Marques Almeida Dresses
Marques Almeida cited Malick Sidibé as inspiration for AW17. His portraits of local people in Bamako, Mali were pinned firmly to the label’s mood board. The sense of donning your Sunday best his subjects showed is reinterpreted in styles such as this shirt dress. Strictly speaking, it’s a formal piece. Off the record, it’s totally unhinged, with a magnified pointed collar, overlay at the front, raw hems and a giant safety pin holding everything together.Marques Almeida cotton twill shirt dressExposed button fastenings at front Pointed collar, dropped shoulders, long sleeves, double cuff with clip fastening, overlay at front with button loops, oversized safety pin with branding, silver toned hardware, oversized, curved back yoke, box pleat at back yoke, curved hem, raw hem100% cottonHand wash coldTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 35"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8

Marques' Almeida's maxi dress is knitted from ribbed merino wool in a bold cobalt-blue hue. The exaggerated sleeves and raw hem are characteristically cool, off-beat details. We like to cinch the straight cut with a leather waist belt.

A label that’s inclined towards overtly oversized silhouettes in its collections, Marques Almeida tempers that temptation with this dress that's cut slightly loose with a subtly flared finish. A pure merino wool profile renders it ultra soft and creates a fluid handle that’s made sleeker still by the finely ribbed knit. Aligned to AW17 trends, its shaped hem skims your calves – complete the look with a pair of retro inspired boots.Marques Almeida knitted wool dressSlips onRound neck, long sleeves, all over ribbed, flared hem100% merino woolHand washTrue to sizeSize small: Length 62"Model is 5ft 11", chest 26", waist 34", inside leg 36" and wears a size small
