As usual, theatrics ruled the runway at Dsquared², with beer-toting band-aid baring models clad in a head-to-toe outdoorsy “gone-fishin'” theme. Canadian brothers Dean and Dan Caten seemed to be inspired by the renewed interest in heritage brand workwear and outerwear, accessorizing their looks with thick hiking socks worn with heavy platform sandals and patch-emblazoned trucker hats. The clothes ranged from sturdy roll-cuffed shorts paired with cut-neck tees and plaid bikini tops to full-length gowns draped with tartan camping blankets, to miniskirts and dresses made from plasticized fabric in construction-worker brights. Spike embellishments and touches of neon lent a bit of urban-edge to the functional Boyscout-esque looks, striking an offbeat yet somehow cohesive balance between city and forest. Despite the over-the-top approach to the runway Dsquared² is known for, when taken apart there were a plethora of pieces that will be Junior must-haves for Spring.
