Markus Lupfer Opens a Namesake Cafe for Fall 2014 (Runway Review)

The Scene: Set in “Markus’ Cafe,” there were signs for coffee along with tea, posters (think "Jump for glee – cup cakes for tea”), menus and tables with models standing as well as sitting around the quirky setting.

The Inspiration: “I wanted something quintessentially British,” the designer told the Telegraph.

The Look: Fittingly, given the cafe setting, there were pinafore mini dresses with apron-like pockets in the front, while tartans tied into the designer’s British inspiration. Floral prints fashioned into a variety of separates (cropped top, high-waisted skirt, pencil skirt, long jacket, fitted trousers, zipped jacket) and dresses, colorblocked textured knits, patterned jackets and matching mini skirts, statement sweaters with cartoon ketchup and mustard along with others featuring bedazzled birds rounded out the collection, which also included closet-staple monochrome separates.

The Accessories: Low-heeled pointed black flats.

The Beauty: Strong black eyes and center-parted straight hair.

The Takeaway: Not as quirky as what we might expect from the designer, since there were plenty of wearable everyday contemporary designs.
