Injecting their signature Dsquared2 edge into their Fall 12 collection, Dan and Dean Caten’s heritage-inspired separates articulate a new approach to a familiar angle. Classic buttondowns are interpreted in line with this season’s heritage trend, offered in relaxed oxford checks and autumnal tartans and plaids, alongside intarsia knitwear woven with winter stripes, maple leafs or argyle. Toggle buttons add a functional, military aesthetic across soft knits and a cropped navy duffle coat updated with contrasting denim sleeves – a fusion of rugged functionality with high-fashion styling. Signature Dsquared2 distressed denim completes the worn spirit of the collection.
Accessories are also decisively heritage-focused, with leather bracelets, belts and badge necklaces offered with maximal distressing and signs of wear; offered alongside classic duffle bags and backpacks in canvas, tumbled suede or patchworked plaid, trimmed in leather for a traditional look. Timeless brogues and rugged workboots are also given a Dsquared2-style update with neon colorways, star-shaped studs or patent finishes.
