Burberry Prorsum vs. Topshop

Emma Watson was spotted arriving back at her hotel after attending Harvey Weinstein’s Pre-BAFTA Party at Almada Club in Mayfair last week.

She was rocking a beige Burberry trench coat with contrasting leather sleeves from their new Spring 2011 range which would retail at approx £1,795/$2,795.

The classic coat with an edge had been recreated by Topshop at a fraction of the price.

Check out Topshop US and Topshop International for a more affordable option.

Apart from the price the other difference is that Emma’s Burberry version has a leather collar as well as leather sleeves.

Halston vs. ASOS

The Spring 2010 red Halston boat neck epaulette dress was presented during New York Fashion Week.

We’ve seen it worn twice on the red carpet by Jennifer Lopez and Alexis Bledel.

The popular dress has been used for inspiration by ASOS as they have a very similar ASOS tailored drummer girl tulip dress on their virtual shelves in 3 colours.

The dresses share the same colour, tulip pleated skirt and epaulette detailing, but the ASOS version has added military style button detailing.

The Halston version would set you back $1,326.50 as it was reduced in the Net-A-Porter US sale, whereas the ASOS version is a mere $79.30.

Givenchy vs. French Connection

Whilst on my lunch break yesterday I walked past French Connection on Oxford Street in London and saw a dress in the window which immediately made me think of a similar dress from the Givenchy Spring 2010 collection.

It a similar colour, it drapes the same way and they both have embellished shoulders.

The difference of course will be the price.

French Connection sell their version for £110, whilst the Givenchy dress no doubt cost thousands.

Stella McCartney vs. Karen Millen

The Stella McCartney Resort collection was very popular and included many lace pieces.

Walking into my local Karen Millen store recently I notice they also have many lace pieces, but it was this Karen Millen lace jacket which caught my eye.

Both jackets have the same shrunken french lace three quarter length sleeves, the same contrasting nude lining and the same scallop edging.

The main difference is that the McCartney jacket has a solid banded waistband.

As if by coincidence Charlize Theron and Thandie Newton have both been spotted wearing the Stella McCartney lace jacket this week.

Burberry Prorsum vs. Lipsy

We were all very excited to watch the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 presentation as it was beamed live via the internet last September.

We drooled over the updated trenches which had twists, ruching and came in cute pastel colours.

A knotted Burberry Prorsum trench from Net-A-Porter’s international would set you back £2,395.

Lipsy London have been inspired by the Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 collection to present their own Lipsy ruched shoulder mac which will only set you back £70.

Prices to suit all pockets.
