New Design Talent: Marques Almeida

We blogged about new design duo, Marques Almeida back when they showed at London Fashion Week’s  St. Martins graduate show in September, and we were again drawn to the brand after seeing these beautiful photos on their site.

Marta and Paulo met six years ago in their native country of Portugal and have studied and lived together ever since. Their collection of deconstructed denim turned heads last september and I-D Magazine recently featured the pair in an interview, where the team talks about their inspiration for the collection.

They were drawn to a quote by Helmut Lang: “Fashion is about attitude, not hemlines.” the collection featured oversized silhouettes, layer upon layer of denim upon denim, ripped hemlines and attitude aplenty. The images on their website, shot by the design duo, show off the garments to full effect and highlight the theatrical silhouettes and destroyed, threadbare look. Enjoy!
