As a self confessed Marques Almeida addict, getting my hands on a ticket to attend the showing of their SS/14 collection felt something along the lines of 'pretty damn good.' The Portuguese dream team (Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida) have that inexplicable talent to create clothes which ooze effortless cool, which is why I had no doubt that this show would be another total must-see. 

 Known for giving a nod towards the Nineties in previous collections, this season the duo took it back to the year 2000. As an eclectic remix of Basement Jaxx and The Chemical Brothers (party anyone?) ripped through the speakers, a variety of sheer spaghetti strap slips and obi detailed jackets fled down the runway. The Marques Almeida silhouette was still in tact but this time baring just that extra little flesh. Boob tubes were in tow and cowhide was made cool, heavily clad onto a denim dress and boots ending just below the knee. 'Garish' and 'J-Lo' might be words used to describe the millennia but not anymore, certainly not under Marques Almeida's watch.

 If you'd like to see images of the full collection accompanied with a dazzling review by Jessica Bumpus just click here. Alternatively, you can visit my Instagram to see images of the models actually facing the correct way. Personally, these images featured on The Pop.com are some of my favourite yet.
