Backstage Marques Almeida - AW/14
Right from the tips of the fur stoles to the ends of the pointed-toe pumps, for AW/14 this collection, again, yelled a very loud C O O L. What else can be expected of the design duo who base their aesthetic on the nineties and noughties? Drawing inspiration from the heyday of the Chelsea Hotel, this season it was all about colour colour colour, pairing denim with slabs of shaggy fur and low slung hipster jeans. The trouser suit was also introduced in either a choice of acid-washed looking velvet or silk. I headed down to the depths of the Turbine Hall at the crack of dawn (6am on the dot) Tuesday 18th Feb to take some very candid looking photos. Enjoy!
