Markus Lupfer – aka our favourite knitwear designer – has become a fashion household name due to his wildly popular slogan tees and knits. From ‘Ka-Paow’ to ‘Totes Amaze’, Markus’ tongue in cheek mottos are all the rage with the fash-pack – and were a serious hit with the FROW this season. So imagine out delight to hear that the knitwear maestro was set to collaborate with high street hero brand Whistles!
The collaboration offers several giftable (hint, hint) must-haves – all complete with Markus’ signature sense of humour. From a cashmere beanie emblazoned with the word ‘BRRRR’ to a scarf which reads ‘Wrap me Up’ the line is vintage Markus Lupfer. Also available are pretty PJs and heart printed cases and pouches – perfect stocking fillers for you eager beaver Christmas shoppers. To see more of the collection, pick up this week’s Grazia where you can get the exclusive down-low on the ins and outs of the tie in.
And in more exciting news, to support the fab new collaboration, Markus has also created a suitably Xmasssy film complete with an all-star cast filmed in a super cosy room in the Renaissance Hotel St Pancras. Reading the classic ‘It was the night before Christmas’ from a Chesterfield armchair, Markus is joined by a gang of mischievous British celebrities including Zoe Ball, Lauren Laverne, Janet Street-Porter, Kathy Lette, Olivia Lee and Suki Waterhouse as well as Stanley the dog.
