S/S 17 Influencer Show: Marques'Almeida

They say save the best for last, and that proved true on the closing day of an underwhelming London Fashion Week with Marques’Almeida’s S/S 17 showing, where 43 exits succinctly nailed the trends for the season.

The much under-hyped design duo tapped into the historical reference points which have been the driver this week in London, and – in their signature way – gave them the sort of relevance that will appeal to today’s savvy consumer.

Complex brocades were melded into jeanswear styling layered over sportswear tees; the utility boiler suit got a makeover with exaggerated leg-of-mutton Edwardiana sleeves; and they worked silvered Baroque jacquards into ruffled baby-doll shifts, teamed with over-the-knee boots.

All of the season’s trend boxes were ticked – albeit in an iconic Marques’Almeida Club Kid way. Frayed bleached-out denim, metallics and shimmering satin, ruching and ruffles, boudoir satin slip dresses and camisoles, soft PJ dressing, asymmetric ruffled hem skirts and leg-of-mutton-sleeved shirts all made an appearance. 

A palette of pretty pastel pink, lilac and lemon was complemented with the graphic twist of black and white awning stripes, ponyskin prints and club-ready silver PU, all adding just the right up-to-the-minute streetwise touches. Hardware trims also gave those historical reference points a modern-day relevance with silver ring-pull zips, grommet-trimmed belts and dome-headed studs.

And accessories to complete the look? Think giant hoop earrings, over-the-knee boots, ghillie-laced sandals, pointed ruched front flats and mid-calf-length metallic boots.
