Prada vs. Topshop

It should come as no surprise that one of the most photographed collections for Spring 2011, would be a source of inspiration for other brands.

Topshop has been inspired by Prada’s striped skirt, to produce a similar version at a much lower price.

With stripes and colour-blocking a big trend this season, we’ve spotted Diane Kruger, Lily Allen, Hailee Steinfeld and Street-Style photographer Tamu McPherson in Prada stripes.

The fuchsia and navy striped skirt from Topshop is true to Prada’s design. The stripes appear to be the same size with the fit hitting slightly below the knee of Topshop’s version.

The Prada skirt is approx £395, but TopShop’s skirt is a wallet friendly $66 from Tophop US or £32 from Topshop International.

Prada’s Spring 2011 collection is so hot right now that it has graced 15 covers so far worldwide.

    I can now get my skirt!! as they sold out weeks ago in Prada. From memory the Prada skirt is £395 so a little bit less expensive. It really is stunning with just a plain white cotton skirt.

      Thank you.

      I just ordered this skirt from the Bond Street store. I’ve become obsessed with it

          Hopefully mine won’t take that long as I want to wear it now :)

      Excellent. It would be funny if we bumped into each other during Fashion Week wearing the same skirt

    I don’t order clothes online, and we don’t have a TopShop here in Houston. I would love to have a Prada version, but I just can’t afford it.
