MARKUS LUPFER SS16 Collection at London Fashion Week

A barren wasteland comes to life as SS16 embodies the contrasts found in the fertile deserts of Mexico. The idea of endless arid landscapes interrupted by lush nature inspires an image of playful versus moody femininity, reflected in a colour palette of blacks against taupes, light pinks and motifs of cacti with flowers.

Clean A-line shapes play canvas to the flora and fauna of dry climates, with cacti woven graphically in sheer fil coupe and similarly transformed into a print version. 

Rich florals appear throughout the collection, in placement prints featuring graphic flowers on stripes, embroidered on a sheer organza bomber and skirt, 

and in a rustling 3D sequin embellishment resembling a blooming desert, echoed in shoes.

Fusing the light and dark themes of the collection, a motif sees a Mexican luchador in a traditional wrestling mask holding a flower. Evoking the humorous characteristic of Markus Lupfer’s work, the design is used in patch garments, printed on crepe and embroidered in t-shirts.
