Slogan tees, novelty sweaters, sparkle everywhere: These have been the cornerstones of Markus Lupfer’s aesthetic in the past. He hatched what he called a more “refined, off-duty look” a couple seasons back, but for Pre-Fall his approach is his most sophisticated yet. A series of strong work-to-party looks came in a snow-capped mountain jacquard, while another series in matellasé resembled bits of confetti. Prints are a new strength for Lupfer, evidenced by a charming circus-horse motif that appeared on key pieces. As impressive were a wool skirt and top meticulously hand-sewn with oversize crystals. A versatile stadium coat had touches of teddy bear material sourced from Steiff, the iconic German stuffed toy company, making Lupfer’s the most authentic teddy bear coat we have yet to see.
