Markus Lupfer has this ability to completely transport you to whatever inspired the collection, over the year’s we’ve had a 90s teen girl’s bedroom, Mexican vibes, and the local ‘caff’, and for spring/summer 2018 it seems that we will all be decadently lounging around a swimming pool as the Markus Lupfer girl is “part old-Hollywood, part new disruptor, a Slim Aarons muse, but with much more attitude”.
As you would expect the collection was bright, a little naughty, with mischievous monkeys seen swinging from vines on the print used on everything from the cabana shirt dresses to pool turbans and even the set’s furniture.
Highlights included psychedelic floral-printed blouses tucked into matching pleated georgette skirts that featured a sheer black organza overlay for added glamour, while retro swimming caps inspired the sheer skirts and blouses adorned with pink and blue sequinned flowers, and the vibrant orange print popped against the green, pink and blue hues.
Accessories have also been updated with the sunglasses continuing to be large in nude and navy blue colours, while platform heels were fastened with straps in the shape of sequinned rainbows and jewelled parrots, and the earrings dangle to the collarbone.
As always I left hoping one day to become a true Markus Lupfer girl and praying that they start selling this gorgeous furniture!!!
