Smorgasbord: Dsquared2 SS16 #MFW

23 Jun


For about three seasons now, though I’ve been drooling and gnawing over every smashing collection I’ve been asking DSquared2 creators/designers Dean & Dan Caten for a new direction. Not something complete different from what we have come to love of the Canadian duo but more than the usual of vibrant colors, baggy cropped denim, sex and mix of Canadian outdoors & American western culture. However, this time they gave me a smorgasbord.

This surf themed Spring/Summer 2016 collection had a plethora of layers, from Native American patterned ponchos, gigantic over-sized pants over running tights to layered mesh razor tanks and the most notable (kind of tired but I get it) layer: tattoo bodysuits. Denim being their staple and money maker there was plenty to choose from ranging from supersized and baggy to cowboy inspired. Their collection have a very grunge Malibu or Venice beach surfer’s vagabond ambiance to it. Sporty, utilitarian, edgy, messy but cool.

As I exclaim in every post I write about the twins, they know how to entertain. The flamboyant gimmicky show may have grown a little stale on some lovers of the brand nevertheless, nice to see. There is plenty of edgy, current mode and creativity here but these looks can be easy duplicated for much cheaper alternatives from Asos to Urban Outfitters. A Dsquared2 label or the dream to look as smoldering as the models can only go so far for so long.

But right now I’m in total love with the traveler theme of this collection. Everything I want in my summer active-wear, if you are looking for refinement and streamline tailoring veer Neil Berrett’s SS16 collection.

Summer is very much traveling, fun, skin, color, ventilation and style. A “free” collection.
