London Fashion Week: Marques’ Almeida SS13
Young design duo Marques’ Almeida impressed this S/S 13 season by completely remaining denim and streetcar. They managed to find new and unique way of distressing denim to make the material appear a lot lighter than it actually is. Appliqué flowers on shorts and tunics were some of the standout pieces together with the very 90’s inspired wedge sandals and wedge cut out boots. There was hints of teenage angst reminiscent old issues of I-D or The Face. However big the 90’s comeback trend seems to be, it has not been as genuine and refreshing as what Marques’ Almeida exhibited at LFW.
