DSquared Autumn/Winter 2012-13, Milan Fashion Week
The DSquared2 duo of Dean and Dan Caten went back to high school for inspiration while very much taping into what's best in contemporary fashion with a slick, upbeat fall 2012 collection.
Before a high school yard featuring bandstand and basketball hoops, and a banner that read "Welcome to Caten High School Graduation Class 2013," the twin designers sent out some very memorable memorabilia fashion.
Ultimately, the whole point of creating a collection and putting it on a runway is to create clothes than make women look beautiful and feel better about themselves. And the Catens, by dint of their savvy eyes, smart tailoring and exuberant humor, manage to do that better than the vast majority of their contemporaries. These Canadian-born twins are the kings of Hip European sportswear.
