Primark has done it again.
Known for its impressive “copies” of designer pieces — including the £8 Prada-like slippers we wrote about last month — the budget high street store is currently selling two varieties of floral loafers which look almost identical to a Gucci pair.
However, they cost £8, instead of the £480 the designer slippers will set you back.
The purse-friendly alternatives are available in either a flat black pump, or a backless pink loafer, both of which are adorned with colourful floral embroidery.
Gucci’s classic horsebit loafers have had a revamp over the last couple of years. In 2015, new creative director Alessandro Michele introduced some contemporary and fun elements to the staple shoe, including furry innersoles, and crystal embroidered bows.
The new styles of Gucci backless loafers — or high street versions of them — have been hailed by fashion bloggers as the “it” shoes of 2017.
The Gucci Princetown New Flora slipper is described as “a revamped version of the iconic Flora print by Vittorio Accornero.” Shown below, they cost £480.
