Welcome to the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts! Summer festival styling has never looked so good. For spring 2012, Dsquared2 sent rock chicks and boho-hippies on a muddy runway for a shabby chic fashion inspiration. Feast your eyes upon the latest Dsquared2 collection presented at Milan Fashion Week.
Dan and Dean Caten invited us into the fun world of music
festivals. Models walked down on a muddy runway wearing utility
jackets, men’s shirts, tribal chic long dresses with raffia
embroidery, denim pants, hot bikinis, asymmetric tops, t-shirts,
mini skirts, waterproof parkas and the already famous wellies. The
show used songs by Coldplay and U2 that perfectly suited the
atmosphere. Beautiful, fanciful, wearable and epical are the best
words that describe the Dsquared2 Spring 2012 collection
seen at Milan Fashion Week.
There were tons of hot, comfy and uber-stylish looks and indie-inspired pieces mixed with grunge elements resulting into a unique "very Glasto-style". Despite rain and mud, nothing could stop people from keep the party going. The color palette was vivid and crazy. It was a playful ode to the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts with a parade of cheerful shades such as yellow, orange, turquoise, purple, magenta and green, while sparkly animal prints and the American flag added a special, happy touch.
Accessories were equally convincing with festival wrist bands, colourful cotton foulards, "flappies" hats or masculine-inspired ones, mirrored shades in flashy colors, lots of fringes on gilets, jackets and on The Manitoba, Dsquared2’s new it bag. As for the shoes, there were versatile heel rainboots for both daytime and nighttime wear, all made of rubber and with a particular mud-like effect. All the outfits hang flawlessly, loosely, but super-stylishly and chic.
