DSQUARED – MILAN F/W 2012 FASHION SHOW
Dsquared’s Fall 2012 collection was designers Dan and Dean Caten’s homage to senior year of high school, complete with disco ball and an impromptu prom. Although a sign proclaimed this to be the “Class of 2013,” the aesthetic of the collection proved to be more sixties. Models in big bouffants wearing lady-like leather gloves walked out of the classroom and down the runway in leopard print and diamante pumps, which were a surprisingly reasonable height considering Dsquared’s previous collections of ankle-snapping footwear. The silhouettes were equally vintage, with tight, mohair sweaters over button downs, slim, ankle length pants, and collars trimmed in mink. These sweet, innocent designs (a rare offering from Dsquared) were given modern impact with luxurious fabrics, like crocodile and patent leather, done in vibrant tones.
