The intelligent mix of irreverent Canadian wit and refined Italian tailoring, together with attention to detail are the foundation of today’s Dsquared2 philosophy, which has given life to a unique concept of alternative luxury. Founded by Dean and Dan Caten, who are also the brand’s designers, the Canadian twin brothers from Willowdale Ontario have operated in the international fashion business since 1984. Dsquared2 has since seen wider audiences as the collections have become more chic and sophisticated while maintaining the sexy and provocative traits embedded in their creative roots. This evolution is also due to the continuous international inspiration received by Dean and Dan, who, while dividing their life and work between Milan and London, create their collections in Italy: “Born in Canada, living in London, made in Italy”.

#D2gether Dsquared2 Fall Winter 2018
Rhinestone Rebel

Dazzling in over-embellished signature Dsquared2 cuts, the Fall Winter 2018 collection adds another chapter to the nomad design story conceived by designers, Dean and Dan Caten.

That narrative is laced with brand heritage: red-and-black check, tricked out denim and swathes of prints that cascade down dramatic silhouettes.

Shirts in checks, silk, denim and stretch gabardine give a more structured feel, with elaborate yokes covered in a wash of sequins, appliqued with lace or leather flowers, or dotted with jeweled cachon studs. A soft cotton design in a seamless patchwork of stripes, checks and florals is emblematic of Dsquared2 style infused throughout the season’s theme. 

These glam guys and gals have an elegant side too, tempering the sparkle with tailored jackets and pants featuring leather smile piping, and a dramatic Mongolian long haired brown and white coat.

Denim, tailored and leather pants have a new silhouette; a high waist, cropped with a flare that’s subtly revealed from behind the ankle, to show the embroidered cowboy boots.

Diaphonous voile cotton and lace dresses are layered over full sequin bodysuits. The prairie nightgown style dresses are reworked for the guys, as an asymmetric long tunic shirt, its transparent romance contrasting against masculine tailoring.

Other long dresses are a constructed from a series of silk scarves printed with flowers, inspired by vintage finds and embroidered with glimmering beads. Their bohemian flow is given dimension with swinging suede fringe bags and sandals, crafted with plush fur and crystals.

 Formal golden livery transpires as ornate bohemian decoration, appliqued onto parkas and peacoats. Shearlings come in traditional black and cream rugged styles. Oversized knits feature Westin motif jacquards. They wear sequin neck ties and socks in shades of mint and antique rose, black heavy shoes with engraved medallions on the top.

 

This season Dsquared2’s guys and gals are leaving the rodeo to light up the city.
