Ladies, I hereby start the M&S Spring fashion show. Most speziale.

Tron extra

how to make yourself look completely out of proportion

another Tron inspired dress

the name - conversational umbrella cardigan - is clue enough

naughty nurse wearing a grubby pinny?

over to you....

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

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

seriously considering a name change to conversational umbrella cardigan.

ArbitraryUsername Thu 07-Feb-13 16:02:44

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.

Finding it hard to decide between these two



frumpy with colour

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

I really liked the snakeskin blazer and the umbrella cardi

blush x a million

Shapeless and dull but at least it covers the dress

Emo76 Thu 07-Feb-13 15:34:41

how to make Twiggy look fat

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

Working Girl anyone? the model looks so dejected sad

ArbitraryUsername Thu 07-Feb-13 14:29:49

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

ArbitraryUsername Thu 07-Feb-13 14:28:59

shapeless and snakeskin effect. Lovely.

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.

ArbitraryUsername Thu 07-Feb-13 14:25:39

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).

Ooh I love a Speziale thread!

<settles down with brew and a biscuit>

Hattifattner Thu 07-Feb-13 14:20:07

another photoshop fail

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

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

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

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?

<horrified that the spirit of Per Una has leeched into Limited Collection. Scrubs self with carbolic soap>

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

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....

MrsGeologist Thu 07-Feb-13 14:11:44

grin speziale threads always make me laugh.

Hattifattner Thu 07-Feb-13 14:08:50

not a fashion faux par, more a photoshop fail
