A contemporary take on exploration, Resort 2016 draws inspiration from the modern globetrotter.

While nautical references pay homage to traditional resort-wear, the collection is rooted in the idea of the accessible world for the active woman of today. Delicate graphic shell motifs establish a new sense of pretty, contrasted by boyish expressions in detailing of garments and the collection’s structured silhouette, giving life to a youthful and cool femininity with a natural toughness.

A ship-themed print mimics the traditional tattoos of sailors, while an ML logo jacquard featuring meteorology symbols add new life to global travel and navigation icons.
 Illustrating the garments’ dynamic between the sporty and the luxe, richly embroidered pieces easily transform into daywear when paired with a glitter trainer, summing up the nature of the collection. Drawing on that same notion, the starry night effect of a constellation print adds a sense of sparkle to casual pieces, elevating the look.

 Casual knitwear appears in graphic candy stripes and patch worked cashmere, and outerwear is given a more refined expression through detailing and fabrication. The meeting between sheer and non-sheer, featured throughout the collection demonstrates a tougher Markus Lupfer girl.
