Easy, breezy fits and bunny prints take over Markus Lupfer this SS17.
It’s Rabbit Season
The Easter bunny has come early this year, making a cameo appearance in Markus Lupfer’s SS17 collection. The collection was filled with prints galore, from vivid navy and red stripes to a hopping bunny print. The unique print featured on many outfits from pajama style tops to skirts. Sticking with the light, breezy feel of the collection, the colour palette ranged from eggshell pastels to a light use of navy and black.
Florals in spring? Obviously! Markus’ pieces consisted of glorious floral prints bursting with colours and making us feel like a garden pixie – but with an attitude. He strategically placed the print on black pieces for a striking contrast, but kept it summery and seductive with sheer fabrics. Another big theme of the collection was the use of bold belts. Many of the pieces were tied (literally) together with chained belts, with one belt being made into a navy faux peplum for that extra wow factor.
Oh, I Just Threw This On
“I didn’t even plan this outfit” is what you’re going to be saying while slipping on one of these lovely garms. Markus kept it super easy and comfortable this season with loose fitting shapes, perfectly achieving that effortlessly stylish look. Maxi dresses were loose, but kept feminine with frill details and sultry slits. Pleats were seen on many of the pieces, making an appearance on dresses and the chicest length maxi skirts. Loose fit coats were styled off one shoulder for that super blasé, fashionable look. The softness of the collection was contrasted by tough-girl styling; mesh socks, chokers and rainbow hued, apple shaped sunglasses made these models into that cool, stylish girl that we all strive to be.
