Fashion Police Fraud Squad: ‘That’ Kate Moss for Topshop stripe sweater V. Primark’s budget alternative


I’m cheating just a little bit with this one because as you can see, these sweaters are two different colours. They’re both stripe crewnecks with cashmere, though, the two big differences being that one is 100% cashmere while the  other is just 5%, and one is £45 while the other is just £25. So, can you guess which is which?

Well, the sweater on the left is by Kate Moss for Topshop. It contains 5% cashmere but is the more expensive option at £45. The sweater on the right, meanwhile, is Primark’s 100% cashmere offering which is £25. Just goes to show what the Kate Moss name can do to a price tag – although I have to admit to loving those pink and black stripes, and if it wasn’t for the fact that the pink would clash horribly with my hair, I’d be all over it…

    I am afraid to say I really love that Kate Moss jumper. I think it’s the particularly bubblegum pink shade and the contrasting stripes on the sleeves.
    Either way, I sure ain’t paying that much for it!
