Marques Almedia is the Portuguese brand founded by designers Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida. Having met at fashion school, the design duo behind the label reunited after starting their separate careers in fashion. In 2009 they came together to create their own progressive label of streetwear for women that experiments with shape for a deconstructed look that is bold and feminine in its composition. Signature details include draping for a romantic feel. This is echoed in the label's basics portfolio, offering up draped cotton-blend sweatshirts.
