Portuguese-born duo Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida met back in 2007 while enrolling for fashion school at the prestigious Central Saint Martins. In 2011, the two launched Marques’ Almeida, a concept collection of denim-on-denim ensembles. Since then, the brand has bolstered an avant-garde, youthful, unfinished and effortless aesthetic. Today, the Marques’ Almeida’s collection include ready-to-wear apparel, handbags, silk-satin pajamas, spaghetti-strap tops, platform sandals and shoes, all with a dose of early ’00s nostalgia with a contemporary rendition. Each collection has an inviting, nostalgic charm spiked with contemporary attitude.
