Stella McCartney Look-a-likey!

Every season the amazing clothes that big designers produce is used as inspiration for high street brands.  I’ve been doing a bit of hoking around and found some look-a-likes.

Stella McCartney 

By far one of the hottest collections for Spring/Summer 2011 (take a look at my previous post Tutti-Frutti prints, https://belfash.wordpress.com/2011/04/20/tutti-frutti-prints-for-summertime/ for more inspiration!). I loooove these citrus prints, so fresh and summery.

I like the print on this NEW LOOK dress, however I think the shape is a bit uninspiring (a prom dress, really?).  With so many amazing new shapes on the catwalk I think NEW LOOK have been lazy with this design.

I think PRIMARK have done a far superior job in their lemon-print dress.  The print is gorgeous and I love the way the top half of the dress is woven diagonally.  At £9.00 you have no excuse for not buying it!

The print on this ZARA blouse, £29.99 is a bit too much leaves and butterflies and not enough fruit for my liking.  However I’m glad someone had designed something other than a dress from McCartneys inspiration.

On my hunt I also found these two cuties!  Orange Resin Ring, £8.00 and Large Citrus Pendant, £20.00 from http://www.jijikiki.com.

Hope you liked this! I’m going to try to do a BELFASH LOOK soon,  I can’t at the minute though as I’m all sick with a tummy bug :(.  But I’m sure I’ll be better soon.  Any suggestions just comment on my facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002252247478.

Tutti-Frutti prints for summertime.

This season, Carmen Miranda inspired prints exploded on to the Catwalk (don’t know who Carmen Miranda is? I didn’t either until I typed her name into google images http://tinyurl.com/43f5nt3‘ohhh yeaaah that fruit-head lady!’)

Banana print was featured in PRADA’s 2011 spring/summer show (if you can’t tell already, I love PRADA.)

I came across a fashion illustration blog called www.gattobravo-miao.com,  it’s so cute check it out.  Here’s their interpretation of PRADA’s fruit prints:

I want to start illustrating my favorite catwalk shows – it looks like so much fun!

Stella McCartney’s Spring/Summer collection featured zesty citrus fruits.

 Fruit print is now on the high-street (: – here’s a few I like.

Banana print T-shirt, £18.00 from ASOS.com and lemon print prom dress, £29.99 from NEW LOOK.

Banana print shorts, £12.00 from TOPSHOP.

 

Lemon ‘fruit post’ earrings (they also come in apple and strawberry!), £6.50, URBAN OUTFITTERS.  Banana earrings, £6.00, TOPSHOP.
