Fashion Repetition: The Mother of Pearl White Perrin Sweatshirt
With over two thousand stores in 88 countries around the globe, Zara churns and spits out nearly identical articles of contemporary and luxury brands in less than a month after a runway show. In some verified cases, it has taken as little as two weeks to go from concept to a store shelf.
In less than five weeks, Zara has already released its version of the Mother of Pearl White Perrin Sweatshirt. With similar features of a high round neck and a contrasting black and white ribbed trim, the Perrin sweater sports sequin embellishments at the front. With only a slightly different version, Zara’s own construction has a thin black line across the sweatshirt, a simple boat neck and a black ringed collar.
Mother of Pearl’s Spring 2015 ladylike collection consisted of prints and embellishments with color-field paintings based on painter Chris Moon’s work. With the two next to one another, can you tell which one is priced at $695?
