Markus Lupfer SS17 for me was an Alice in Wonderland pretty grunge retelling. Imagine her emerging into Wonderland after chasing the rabbit down the hole, and she pulls herself together the best way she can. Her hair is wet, and she uses what she can find to tie her clothes made up of graphic florals and playful animal prints, a little tighter around her. Debris from flowers and grass from the fall down the hole are now embellishments. Her shades are slightly bent, and her skirt is crinkled, and rocks have crystallised on her sliders.
Well that’s how like to think of the collection. The Markus Lupfer vision was actually about nature taking over. Offset against a stark warehouse with spurts of greenery, moss and flowers, there was a contrast of styles from feminine frills to sporty rain jackets tied around waists.
