Dsquared2's creators, Dan and Dean Caten took a totally new approach to fashion with their pre-fall 2013. Have a look at the vintage inspired collection as its definitely worth checking out!
The pre-fall 2013 fashion season was packed with surprises as
fashion designers chose to venture off into new terrain with their
fashion collections and on of the brands that surprised us the most
is Dsquared2. The new path to style according to Dean and Dan
Caten's Dsquared2 pre-fall 2013
collection: squeaky clean vintage chicness. The pre-fall season
seems to determine the two reputable fashion designers to switch
from their usual playful, sexy and bold signature designs and play
with vintage elements featuring classic lines and the brand's last
pre-fall collection is proof of this as it took a bit of a sixties
approach to style. This year, the designers chose to dive even
deeper into the vintage fashion scene and stopped at the forties
for inspiration which we absolutely love as this was a period in
which style reached a whole new level without the use of skin
A glimpse at Dsquared2's pre-fall 2013 collection will be sufficient to sweep you off your feet especially if you have a penchant for vintage inspired fashion designs. All the elements maintain that classic chicness the 40s were all about, however the fabrics, the color combos and the display of the designs gave the collection a slightly modern allure that fits the contemporary style divas perfectly.
This is definitely a collection that is not intended for the honeys that love to show off plenty of skin as it is packed with midi and maxi dresses, curve-hugging pencil skirts, baggy trousers, comfy knits and classic and elegant looking coats. The fact that this is not your average fashion collection is also underlined by the designer's choice to focus more on deux pieces, coats and pencil skirts, unlike other labels that opted to pay a tribute to the dress with their collections, by making this particular fashion item the 'queen of the show'. However, this is an element that is necessary when it comes to 2013 fashion, so the dresses included in this collection were kept either below the knees or down to the floor, featuring a body hugging structure or an old Hollywood glamor appeal.
This is the season to start mixing up and layering elements as the designers prove by mixing pencil skirts with tucked in blouses, stylish fitted cardigans, chambray blazers, straight line coats, stylish classic trousers with shirts, basically any mix that will give you a totally unique vibe. The detail that tops the collection and amps-up the sex appeal: the chunky platforms paired with ankle length socks! Although not a new a mix as this is a comeback trend that delivers a high visual impact, the fact that this trend was paired with the fabulous achromatic and vivaciously pigmented designs signed Dsquared2 pre-fall 2013, gave the collection an even hotter allure and turned it into a definite DO for style inspiration!
