A barren wasteland comes to life... The idea of endless arid landscapes interrupted by lush nature inspires an image of playful versus moody femininity.
I could barely wait to show you these pictures that I took of the Marcus Lupfer SS16 presentation at London Fashion Week. It was by far my favourite collection that I got the chance to see first hand, with an absolutely beautiful setting, truly amazing designs and some super funky sunglasses to boot.
The luxe fabrication, clean A-line shapes and a colour palette of harsh blacks against taupes, light pinks, and floral accents really reflects the 'moody femininity' vibes that encapsulate the collection.
I always prefer presentations to actual runway shows as it gives you a chance to get up close and personal to the designs and you can spend as long as you like looking around and soaking up the atmosphere. Marcus Lupfer filled his presentation space with hundreds of flowers scattered around on the floor, which almost gave the effect of the models standing in a meadow.
The luxurious setting offset the beautiful, intricate craftsmanship of the designs. Sheer fabrics, quirky patchwork and sequin embroidery all featured heavily in the collection and you could really see how much effort had gone into designing and crafting each individual item.
