Marques’ Almeida Resort 2016

Marta Marques and her design partner Paulo Almeida infused their laid-back silhouettes with an "aggressively womanly" edge.

Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida of Marques’ Almeida — the newly minted winners of this year’s LVMH prize — turned to Brazil for the inspiration for their first resort collection. The Portuguese-born, London-based designers took Sofia Marques, Marta’s sister who is based in Brazil, as their muse, with Marques calling her “the ultimate Marques’ Almeida girl.” They shot Sofia in designs that fused the duo’s laid-back, undone silhouettes with what Marques called an “aggressively womanly” edge, inspired by characters in the Brazilian soap operas the sisters grew up watching.

 

There were looks such as a red silk slipdress stitched with frayed strips of striped organza that wound around the body, and a voluminous, off-the-shoulder peasant dress in white cotton. Marques and Almeida also worked their signature denim with a similar technique, doing a denim camisole top and skirt in tiers of frayed frills. Among the standouts were a series of looks that the designers did in a micro floral pattern printed onto sequins and used for an ankle-length slipdress, a ruffled camisole and skirt, and a languid long-sleeve top and pants.
