Bargain of the week: Mary Katrantzou prints at Primark

Mary Katrantzou's SS12 floral suits
Missed out on the Mary Katrantzou/Topshop collaboration? Well, don't fret, I think a good deal of us didn't get a look in on my favourite designer's work (in my case it was mostly down to the prices: £60 for a scarf? I don't think so!)

First it was Pramark, now it's Pri-Mary: good old Primark have come back with a high street alternative to Mary's fantastic looks. Now some of you may be up in arms about this rather blatant copying but I'm going to succinctly say I don't care. I love Mary but her designs are completely out of my price range and this suit just allows me to pay homage to her work. If I could, I would spend a lot of money supporting young designers but for a many of us fashion followers, it's just not feasible. In the meantime, I'll be telling everyone I know about how my fantastic high street jacket was inspired by one the best designers out there.

Jacket, £25, Primark; Trousers, £16, Primark

What do you think of Primark's copy-catting? Good for High Street fans or bad for the fashion industry?
