On my recent trek to H&M I stumbled upon this beauty.
No, I mean literally stumbled, then squealed for a bit while my friend and the H&M staff looked on in amusement and embarrassment I'm sure. It's not everyday that you find a pretty decent, not to mention legal imitation of one of the season's most popular designer statement sweaters. And yes, I'm talking about that Kenzo tiger motif sweater which has been snapped up by Tommy Ton more times than I can count. It lacks the iconic logo and there isn't a tiger tail hanging down the back but, as soon as I saw this it just hanging there in H&M amongst woolly jumpers, all that flashed through my mind was the Kenzo sweater and how I'd found a more affordable and still good quality inspired counterpart. And since I had an interview coming up for UCA in Epsom I couldn't think of better investment towards my future, and of course it was worth it because it did receive a few compliments from the fashion journalism course leaders.
The jumper's originally a crop, but I bought it a few sizes bigger so that I could tuck it into my skater skirt, and I don't think my summer tummy ready to b out yet. It's one of those cool and quirky pieces of clothings that you could create numerous outfits with, without it ever getting old, or it could help in adding more excitement to a look. It's only £14.99 but it's not on the website yet, although they'll probably put it up later. Of all the attempts at a tiger jumper this probably the best I've seen so far.
Jumpers range from £165-£500 at Net-a-porter
