Denim Design Talent: Marta Marques & Paulo Almeida


We love to check out the graduate shows for new design talent emerging and we noticed this show by design duo Marta Marques & Paulo Almeida from the Central Saint Martins graduate collections on Saturday. Clean, rinsed denim pieces in oversized proportions are given a twist with raw and frayed edges, false hemlines and ombre dyes in black. Garments were classic and simple: basic shift dresses, tunics and an oversized mackintosh were key, with a similar attitude to Stella McCartney’s S/S 11 show, but the clean lines were updated to great effect by the deconstructed seams. Great work!
