London Fashion Week... Marques'Almeida AW17
Start as you mean to go on… the opening look for the Marques'Almeida AW17 show had strong Beetle Juice vibes—even the model resembled a young Winona Ryder! The whole collection had a base of monochrome geometric lines in a variety of size. Silhouettes were strong with oversized blazers and giant sleeves offset with bare shoulders.
The show took place in the rustic warehouse settings of the Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane where the models stomped the path of bricks in statement platforms which brought an injection of colour. The Portuguese design duo also brought a welcome splash of sixties optimism with oversized polka-dot silk dresses—an incredibly significant time to reference given the shit storm the world is currently going through.
