SPRING SUMMER 17
Sara Marques is the face and genious behind Olimpia Davide’s brand. Based in Porto (Portugal), she is a portuguese young designer born in 1994 to whom fashion became a true passion soon in her childhood. After a successful academic career in Fashion Design, she managed to accomplish several prizes and participated in Portuguese Fashion Weeks. After these successful events, Sara Marques started to frame her brand. Olimpia Davide not only mirrors a lot of memories, but also keeps a great meaning. Her brand commits to a relaxed and casual style, ruled by the elegance and irreverence of the present day woman. Her creations are inspired by the memories she conjures of her travelling, as well as appealing to our five senses, recalling the smell and touch of passers-by. Sara Marques draws feminine apparel, where she outlines the ultimate woman: a mix of confidence, attitude and will to wander the world.
For Spring/Summer 2017, she presents a relaxed and sporty vibe, highly inspired by a trip to Turkey and all of its memories, as well as a series of photos taken by different photographers. Throughout their lenses they embody Turkey in distinct ways, where vibrant colours, modern, but minimalist buildings with a new look, side by side with the black and white reality of the Turkish people. These are the first references for this collection - the creased shorts, the vests with men’s blazer lapels, the long dresses below the knee remembering the Turkish women and which will become an asymmetrical silhouette, the loose and wrinkly sleeves, without forgetting the light fabric in godé . A relaxed collection where garments feature ribbed trims, polo plackets, jacquard, metallic and waterproof fabrics, as well as the elastics that were turned into bra straps as a way of adjusting these clothing items.
