So of the many menswear shows only a few actually put on a show. Two of my hands down favorite designers and have been my favorite for a LONG TIME are Dan and Dean Caten from Dsquared2. They always bring youth and craziness along with a show and this year proves no different. This year in addition to leather, sequins, and sheer material, the models were clothed in blood. Splatters on shirts, and drips on bare chests accented, low slung pants and oversized jackets. It was pretty simple, if you wanted a show just as you wanted fashion, Dsquared2 is definitely the way to go.
I guess it’s fitting that our post number 300 is one about Dsquared2, since I LOVE the line and have ever since I got into fashion seriously. It was the first brand that I ever researched and stayed up on. The first line that I would sift through photos over at Style.com for. It was my introduction into fashion and I loved it! This campaign… well it just reaffirms my love.

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot have captured the youthfulness of the Dsquared2 line in this campaign, although it wasn’t too hard seeing that their runway show was basically a walking campaign. They could have most definitely taken stills from the show, slapped on the name and said that was their campaign. But they didn’t of course, Dan and Dean are too wonderful for that.
Ever ones for combining convention and fun(I think the first show I saw was combining the working mechanic with something else that was definitely the opposite) Dan and Dean combined campers along with the modern business man that resulted in a collection, show, and campaign that are positively campy. With a feel of grown up boy scouts, this collection only reaffirms my love for the label!(although I’m not all that into Launch My Line, the television show the twins host)
