Yeah but no but… you must be joking! Gucci is mocked over a £1,800 nylon shell suit that echoes Vicky Pollard’s signature look
- High-end brand have released the multi-coloured shell suit made from nylon
- The jacket retails at £1, 050, while the trousers come with a hefty £740 price tag
- Speaking of the tracksuit, one shopper wrote: ‘You must be joking…not worth it’
Gucci has been slammed for selling a shell suit similar to the one Vicky Pollard wore in Little Britain – and it’ll set shoppers back a whopping £1, 800.
The high-end Italian brand describes the over-sized garment, which is crafted in lightweight nylon, as featuring elasticated cuffs and ‘loose bottoms.’
And while the daring ensemble originally evolved from the late Eighties and early Nineties, shopping enthusiasts took to Twitter to suggest it should have been left there.
‘Gucci is selling a ‘Vicky Pollard’ shell suit that costs £1.8k…you must be joking. Not worth it,’ wrote one, while another said: ‘It looks as if a bunch of Brits robbed a Gucci store and went to the beach to celebrate.’

The ‘retro active-wear’ is sold in two parts – the ‘oversized waterproof nylon jacket’ has a hefty £1,050 price tag, and features a sporty play on the emblematic logo, which they claim the interlocking G patch ‘enriches the style.’
Meanwhile, the ‘waterproof nylon track bottoms,’ which also comes in multicolour intarsia which is contrasted with a green nylon base, will set you back £740.
Popular character Vicky Pollard – played by Matt Lucas – was often seen in her bright pink zip-up jacket and matching tracksuit bottoms.
The moody teen, renowned for her ‘Yeah, but no…catchphrase,’ completed the sporty look with a bulky gold chain and wore her hair half-up and half-down.

While the Gucci shell suit is only available to buy in-store in Monaco, Barcelona, Switzerland and Germany, it can still be bought online in the UK.
Earlier this year, the luxury designer caused quite a stir among fashionista by selling a pair of £615 ‘clown clogs,’ which can only be described as a sandal and trainer hybrid.
Complete with a red toe and trainer toggles, the beige footwear, which is designed for men, even has the Gucci logo emblazoned on the Velcro strap.
But eager shoppers were’t convinced the new releases should be something to be proud of – and have taken to social media to blast the eclectic sandals.
‘Maybe not being rich ain’t that bad,’ joked one, while another penned: ‘With that price it should have twin turbo rocket boosters.’
