Marques Almeida

Inside the studio of the London-based design duo

When Marta Marques' and Paulo Almeida came to design their joint graduate collection at Central Saint Martins College in 2011, they found the theme staring them right in the face. "When researching the teen dress code, it was always a white T-shirt, denim and a leather jacket," said Almeida. Hey presto, they sent a denim collection down the runway. Shredded, ripped and oversized, it made the front-row style set fall in love with the humble workwear fabric all over again.

Fast-forward two years and the formula is working better than ever. Fans can look forward to a new take on their trademark aesthetic in the duo's SS14 collection which judging by the moodboard in their studio - a collage of images including Kate Moss and Devon Aoki - is all about the '00s. "It's our latest obsession," confirms Almeida. We can't wait!

Their small studio is packed with promise, not to mention fun - a copy of The Face is propped up on a shelf.

The brand introduced a luxurious edge last season in the form of pony
skin jackets

If there was one thing we wanted from the studio it was this clutch!
