Carnaval! The Marques’Almeida team had won the LVMH prize weeks before the launch of Resort 16, and it seems they were in the party mood. This suede bag is a dance-floor hit, coated in ostrich feathers in a deep, tropical shade of red (not to mention, it’s handily sized, compartmentalised inside and has shoulder and wrist-strap options).

The collection is inspired by the designers’ childhood memories of Brazilian soap opera actresses, like Adriana Esteves and Carolina Dieckmann with their ruched cocktail dresses, sequins, scintillating slashes, and paper-thin slips. We love how M’A coordinate it with a red mini-dress and shoes, a striking look we’re excited to recreate to bring a tropical punch to our London wardrobe.
