When we heard that Marcus Lupfer and Whistles were collaborating, the anticipation began to rise.
Whistles is the darling of the British high street and is enjoying its renaissance moment. Marcus Lupfer’s playful take on popular culture is like, totes amaze! There’s even a sequinned merino wool sweater to that effect in the current collection. Imagine what it could have been if these two worlds collided.
Keep imagining. There’s not a sequin in sight.
This fourteen piece collection is best described as Whistles reinterpreted by Marcus Lupfer. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but if you were expecting to be dazzled by decoration, you might feel slightly underwhelmed.
These pieces are Marcus Lupfer relaxed and stripped bare. Cozy and casual -woollen accessories and sumptuous silk pjs say cuddle me, cherish me and keep me warm. Which is great. But unexpected.
