one-shouldered Balmain dress which Luisa via Roma sell for €10,773.

This wide shoulder floral tea dress (£15) is gorgeous.

The shoulders resemble both Balmain and Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2009 dresses we saw presented on the runway without the steep price tags.

I really love this dress.   In fact I prefer it to the runway looks.  I’d camp out early for this dress.

This fur coat styled with a thick black waist belt took me back to the Michael Kors Fall 2009 collection full of luxurious pieces.

The Primark coat cost £30.  The Kors coat? A whole lot more.

The sad thing is I bet these beautiful Primark pieces will fly off the shelves before we even get a chance to try them on.

Below is the rest of the Primark Fall 2009 look book which seems to be inspired by Gucci, Lanvin and Balenciaga.

What do you think?  Inspired pieces or cheap imitations?
