Moda Lisboa – 9th October – Marques Almeida – LAB

Marques Almeida – LAB
The Marques Almeida collection was all acid wash, bleached denim except for a few pieces. The collection began with oversized sleeveless dresses, short at the front revealing denim shorts, all frayed and fluffy at the edges with cuffed half leg trousers beneath that seemed to hold themselves up with rouching on the leg.  The collection continued with the loose fitting, sleeveless tops and t-shirt dresses as well as skirts and crop tops – most toting the mixed length hems we have seen so much of this season. White long sleeves sheer tops began to appear with opaque bibs and soft distressed fabrics, still frayed at the edges. For variation we started to see flashes of darker blue denim before the collection returned to icy blue. With cut outs on the arms and shoulders this collection looked hip and fresh. Finally we saw knotted, chunky, white knitwear jumper dresses that were long and fitted slim to the body. The last outfit featured a gorgeous full length jacket – long at the front and cropped at the back.

The collection was interesting yet a little repetitive. At the end the designer’s family gave them a standing ovation and a granny on the front row began to cry uncontrollably with pride, so being a bitch is a little hard!
