Oh my god, if you guys don't hate me already, I sincerely hope you do after this post. But this comes from a place of sincerity. The amount of conversations about Zara that occur in Complex office Gchat windows which are then brought IRL qualifies as "staggering." We just love to poke fun at the blatant ripoffs fast fashion giants copy from the runway every season. But when they're priced affordably and are, in actuality, solid knockoffs that aren't exact legally dubious replicas from Fabrixquare, we can only sit back and take it. Also, we're not completely oblivious here at the Pins. We realize our readers aren't clicking through to drop $1,500 of their hard-earned skrilla on a Junya Watanabe patchwork coat because, if we're being really real, sometimes it is something to stunt. So, why not have a toast to the broke boiz and throw some actually attainable goods their way every so often? It can't hurt.
Is this outside our personal brand? Maybe slightly. Don't expect one of these joints the reg (though we actually did one awhile back). This season, Zara has turned out even more banging rips than usual. Bask in the acquirable for a few minutes, then return to the world of luxury. We won't tell.
