Markus Lupfer showed one of our favourite collections of London Fashion Week thus far. There was a lot to parse in every look: belts fashioned out of braided hiking cord, leggings with side stripes layered under skirts and sloping-shouldered coats with crystal embellishment on their sleeves. The collection took its cue from menswear with the use of suiting, and athleticism was also key but, despite this, the clothes remained undeniably feminine. The Arctic seems to be on everyone's minds this season perhaps due to the increased awareness of the effects of global warming, and Lupfer's prints like Anya Hindmarch's, included polar bears and, as was also seen at Thom Brown's show, penguins.
