FASHION REPETITION: MIU MIU VS. URBAN OUTFITTERS
We can all vouch on the fact that multi-retailer chains have habitually created products succeeding luxury brands to yield the profits from lower income consumers. In the era of fashion giants such as Forever 21, Zara and H&M – Urban Outfitters does not fall short from the list. Even with the markup of assorted brands under Urban Outfitters, the interpreted versions continue to hit the shelves. If you’re not making six figures, it’s safe to say you’re purchasing these copycat products to satisfy your fashion prickle. Below is the duplicated Miu Miu sandals from Urban, while to your right is the classic jeweled Miu Miu heel. The pair from Urban Outfitters: Cooperative Jeweled Heel will cost you $59 while the authentic pair from Miu Miu: Jeweled Heel Mary Jane will cost you sixteen times the amount at $990. Currently, the pair on Urban Outfitters is sold out. You can still buy the genuine Miu Miu ones on Net-A-Porter for only $850.
