Who wants to be classic when you can be bold and current?
It takes a true creative, innovator, genius to turn something seemingly mundane and unremarkable into something special. Valentino did it with the colour red, Chanel did it with the LBD and now Markus Lupfer has done it with the all black look. Sure black has always been considered versatile, slimming and minimalistic, but those are exactly the same group of words that have always used to describe the all black look, like one long conveyor belt of cliché labels. But in Lupfer’s hands, being the brave innovator he is (let’s not forget the men’s skirt), he has taken the classic look and completely reinvented it into something bold, fresh and very current. I loves the use of quilt panels on jumpers, PVC on jumpsuits, contrasting sleeves on bombers and layered panelling on parkas.
