Designer vs High Street: Chanel vs Zara

You know it’s not just the lower end of the high street stores that love ripping off designer pieces. Zara makes most of its money imitating the designer collections with an emphasis on higher quality than you would get in say Forever 21 or the others. Most of the time it’s just imitating what the designers sent down the runway and sometimes it goes a little over the line into copying.

As for which side of the line this cute mini city bag from Zara falls is up to you to decide, but you can’t deny the similarities. I personally prefer the real deal but I have to admit the Zara bag is cute and a cheap alternative to Chanel’s iconic boxy messenger bag.
