Ok, I know we all love a good M&S bashing thread but I think they have really excelled themselves with this coat...

Game Of Thrones re-enactment perhaps? It would be very useful beyond the Wall...

£189 Yeti tennis

WoW! in both looks and price.

£19 in Asda maybe wink

It look's like Fred Flinstone's outfit. What on EARTH is their bloody problem! It's beyond ridiculous.

Continuing the speziale animale theme, why pick one animal print when you can mash them all up together? Bodycon for extra senzualeness.

Same model. Either photoshop, or all the rest had too much self-respect.

spookyskeleton Thu 19-Sep-13 07:50:01

Wow that dress is awful shock

The model really did get the short straw didn't she?

bootsycollins Thu 19-Sep-13 07:51:31

It looks like something out of Planet of the Apes! grin

Rooners Thu 19-Sep-13 07:58:48

don't buy this

It looks innocent, pretty even. Inside is a little heart label and pink stripy lining. It is all over tiny heart motifs.

Oh my days it's going back.

I don't think the designers have any respect for M&S customers. They're probably told to design something for women of a certain age and come up with something they think their mum might like, or aunt, or neighbour. I suspected Ben de Lisi of the same, when they took over Principles.

VestaCurry Thu 19-Sep-13 08:01:39

If it was actually a onesie, I could persuade myself to buy it (I feel the cold something terrible).9

ExcuseTypos Thu 19-Sep-13 08:14:35

shock

I have no words!

Because I get a bit tired of the M&S bashing on here, I'm linking to something I bought recently. Not sure the website pictures won't make it look hideous in everyone else's eyes, but this IS a nice raincoat:

Do you think that anyone will buy it??!

Bet it will be reduced to £18 within a couple of weeks and still won't sell.

BIWI Thu 19-Sep-13 08:38:19

There is some nice stuff in M&S at the moment. But you wouldn't know it from looking at their website.

nicename Thu 19-Sep-13 08:43:58

Oh wow. Just wow. Sheep costume anyone?

SparkyTGD Thu 19-Sep-13 08:45:20

My eyes! shock

I'm like BIWI and do like some M&S stuff, Limited Collection can be good.

But that is beyond hideous.

ExcuseTypos Thu 19-Sep-13 08:46:40

I agree BIWI. I go in for the food department and usually, walking through the women's clothes makes me feel rather dizzy and nauseous. All those swirly patterns and horrendous colour combinations.

It's not like that anymore. I've not had time for a good look at the clothes, but it's a much calmer place to walk through!

SparkyTGD Thu 19-Sep-13 08:48:45

I like this jumper

miffybun73 Thu 19-Sep-13 08:52:31

Oooh yes, nice jumper SparkyTGH

I think that the really awful stuff all seems to be Per Una/Per Una Speziale.

AthelstaneTheUnready Thu 19-Sep-13 09:01:52

According to the availability, someone who's a size 6 has already bought one.

I can't stop looking at it.

LineRunner Thu 19-Sep-13 09:11:53

"Someone who's a size 6 has already bought one"

That'll be Baldric.

clippityclop Thu 19-Sep-13 09:19:37

Or Sylvester.

Edithmark Thu 19-Sep-13 09:34:38

Nah, it's me that bought it. I'm all sorted for when my PFB is cast as chief sheep in this year's nativity. Oh yes.
