Everlane, known for its elevated basics, is teaming up with Marques’ Almeida for its very first limited-edition collaboration. If you are not as familiar with Marques’ Almeida, the brand was created by a Portuguese design duo — Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida — and founded in London. The brand is known for its patchwork denim and playful asymmetrical styles, and recently showed a collection at London Fashion Week after a pandemic-long hiatus.

The partnership revisits some of Everlane’s cult-favorite closet mainstays and Marques’ Almeida’s of-the-now silhouettes, like denim patchwork jackets and brightly colored knitwear, derived from surplus materials.

Do I Need This?

Yes. I’ve been contemplating the printed satin $300 Marques’ Almeida slip dress for a few months, and the collab features a similar style for $198 in pink and seafoam tie-dye colors. They’re coining it, “High end. Low environmental impact.” Sizes range from XS to XL. Let’s go through a couple of key pieces.

With a clean-up-the-industry mindset, the Marques’ Almeida team respun best sellers, and you can see the vision easily. The knitwear are some of the more coveted options from this collaboration; like this alpaca mesh cardigan in powder blue, slouchy mint turtlenecks, and oversized cashmere crewnecks. This style features a relaxed silhouette and mesh stitch in alpaca, GRS-certified recycled nylon, nylon, and RWS-certified merino wool, which are sustainable qualities that are hard to come by at an affordable price. We love.

In 2014, the brand had a buzzy collaboration with Topshop. In that collection, and this one, you’d discover their signature patchworking — marking an “IYKYK” piece for fashion fans. Rounding out this collection are pared-back versions of patchwork dresses, and this one could easily be dressed up or down.

The designers helped to redefine the denim aesthetic of the mid-2000s with asymmetrically sliced tops and dresses with exaggerated fraying and rich hues. Within Everlane’s collaboration, these notes are still abundant — just take a look at the patch pockets, point collar, and roomy fit of this jacket. It’s hard to find a denim jacket that truly works for early spring and late summer nights, and this one definitely hits both marks.

Where Can I Get It?

It’s live now on! However, you may want to finalize your carts because many pieces are already sold out.

What Are People Saying?

If the comment section is any indication of excitement levels, everyone is already asking when the next drop goes live. We’ve also spotted a few heart-eye emojis, “You’re going to make me go broke,” and “N-E-E-D” comments underneath each Everlane post.
