UPTOWN MEETS DOWNTOWN ON THE DANCE FLOOR
Dressing up and crossing town to let it all out on the dance floor, the Dsquared2 woman of next summer is royalty on the streets of the 80s. Her look is high color, high glam mixed with marching band uniform details.
Adorning herself in symbols of luxe—animal prints, plush mink, sequins and ribbons, the Dsquared2 femme of next summer rotates a lineup of mini-dresses, bodysuits, skirts and glitzed-up denim. Every piece is laden with detail. Puffed shoulders decorated with grosgrain ribbon bows, top embroidered jackets, and mini skirts are finished with rouche bunches of silk faille.
Slinky mini dresses are lush in color and texture: silk shoulders, transparent bodices appliquéd with military-style black or gold bouillon, the skirt in contrast zebra stripes or leopard spots. Ornate embroidery work covers cropped bomber jackets: one features gold Dsquared2 house crests and gold metal lace ribbons and livery embroidery, another in leopard spots embellished with black beads.
Black diagonal stripes on skirts and tops are covered with gauzy chiffon. Sitting low on the hips, oversized jeans are cropped or long. Ultra-treatments including dappled acid-washes, white-out bleaching, rips and darns are glamourized in several looks with a coating of glossy transparent sequins or allover crystals.
Surreal-inspired motifs are hammered into enamel laden metal accessories topped with grosgrain bows. A jeweled eye, open lips smoking a cigarette, a cross and a heart are then crafted into earrings, brooches and decorative hardware on satin pointed toe sling-backs, and open-toe stiletto boots that lace up with velvet ribbons.
Diverse sized DD bags—in the collection’s sequin studded plaids, glossy satins and animal prints—have handles designed to link together. The new mini sized DD with a top handle is made for joining the party on the dance floor.
