Whatever the message at DSquared2, from the set with an iconic curved Sixties lamp through the colourful oversize clothes to the soundtrack of Disclosure’s “When a Fire Starts to Burn”, designer twins Dean and Dan Caten were thinking big.
The show had bright patches of leather to create graphic pattern, blocks of colour, and a general feeling of bold statements.
The design duo seemed wedded to evening clothes — or maybe the big fancy skirt worn with a T-shirt was just for partying. And this savvy brand interspersed the follies, such as crumpled patterned trousers under a floppy skirt, with smart trouser suits as a reality check.
Although perfectly fine as a sport-meets-art-meets-party collection, there was nothing but the music to set fashion on fire.
