Portuguese designers and Central Saint Martin alums Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida, have debuted their second collaboration with the American denim brand, 7 For All Mankind, called Marques' Almeida. The collection, named ReM'Ade, is produced entirely of deadstock and excess fabrics.
Marques said that the whole intent and purpose of ReM'Ade was to combine their creative powers together in the quest for a greater good, which is the struggle for a more sustainable fashion industry. It may be difficult to figure out what a fashion firm can do to be more sustainable, and adopting deadstock textiles was a great way to start.
The designers lean further on denim this time, with a specific focus on patchwork, than they did in their first collaboration in 2018, which included pieces like a deconstructed shirtdress and knit sweater.
The collection includes flare jeans inspired by the 1970s, an oversized trucker jacket, and an asymmetric denim dress, all of which are available now at 7forallmankind.com. The denim ranges in price from $189 to $300, with a $98 T-shirt and a $168 hoodie also available.
Marques, who is recognised for reimagining denim with Almeida, said collaborating with 7 For All Mankind provided them with opportunities they wouldn't have had otherwise. When contrasted to the American denim firm, a branch of Delta Galil Industries, the duo, winners of the 2015 LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers, work with more limited resources.
Marques added that 7 For All Mankind has access to wonderful materials, and the idea behind the patchwork designs was created to highlight the diversity of a brand like 7 For All Mankind's legacy and how it can be celebrated.
7 For All Mankind, which was founded in Vernon, California, in the suburbs of Los Angeles in 2000, has focused on sustainability in recent years. Last year, the company declared its goal to ensure that more than 80% of its products have sustainable features by 2023, as part of its "Sustainable For All Mankind" agenda.
