LFW SS18: Markus Lupfer

FAMED for his humorous knitwear, fun surreal prints and embellishment, British designer Markus Lupfer continues to do what he does best in his SS18 collection. The Markus Lupfer girl is spending this season in Palm Springs, laying by the pool with a cocktail in her hand, wearing hot pants with big kaleidoscopic or swirling sunglasses, a turban and chandelier earrings reaching her shoulders or dancing at a party in a see-through dress covered with sequin flowers. She’s glamorous and fun and she never takes off her platform sandals with beaded rainbows or parrots wrapped around her ankles.



The presentation itself felt like a party as the room was filled with white balloons spilling from the ceiling, while models chatted away sitting on beanbags and armchairs covered in the same prints as their clothes. The guests did the same (sans the stylish chairs) while sipping on Tails Cocktails distributed at the bar.


Matching prints like modern-day twinsets were the main takeaway from the collection. Coming in bold bright colours, there were monkeys swinging from blossoming branches, ‘70s wallpaper florals and psychedelic interpretation of Lily of the Valley. Transparent organza skirts were layered over some of these prints creating a sense of intrigue and sexiness.


Elsewhere, white laser-cut skirts and trousers were paired with sporty sweaters or preppy cardigans. As it is Lupfer’s signature, some knitwear had to be included to make the fans happy.
