Distorted Grunge. Marques Almeida SS17


There’s plenty of street-wise collections this season, but Pablo and Marta of Marques Almeida own this attitude since the beginnings of their London-based label. It’s real, and not just influenced by the current obsession with youth. The new collection was modelled by their friends / muses, and that might be the reason why these clothes seemed to be so relevant and natural. Leg-of-mutton sleeves were styled with brocade mini-dresses and sporty t-shirts, giving the impression of a thrift-shop-made look. The combination of denim high thigh boots, and a dress with ridiculously big collar distorted any proportions left, and the whole outfit was pretty peculiar – but that’s what Marques Almeida’s codes are all about. Pink hair, lace-trimmed tank-tops and striped panties instead of a skirt: is it the 2016 version of grunge?
