For the Marques’ Almeida fall 2022 collection, Marta Marques and Paolo Almeida chose to photograph their show in Portugal because it’s where they live.
Marques explained how much time and how many people were involved with pulling off this sea-show scenario in the town of Viana do Castelo on the north Atlantic coast—not a one-off event, but a tussle with the tides filmed at the exact point when their models appear to be walking on water, using a sea wall as a runway. “We spent weekends there, studying the tides, asking local people’s advice, and practicing, which meant twice a day for 20 minutes when the sea’s at the right level,” she laughed.
