We’ve declared ourselves addicted to Dsquared² ever since we’ve witnessed the first collection signed by the label, so no wonder that we’ve been super excited about the brand’s spring 2013 fashion presentation. As expected, designer duo Dean and Dan Caten, didn’t disappoint as it seems that it turned towards the era of the supermodels for inspiration.
The 90s were packed with uber-stylish elements packing a bit of an edge and plenty of skin revealing details and it seems that these retro elements made their way back to the podiums in style, however with a little bot of a twist, Dean and Dan Caten-style! The designers chose opulent details that added a barely there dominatrix allure to the designs as the 90s were known for the distinct fashion style that caused a stir among young fashionistas, so no wonder the voguish designs screamed attention from start to finish, as there’s no way stylish form fitting maxi dresses, tight mini skirts, cut-out one-piece swimwear, stylish hotpants and chain accessories can be overlooked.
Making sure that the Dsquared2 name is on everyone’s lips, the designers chose to imprint their name and the name of the brand on plain white T-shirts, taking a hint to the oh-so-popular retro Chanel T-shirts. This gave the collection a touch of casualness as the sexy leg emphasizing silhouettes needed a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to balance the look and give it a sexy-casual allure, perfect for the modern-day diva. All the designs had a high wearability level, although some of the maxi dresses did look like they were clinging a bit hard on the model’s perfect forms.
Among the stylish 90s inspired mini skirts and dresses displayed in either a monochrome or duo chromatic pattern, the collection also features some chic capris, stylish denims and some quilted leather dresses that looked fierce and packing loads of attitude. The collection was given the finishing touches that also underline the muse of the designers, through the use of retro caps and opulent chain accessories that made every ensemble stand out and claim the spotlight. Although the color palette chosen by the designers for the Dsquared2 spring 2013 collection was more toned down, basing itself of mostly achromatic colors, vivacious, springy tones such as bright pink, soft pink and fierce red gave that dose of playfulness that was needed to take the seriousness out of the designs. Chic, stylish yet meant to the divas that love to stand out, the collection is definitely worth checking out, so take a peek at the lovely shapes and patterns and pick your style influences for the new season.
