The Great Designers: Dsquared²

Yesterday Fall made its first rainy appearance and got this morning was quite called. This got me thinking about warm cozy fabrics, knits, furs and leather, luxurious wool coats and floppy hats, about the mixture of all these and the art of layering. Guess what almost immediately came to my mind. Dsquared². Their fall 2011 RTW collection is a representation of everything I described. The theme is Wild West, it's a little eclectic and may be some pieces won't work off the runways but the dolled up glitter models made it work perfectly! See for your self!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Dean and Dan Caten most definitely know a thing or two about mixing and matching. In 1991 they left their native Canada for Italy and managed to turn the fashion world on its head by blending the American pop culture and the superior Italian tailoring. The Milan debut of their men's line in 1994 gathered fans like Lenny Kravitz and Justin Timberlake . Later, in 2002, the identical twins created the costumes for Madonna's "Don't tell me" video. In 2003 the womenswear line was launched and supermodels such as Naomi Campbell , Eva Herzigova, and Karolina Kurkova sauntered out of a pink private jet in unapologetically sex-charged regalia. The designers' work is honest and real and that's what they want to contribute fashion industry with and be respected for.
