Nights out in the early noughties were about dancing to summer anthems in halter tops and chunky shoes. Marques'Almeida's Spring/Summer 2013 collection breathes this nostalgic spirit. Adding a little girliness to their neo-grunge aesthetic, Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida mix their signature denims with frayed chiffon, soft knits, and hits of lavender.
Chunky heeled sandals with adjustable velcro straps | Padded ankle strap | Notched tread | Cushioned insole | Genuine leather | Rubber sole | 1.5"platform | 3.75" heel | Made in Portugal.

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.
