Valencia - Fab Fashion Find No.2

While in Valencia I discovered a new label within the famous Spanish department store El Corte Inglés - Sfera seem to be a little bit like the Spanish Topshop. Every item I saw resembled something from the designer spring/summer catwalk collections - and all were reasonably priced, à la Topshop. This coat really stood out for me - it was almost identical to the designs shown by Burberry Prorsum (see my post from last week). The bell-sleeve detail, ruffled rounded collar, a replica design - all that was missing, the buttons, which you could easily replace. How much was the jacket you may ask? €75 - £51 - $99, a superb price when you consider that for the original Burberry Prorsum you'd have to fork out €1,160 - £795 - $1,550! I know the quality of the photo isn't that great but I can assure you the first thing I thought when I saw it was, "Burberry". The downside - they didn't have it in my size, aarrrrgghh! There was one jacket left in a large and unfortunately was just too big on the shoulders for me (just my luck!). Check out the Sfera website - which unfortunately isn't updated as often as the items instore and definitely seek out a Sfera the next time you're in Spain.

I really think the bell sleeves are gorgeous. These coats are real practical, but they are very pretty.
