Blimey. That last shocker reminds me of Elle Driver's coat in Kill Bill.


Vegas magician meets the boardroom

Model looks suitably suicidal

The ubiquitous shell suit fabric of the early 90's is back

I really like the bonkers umbrella cardi....

Does 'conversational' in this context imply that it will make people talk to you? Because if I saw someone wearing that I'd avoid them like the plague.

Rooneyisalwaysmoaning Thu 07-Feb-13 12:57:25

Oh sorry Mrs RK blush

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Thu 07-Feb-13 12:58:50

It's fine!


I had no intention of actually buying it...!!

Oh god perhaps my time has come. sad

I really like the grubby pinny and tron jacket.

GetOrf Thu 07-Feb-13 13:01:41

Po that is fantastic. Who thought those tights would go with that Boden inspired skirt and WHY those hideous MIL boots?

grin speziale threads always make me laugh.

Hattifattner Thu 07-Feb-13 14:11:50

i look at this and think, What designer would puposely create something where the seams are on show (not to mention the wrong side of the fabric) - These are not just clothes, these are M&S clothes....

Just search for "speziale print" and you're onto a loser winner.

Love how it is called the Limited Collection classic collar floral blouse, like the - y'know - product marketer has lost the will to live. Why is gaudy and nipple reminiscent flower print not in the name?

The email was enough, I don't think I dare look at these links.

ElvisIsKing Thu 07-Feb-13 14:20:04

My heart always leaps for joy as soon as I read that word 'speziale' in a thread title and, as ever, I am not disappointed

MustafaCake Thu 07-Feb-13 14:21:22

Ooh I love a Speziale thread!

<settles down with brew and a biscuit>

I really like the silly umbrella cardi too. I think it's a bit Zooey deschanel. grin

And I think the out of proportion dress could look good on people with a different figure to me (on whom it would look atrocious).

FellatioNels0n Thu 07-Feb-13 14:25:49

Oh dear God, that flowery skirt with the black tights and the ankle boots. shock

I think their stylist secretly hates them and is having a laugh.

There are some lovely matching cropped trousers to go with the snakeskin tent.

MonaLotte Thu 07-Feb-13 15:23:35

Working Girl anyone? the model looks so dejected sad

Oh god, kick me out of the fashion treads now.

I really liked the snakeskin blazer and the umbrella cardi

blush x a million

SoggySummer Thu 07-Feb-13 15:52:53

Finding it hard to decide between these two



frumpy with colour

You could get both for your grandmother.

I think the issue with the umbrella cardi (and anything else that could look good in the right circumstances) is the dreadful and inappropriate styling. It's like they have no idea what people would actually do with any of the clothes.

scripsi Thu 07-Feb-13 16:36:00

seriously considering a name change to conversational umbrella cardigan.

PretzelTime Thu 07-Feb-13 16:51:52

Speziale time! FINALLY.
I kinda like the umbrella cardi too...
