Marques'Almeida's signature take on denim has won them a following, and for fall they are working their magic on new fabrics. Inspired by 90s icon Winona Ryder, the standard slash and fray approach is also used on silk and wool, for a tailored, eveningwear look that stays true to their grunge aesthetic.

Bored English schoolgirls, Nirvana fans, and 90s editorials all contribute to Marques'Almeida's angsty cool. The two Central Saint Martins graduates mine their shared nostalgia for tween years spent in Portugal and their training at Vivienne Westwood (Marta) and Preen (Paulo) to forge an aesthetic all their own. Determined by an attititude above all, their clothes are one part DIY and nine parts research—carried out by wandering East London streets for inspiration.
