Although we clamour over the latest designer fashion buys as much as the next person, we’re also big fans of saving money.

So it’s always nice to spot a fashion steal from a high street retailer.

This time, it’s thanks to Primark. The cheap-as-chips store has announced the launch of a new embroidered loafer that looks suspiciously similar to a best-selling Gucci style.

The only difference is the price. While Gucci’s retail for a whopping £530, Primark’s backless style come in at only £8.

They both feature the same colour scheme (pink, purple and blue) as well as the iconic gold horsebit buckle.

Gucci’s design comes from the Italian brand’s SS17 collection. The slip-on style has a “richly detailed metallic jacquard finish” and are recommended to be worn with a brocade coat and chiffon blouse.

Primark isn’t the only high street retailer to cop on to Gucci’s much-loved aesthetic.

Office sell a yellow brocade pair of loafers for only £69 while ASOS is taking great inspiration from Gucci’s colourful printed bags.

Hopefully, Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele is only too happy to see his work worn by the masses.
