Marques ‘ Almeida Fall 2015 RTW
February 24, 2015 - fall Denim
It’s removing to a indicate where we can mark pieces from Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida all over a place. Cool women of many generations are co-opting a label’s choppy, frayed-edged denim jackets, kick-flare jeans, and boxy T-shirts as daily fare—occasionally trailing an greatly colored Marques ‘ Almeida shearling stole in their wake. “She’s a sensitively daring girl—always!” pronounced Marques when asked backstage to report who she and her partner consider about when they’re designing.
Their code of brusque travel sophistication took another assured travel brazen for tumble today, producing piece and variety, and an inspirational strain of glam and shine in a form of lead leather, over-the knee boots, corseted bustiers, a peep of immature sequence mail, scrunched-up foiled bags, wonky oversize bows, and super-desirable fluffy sheepskin jackets and coats in red or mauve. How come? “We only non-stop a studio doorway to all kinds of ideas, and let them come in,” Marques shrugged. “Paulo would travel in one day with a nineties Corinne Day pattern of Rosemary Ferguson wearing china pants; we was looking during Frida Kahlo; afterwards we found some brocade fifties dresses. So it became a mash-up of all that.”
It didn’t come opposite as pointless during all. The denim ran by red, pink, and shades of blue: a templates of jeans jackets asymmetrically recut to hang and tie, pants cropped to flip out during a hems, legs assembled with spiraling slashes. Almeida is a one with a resourceful draping skills, which, by a way, don’t stop during utilizing denim. This deteriorate he figured out what to do with knitwear, too, entrance adult with a purchase of head-turning ribbed merino silhouettes—part toga, partial messy joe—each one painted magenta, lifeless green, or orange-yellow.
There’s no clarity that Marques and Almeida are wasting any of their time with involved egghead pattern cogitations, or holding deep-thinking séances about lifting a suggestion of a nineties. This is a kind of conform that comes from someplace else—what they’re doing is spontaneous, instinctual, and issuing in a instruction that sweeps adult some-more supporters with any season. They do, however, have a tip weapon: Marta Marques’s sister Sofia, twenty-one years old, who says accurately what she thinks. “When we asked her to try on a fifties dresses we found, she wriggled around and pronounced she’d never wear them like that,” laughed Marta. Result: a chopped-up, raw-edged collage-y brocades and damasks in a finale.
