Meet the Designer : Markus Lupfer

While today’s look might not be as colorful as a couple of last week’s looks (examples here and here), it is just as quirky! And around here, as you might have noticed, we like quirky fashion! And nobody does quirky like British designer Markus Lupfer.

Known for his fun approach to fashion, Markus Lupfer imbues designs with charm and wit. He has become known for his elevated, anything-but-basic everyday knitwear embellished with sequins embroidery. In fact, embroidered sequined lips (like those shown here) have become his calling card. But his playful designs run the gambit of themes.

His signature wearable knitwear is bound to bring a smile both to the face of the wearer and to the face of anyone with whom you come in contact! All this quirkiness combined with wearability has earned him a bit of a cult following. Indeed, celebrities such as Beyonce, Katy Perry, Olivia Palermo, and many others have been known to don his fun knits.

What to Expect Around Here This Week 

Now, as for what you can expect around here this week… We have a full schedule! In fact, if you recall, last week I hinted at the fact that we’d be increasing the quantity of content around here this year. Well, this week marks the first week of that increased amount of content publishing!

Starting today, you can expect two new pieces of content published here each week day. Each morning, you can expect a fashion feature. And then, each afternoon you can expect an in-depth article. That afternoon in-depth article might be fashion-related, travel-related, food-related, wellness-related, or something along those lines. As always, you can expect any subject to be approached from a colorful, modern, happy standpoint.

      • Side note: you’ll be seeing an extra dose of Houston guides around here over the next few weeks. That’s because Houston is playing host to the Super Bowl in early February! With so many people visiting Houston for the game, we want to be sure to provide plenty of inside opinions as to what to see and do here.
