ZARA is definitely one of my favorite places to shop for clothes. A general unassuming vibe carries through the clothes, which have their own characteristics of hue, color, style, moderate patterns you name it.
I am always have a zeal for ZARA’s clothing, and I own a considerable amount of wardrobe staples from ZARA, including outerwear, t-shirts, shirts, jeans, and shoes. I find their approach not to be excessive, but very accessible and likeable.
Today their originality is in dire question. An inquisitive and critical eye has been raised in relation to Kanye West’s latest Yeezy collection, which was characteristically comprised of ample washes and “boxy tees.” Being a keen fan of ZARA and never much of a Yeezy fan, I do want to reach a decisive verdict here.
Where I sensed generally an adamantly and vehemently critical reaction to ZARA and their possible compromise on originality, I felt the bias and sympathy I have for ZARA’s image. Even if ZARA seems complicit in this and does have the most subtle to the most complete resemblance to the Yeezy collection, it reiterates how interdimensional, ubiquitous, and evergreen fashion is.
ZARA reportedly replicated not only one collection but one of several Yeezy collections. The portrayal ethnically and in general of models was reported as a commonality. In terms of the styles, ZARA has been inspired extensively by the raggedy hemmings and distressed sweaters and color palettes utilized in the Yeezy collections of past and present.
Though minute differences still exist, ZARA still stands as an undeniably preferable fashion staples with choice and variety offered. One thing is for certain, ZARA’s prices like a t-shirt of the “boxy” style might range around fifty dollars, compared to the similar counterpart from Yeezy, which would sell for about around four hundred dollars, according to Marc Bain at Quartz. ZARA is more catered to those who enjoy fashion and can afford its reasonable price ranges, and this collection, which is reminiscent of the Yeezy collections in some ways, is called ZARA’s “Streetwise” collection.
