It was as though Dan and Dean Caten had taken a well-to-do lady to an ’80s disco so that she could get a taste of the underground clubs, mixing elegance with glamour. A cascade of sparkle fell on the Dsquared2 collection, covering denim with crystals, animal with beads and adding shine with gold lurex. Despite the twins’ much loved sense of excess, there was also harmony in how they put the outfits together. Comfortable wrinkled or sporty trousers were paired with bits of majorette uniforms or short embroidered sheaths were packed with bows on the sleeves with gathered fabrics at the hips. In all this chaos, two elements were the main focus of the creative process: the sleeves, whether short or long, were voluminous, puff and bubble, or in fur, and denim, featured in cropped or oversize jeans or little jackets or shirts, as well as illuminated, ripped and bleached.
