OOOh I’m so excited, I’m waiting on the arrival of my Markus Lupfer Lara lips tee, it’s due today…eeek! I know it’s not anything particularly new, but I’ve been trying to track down this orange sequin version for some time, and I finally found it on Vestiaire Collective. Also finding it here gave me the chance to purchase at less that half the original retail price. To me it was a bargain, but my husband still almost had a heart attack at the fact I would spend so much on a t-shirt…men!
Markus Lupfer tees and jumpers are often seen gracing the chests of some very high profile celebs. His sequin embellished designs are iconic and instantly recognisable, offering a glam yet still understand look. Of course ML isn’t the only design to use a smattering of sequins to adorn their tees and tops, Tom Ford, Kenzo, Givenchy are of course, all good company but the prices here quickly sky rocket.
I’m surprised it’s taken the High Street so long to cotton on. Quite often at Christmas you’ll find the fun novelty sequin jumpers, but if you want to steal this sequin style for summer there are currently lots of options out there, and all at less than half the cost of the designer originals. H&M and River Island are doing a particularly good job, so go check them out, and if my Markus Lupfer tee makes it’s arrival I’ll be posting later on Instagram so you can see it in gorgeous gloriousness!
