Autumn is in @ Zara

Zoom
August 18, 2014

Hey! I have an idea. Let’s play a game called Spot the Collection where every time you notice a trend imported directly from a luxury runway of Fall, you apply deodorant, hit your hand on your desk and comment under this post detailing the garment shown vs. the one it emulates.

I can go first if you want:

a. Deodorant applied

b. Hand hit (and hurt)

c. Marc Jacobs and Céline ribbed knits as seen in images 4, 5 and on the shop page of Zara.com.

K, now you.

(Also, though, let’s talk about your feelings. Do you like this look book? I, for one, think it could have been better if not because it’s looking a little too atheltic what with its parkas and sweatpants and nylon zip-ups, then certainly because the up-for-sale, fall-centric items that flourish on the shop pages put these ones to shame.)

    I totally agree with it looking a bit athletic. Personally, I love a good autumn coat (especially if it’s camel), but I can’t stand anything that looks like it belongs in a gym that isn’t Nike tights.. Don’t even get me started on the ‘Norts’, haha.

    The fact that it has no prints gives it a character ”oh, I didn’t mean to copy high fashion designers but my cuts definetely show my sheer intension”. But, you know to people who love fashion, zara is the best way out cause is still affordable. And everyone knows that when you’re rockin’ it, you’re surely gonna be copy-pastied, it’s only a matter of time and skills. :/

    If only the quality of zara clothes would be better. But since it sucks…I’m not going to buy anything.

    The stretchy look isn’t for me. I’m more of jeans and white linen shirt gal.

  • Lena

    I love it!! I can’t imagine my wardrobe without side striped pants and athletic shoes. http://styling-on-the-edge.com/2014/02/17/chalayan-trench-and-sports/

  • Hereshoping Themayanswereright

    The athletic pieces are so homely.

  • Frederique

    i’m honestly kind of disappointed. this collection looks uninspired and they could have done much better. meh

  • jessi

    Love all these looks, definitely need to go for a shop at Zara

    Tbh i think everyone plays spot the designer at zara but buy from there anyway so ¯_(ツ)_/¯ but personally i liked their last fall lookbook more than this one…meh

    I LOVE THOSE PANTS

  • http://www.otisunfiltered.blogspot.com/ Allison

    I’m all for minimalism, but it looks a little too familiar and overdone. Especially since the fabrics aren’t even luxe.

    You are so right. I am not so sure I´ll be shopping in ZARA this autumn.

    Basic is the new black?

  • bbrautkleid

    i love this book .but how can i buy it?

  • ilze

    Ugh. While I’m forced to wear this stupid copy-paste shit I think I better stop reading MR and get back to studying so I can be fucking smart, get rich as fuck and wear some actual fucking designer clothes and make you all proud, fellas. (also do some philanthropy, what am I, an animal?) Fuck you, Zara

  • Georgia

    Nice outfits but are a little bit more sporty than I wear. May be are good for the weekend :)

  • Celeste

    Yeah… I’ll take the Celine ribbed knits over this any (fall) day. If not because of the actual clothes then certainly due to the appeal of the campaign.

  • Cristina Feather

    I spot a lot of Derek Lam in the cuts and knits, Marc Jacobs, Celine, Stella McCartney in the knits, Altuzarra in the coats & colors (pic 18).. but that’s just what Zara does and that’s exactly why the man behind it (Amancio Ortega) is one of the richest people on the planet. I love & respect the minds behind the true designs, but as I can’t reach them, I will probably use Zara instead.

    I’m not so fond of the campaign images but I dig the sporty style.

  • Ajnira Muminovic

    well there are some stuff that are good, others as u said its a copycat, not big fan of that :/

    I’d rather wait for Alexander Wang x hm and get something really nicely priced of really nice quality & design! (And that not everyone around the world will have as it sells out in a few hrs)! ;)

  • http://www.solesatisfactionblog.com/ Kate

    Agreed. While I like some of these pieces (I personally am digging the sporty pant look, perhaps because it’s the most athletic I’m ever gonna get), I’ve found others I like infinitly more – that slouchy nude cowl-neck sweater and a chic and simple gold-accented black coat – on the rest of the site. Perhaps I’m just not high fashion enough, but I stick what I like and what works for me, trends be damned. Well, most of the time.

  • AlexaJuno

    We know what Zara is. Zara knows what Zara is. What’s the point of picking apart Zara for being what it is? If I can’t afford the real stuff (and believe me, I can’t) I’m glad there’s at least one store within my reach carrying something even remotely comparable.

    The sporty stuff mostly isn’t my taste, but I love the juxtaposition of it against the classic chicness of the coats. It feels like normcore and high fashion met somewhere in the middle.

  • Sosolala

    Soooo creative… Why dont they try to come up with something themselves??

  • Alexandra Puffer

    I’ll never be down with athletic wear – the closest I got was timberland-y wedge sneakers in 2012, but I do love the featured pleats & oversized tops. My Fall 2014 inspo board is here: http://www.pinterest.com/alexandrapuffer/fall-2014/

    Warm regards,

    I’ll keep this in mind for next year’s autumn. The benefit of living in the other hemisphere is that I can see it ALL well in advance.

  • Kerry

    I tried to buy several of the knits but they are on back order. For those of us that can’t buy the Celine…Zara works for me! I love the blue parka too.

  • Wanderlust

    What experience have you had ordering from Zara? I ordered a jacket from them, and the one that arrived was both defective AND marked down; yet I had been charged full price for it. I filled out their return request form on the website and dropped the jacket at UPS to ship back… only to have Zara email me 24 hours later that I was not authorized to return the jacket until they had determined that it was in fact defective, and they had approved the return (they wanted me to send them pictures). Has anyone else been bitten by this?
