Stella McCartney’s floral print jumpsuit: words fail us

Jumpsuit_3

Forgive us.

We know that lots of you love your jumpsuits, and, indeed, we’re happy to concede that most jumpsuits are not crimes of fashion – or at least, not on this scale, anyway.

When Stella McCartney created this jumpsuit, though, God only knows what kind of buyer she had in mind. People who aim never to have sex again, perhaps? Heather Mills? Who knows. All we can say is that even the mannequin has turned her back on the camera, for shame at being seen in this thing. And what’s with the dangly bits under the crotch, Stella? It makes the jumpsuit look like it’s peeing itself, and that’s rarely a good thing, we find.

Are you ready for the real kicker, though? This little beauty will set you back £765. Seven. Hundred. And. Sixty. Five. Pounds. That’s around $1530, for the benefit of those of you across the pond. Gulp.

So, tell us: who do you think Stella had in mind when she made this? Was it you?

    oh my goodness.
    this reminds me of something that could have been found in my grandparent’s dress-ups they had for the grandkids.
    which, basically consisted of the clothing my aunts and uncles rejected after the seventies and eighties.
    does it come across that they had reasons for throwing them out?
    like strings hanging from the crotch?
    that’s a good reason…

    Golden Girls. Enough said.
    P.S. Thanks for the conversion! 😀

    I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
    I wouldn’t wear that to clean my house in. And for that price, you can get bent!

    Finally designers have tapped into the long overlooked genre: hunting gear!
