Have you discovered Topshop’s latest designer collaboration yet? Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida, the Portuguese design duo behind edgy brand Marques’Almeida, have teamed up with the high-street giant for its very first joint collaboration.
Lilac taffeta, white leather, neon green knit – any more questions? #MarquesAlmeidaxTopshop @Marques_Almeida #topshop #collaboration #taffeta #knitwear #bright #AW14
The collection definitely stays true to the line’s raw, young, effortless and lived-in signatures, and of course, there’s plenty of denim. When a brand’s trademark piece is an oversized, distressed denim T-shirt, then you have to expect to see a little denim thrown in here and there.

The pair graduated from Central Saint Martins and perhaps living in London has influenced their designs a lot more than their Portuguese heritage, as their previous Fall 2014 catwalk collection clearly sported a mix of crazy designs for which London Fashion Week is famed. We saw bold colours, fur-covered heels and even very retro-feeling double denim ensembles.
As for the brand’s first Topshop collaboration, you can feel a 90s revival bubbling up since it covers a range of denim separates, some of which feature that era-evocative ripped effect, as well as a ribbed vest and a faux fur wallet bag that scream 90s pop star.
We’re having a pink fur meets neon nails moment at #TopshopHQ #MarquesAlmeidaxTopshop Bag 25M40GPNK, Nails: 20N01FLGN, Rings: 61R88GGLD, 61R56EGLD #topshop #jewellery #ring #freedom #freedomjewellery #neon #nails #nailpolish #bag #MarquesAlmeida
So, if you fancy channeling your inner 90s style icon this fall, in a distressed denim kind of way, then the Marques’Almeida x Topshop collaboration is the one for you. Prices range from around £65 upward and you can view the collection over at Topshop.
