Marques'Almeida's bold new range hits LFW

Marques'Almeida staged a cute and colourful Autumn/Winter 16 show during London Fashion Week on Tuesday (23Feb16).

The label, helmed by Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida, added a pop of fun into the last day of the bi-annual event with shades such as fuchsia, yellow and baby blue taking to the runway.

With over-exaggerated designs it certainly isn't a range for the faint-hearted, with one bright pink bubble jacket featuring an oversized collar worn over a black dress making for a dramatic outfit.

The general vibe was mismatch, as one girl wore a red and white chequered shirt under a purple dip-dye spaghetti strap dress with yellow pointed heels under black netting. Another off-beat look consisted of shiny orange calf-high boots worn with a blue, long-sleeved mini dress, complete with a netted layer over the top.

Attention to detail was evident though, as a pair of shoes featured heels in the shape of an 'M' and 'A' for a personal touch.

Also showing on Tuesday (23Feb16) was Christopher Raebern, whose cubic-style set made the perfect background for his geometric-patterned pieces. Rather than sending models down a runway, the British designer set up square scaffolding and had his girls stand either on the floor amidst the metal or on platforms. They swapped positions regularly so the crowds could get a good look at all the clothing on offer.

Christopher fully embraced the colder seasons with his warm, cosy Autumn/Winter 16 line, featuring plenty of cover ups and accessories. One particularly snug number was a wool jumper with brown, white, navy and red panels, which also appeared to have a built in scarf. It was worn with a thick black midi skirt, and also came in grey, red and navy.

A less heavy ensemble consisted of a black zip-up sweater with yellow lines, paired with matching trousers. The model's bag even matched the edgy print of the clothing.
