Primark has caused a stir with yet another purse-friendly
version of a popular – and pricey – designer piece.
The fast-fashion retailer has released a bargain blush pink
jacket that is a dead ringer for one by Acne, a cult label
loved by celebs and style bloggers alike.
While the Scandanavian brand’s lamb shearling version will set
you back £2,106, for just £25 fashion fiends can pick up a
cut-price faux fur version from Primark.
The high street store shared the new addition on its Instagram
account, branding it the ‘must-have’ piece for winter, and fans
were quick to brand it the ‘coat of dreams’.
Primark’s new shearling jacket made its debut on the site’s
Instagram page which is a dead ringer for Acne Studio’s own

Thousands of fans have already liked the image of the coat,
with plenty posting online to say they’d mentally added it to
their shopping lists.
‘Omg this jacket is so nice, I need it in my life,’ gushed one.

A third said: ‘Oh cute, I like a bit of shearling!’
It comes after Primark unveiled a new winter collection of
on-trend coats, none of them costing more than £40.
While many shoppers anticipate having to fork out upwards of a
£100 on the seasonal season staple, Primark had fans rejoicing
with its bargain range.
The coats, which range from cosy pink faux fur ones to
Burberry-esque vinyl black wraps, cost between £30 and

It’s not the first time Primark has sparked a shopping frenzy
with a cheaper version of high-end designs.
In June it unveiled an £8 version of Gucci’s iconic £530
slip-on loafers a month after causing a shopping frenzy with a
version of £470 Prada mules, at the same low price.
Last month, it also launched a range of perfumes of six unisex
fragrances, The Private Collection, costing from £3 for a 20ml
Fragrances such as Rose Oud, Pomegranate & Black Tea are
said to be similar to the Jo Malone scents, which cost £44 for
a 30ml bottle.
