Dsquared2 celebrate 20 years in the business and deliver more fun, fur and denim
We take a look at Dsquared2’s autumn/winter 2015 Milan Men’s Fashion Week collection which was also the brand’s 20th anniversary as well as another form of celebration due to the twin designers celebrating their 50th birthday at the end of last year.
The collection referenced many of their previous works and features their well known use of leather, fur, plaid shirts and denim as the duo continued to strive to perfect the ultimate pair of jeans and push embellishment to new limits. We saw huge oversized fur trapper hats, fringed and frayed leather and lumberjack shirts worn loose or knotted round the waist, all of which celebrated the designer’s Canadian patriotism and simultaneously asserted and eroticized the masculinity of the models.
The sleek tuxedos and decorated dinner jackets were a glittering end to the fun and energetic show which was brought to a close with R&B diva Mary J Blige performing as she escorted the Caten brothers down the runway.
Renzo Rosso the president of the OTB Group tells Fashion One what he thinks of the show and how happy he is to work with the designers who he considers his friends. He encourages them to continue and sees great potential for the already successful label to further conquer the market and establish itself as not only an important brand but a brand that stays “cool”.
