I'm not usually one for motifs, or colour in fact, but that's starting to change and 3.1. Phillip is responsible. Ever since Elin Kling sported his 'Ka-Pow' sweater during New York Fashion Week, I've been sold and so how everyone by the sounds of it. Both that style and his 'Break-Up' sweater have been seen on just about everyone and have been selling like hot cakes since hitting stores.
You can tackle the style in one of two ways. If, like me, you're still new to the whole statement prints and motifs game, make the sweater the statement and keep everything else muted. Alternatively you can go full-hog and team it with a statement block coloured skirt or pair of the printed trousers that we all can't get enough of this season.
At Berlin Fashion Week there was a particular collection that stood out amongst the rest and that was Markus Lupfer's Viva Baroque resort collection. A Native Designer but based in London, Lupfer brought a dose of fashion magic to the shows with his spectacular set. Collaborating with set designer Vincent Olivieri the designer explained:
"We have created three rooms within one room with fringes hanging from the ceiling to divide them. Each has a different theme - one has foil on the floor, another grass with mushrooms - so it's a bit fairytale - and the third is like a mirror cube."
The collection has brought praise from many key figures within the industry including star of 'The City' and Vogue.com presenter Olivia Palermo, who flew in especially for the presentation. She said: "I love the golden shirt dress. For me, his clothes are very wearable, great for every day,"
Forget about the doom and gloom of the recession with the style that takes you back to your childhood. From pencilled graphics on t-shirts to bold prints on coats, it is all about having some fun. Innocent bows and cute hearts will add some youth to any tired outfit. Clashing prints and images are what makes this trend so wearable. Just mix it up and have a play; after all everybody's young at heart.
