Oh, Gucci! How you’ve stolen my heart.
When asked for a list of my favourite designer brands Gucci has never appeared in my top 10, until their Fall / Winter catwalk came into my life. Since then I have lusted over the collection time and time again, I’ve wished I could afford their beautiful prints, brighter shades and frill-filled pieces! For me, they just kicked it out of all the ballpark making many other brand’s collections slightly forgettable.
Luckily for those of us whose purse-strings cannot stretch to the hefty price tag of Gucci but have been lustfully scrolling through Net-a-Porter dreaming, the Autumn / Winter collections on the highstreet have a heavy influence from the designer brand. For me, Zara, Topshop and Glamorous have some of the most impressive dupes for pieces seen on the catwalk, meaning even us twentysomethings who struggle to pay our rent some months can afford the Gucci-feel.
Highstreet pieces (bottom line): 1. Missguided Coat £40 // 2. Zara Bomber Jacket £59.99 // 3. Milk It (via Asos) Jacket £48 // 4. Glamorous (via Asos) Jeans £39 //5. Asos Blouse £36
1. Glamorous Skirt // 2. Topshop Shoes // 3. Marks & Spencer Jumper // 4. Zara Bag
