London-based German designer Markus Lupfer is one busy dude. Besides running his own line, he was appointed as design director for the Spanish label Armand Basi One in 2006, which he names as his career highlight. Like other designers, Markus took the label in an 80s direction for next season, giving us a dark collection with masculine touches that was reminiscent of Comme des Garçons and Yohji Yamamoto's aesthetic during that decade.
His own line for fall is visibly more commercial, but definitely not boring. If you like sequins but only in moderation, you might get down with one of the sequin print sweaters you can pick up right now at Asos. Apparently this is the second appearance of the sequin lips jumper as it sold out in a flash last time around.
I'm personally a fan of the contrast ruffled appliqué "lost" t-shirt since my head is in the clouds 90% of the time and that crowd print dress is pretty darn rad.
In addition to Asos, Markus has collaborated with Topshop for the past 8 seasons. His pieces for the retailer will be in store in July.
