DSQUARED2 DEANDANSBURY ROCK SUMMER FESTIVAL 2012
From London to Glastonbury, Dsquared²’s American boy decides to follow his English lover to the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts before going back home to the United States.
Rock chicks and boho-hippies, muses of a new shabby chic couture, move to the beat of music on a runway covered with mud, strongly evocative of this epic music festival.
Utility jackets, men’s shirts, tribal chic long dresses with raffia embroidery, denim hot pants, waterproof parkas and rain boots take the stage. Wild chicks rock out by mixing style indie inspired pieces together with indie and grunge elements: a unique “very Glasto-style”.
Prints and fabrics: sparkly animal prints and the American flag.
Lengths: extremely short or extremely long.
Accessories: festival wrist bands, colorful cotton foulards, “flappies” hats (Seventies) or masculine ones, mirrored shades in flashy colors, fringes, fringes and once again more fringes on gilets, jackets and on the strap of The Manitoba, Dsquared2’s new it bag.
Shoes: Versatile cheerful heel rainboots for the day and night, all made of rubber and treated to have a particular mud-like effect. A similar treatment was created for the jean fabrics custom made for Madonna’s “Drowned World Tour” in 2001.
Colors: vivid and crazy just like the crowd! Banners, ribbons and curtains wave to the sound of rock. Yellow, orange, magenta, purple, turquoise and grass green. As drops of rain start to hit the stage and the grass, the greens become browns. It’s raining but who cares: We ♥ MUD!
