Blackduck Sat 03-Oct-09 12:07:04

I realise how out of touch I am when I see things like this!! grin

PuppyMonkey Sat 03-Oct-09 12:08:19

Yuk. Funny reviews though. grin

"cheap and nasty material"

FabBakerGirlHasHadEnough Sat 03-Oct-09 12:08:49

Doesn't get good reviews.

Restrainedrabbit Sat 03-Oct-09 12:10:23

Am I alone in thinking that Per Una is just, well, weird ? Who is it targeted at?

mrstimlovejoy Sat 03-Oct-09 12:15:54

people with no taste its awful

tulpe Sat 03-Oct-09 12:17:28

OMG that is hideous. I don't get it either.

Perhaps it is an attempt to work the Vivienne Westwood/All Saints modern take on ruffles and bustles? But whoever thought that fabric, length and style would be bought by anyone needs a serious reality check.

Scary to think someone has been paid to actually "design" that.

AllThreeWays Sat 03-Oct-09 12:30:55

Oh dear now embarrassing......I really like it blush

DelGirl Sat 03-Oct-09 12:34:28

I knew it would be per una before I opened the link. What are they thinking? Taken a leaf out of vivien westwood's book I think. Can't stand her either. (like I know anything about fashion) I so don't, but I know I don't 'get her'

DelGirl Sat 03-Oct-09 12:35:04

lol, just seen tulpe's post lol

Amandoh Sat 03-Oct-09 12:36:08

Yes, my immediate thought was "Poor man's Westwood."

It's just a mess isn't it? The pose is very odd too. Looks like the model was snapped doing a hoe down. What's even more shocking is that it's not even the worst skirt in the range. Take a look at this montrosity. Actually; don't.

Someone must be buying this stuff thought I. So, I had a Google to see if I could find them and I think I've tracked her down....

She starts: "As an activist for the Per Una brand..." More here if you can be arsed.

ClaudiaSchiffer Sat 03-Oct-09 12:41:03

Oh my eyeeeeeeeeeees Amandoh, that is hideous.

Quite like the other one - shame it's cheap nylon. But then I like Westwood stuff.

Restrainedrabbit Sat 03-Oct-09 12:41:05

OMG that is VILE!!

tulpe Sat 03-Oct-09 12:44:59

OMFG. Amandoh....there should be a public health warning on that skirt. I am not sure I will ever recover from that.

And as for that guide written by the Per Una Activist, my favourite bit was :

*"I hope all of this isn't too mind blowing, and I hope you now have a complete understanding of the Per-Una label at Marks & Spencer."*

Hmmm.....yes, indeed. Not at all mind blowing and how incredibly sad that you appear to have made it your life's work to decipher and define

Amandoh Sat 03-Oct-09 12:49:56

I laughed at that bit too Tulpe.

I hoped you clicked "Yes" as to whether or not you found the information helpful or not. I did.

LittleWhiteWolf Sat 03-Oct-09 12:50:13

WTF? That gold skirt teamed with a black top and heels says one reviewer. Well if you want to go out looking like a bumblebee... maybe she bought it for Hallowe'en???

I had a per una skirt once upon a time. It was nice and simple. Why has it gone all weird???

NorbertDentressangle Sat 03-Oct-09 12:54:08

OMG! That yellow long skirt would make you like a giant inflatable banana

Amandoh Sat 03-Oct-09 12:58:09

The court shoes aren't helping are they? Not that I can think of any footwear that would.

Ooh, ooh. I know!


Restrainedrabbit Sat 03-Oct-09 14:11:22

And the price £89.50 for THAT - <wanders of, wondering what the world is coming too>

SqueezyCheese Sat 03-Oct-09 14:17:45

Boak. Some things you just can't unsee.

janeite Sat 03-Oct-09 15:47:02

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh my EYES. That yellow thing is quite probably the most hideous thing I have ever seen.

SausageRocket Sat 03-Oct-09 15:49:50

Jesus H Tapdancing Christ that gold Per Una thing is terrifying.

lal123 Sat 03-Oct-09 15:51:51

It looks suspiciously like that yellow thing comes with a matching jacket????? I can see it as a "school run outfit".....

mrstimlovejoy Sat 03-Oct-09 23:07:05

great if you want to look like a ferrero rocher
