DSquared2’s party clothes took a backseat for Fall/Winter 2015. In their place were dozens of layered, practical looks to combat the cold, but, of course, it wouldn’t be DSquared2 without the brand’s infectious sense of fun at play. Layers may have been heavy, but they were never cumbersome. With a firm sense of decorative embellishment by way of Inuit and Native American graphics, this collection expressed exotic origins, which were amplified by tassels, fur, fringe, and feathers.

The styling concept at DSquared2 was unique, with tribal-printed bodysuits worn underneath multiple layers of jackets and vests. In turn, these exotic elements were juxtaposed with uber-femme accessories, like enormous crystal chandelier earrings and brightly colored elbow-length gloves. Stacks of textures comprised single looks, which combined elements like denim shirts, plaid jackets, and shrunken silk vests with either military or native-inspired outerwear. A few curious oddities stood out, like pegged jodhpurs, Victorian nightshirts (worn as blouses), and culottes with golden admiral’s trim along the cuff, which made strange bedfellows with all of the brightly printed Native American patterns. However, there was plenty to enjoy in the way of stylish, pragmatic clothes, like a stunning blanket coat that was transformed into a skirt trimmed with fringe, or a shapely white top encircled with feathers at the forearm. Two splendid Old West saloon gowns finished out the show, but the biggest impression was left by DSquared2’s amazing fur “Eskimo” coats. While the brand’s signature party clothes were visibly absent from the proceedings, Dean and Dan Caten still had plenty of tricks up their sleeves to delight a youthful consumer.
