Dsquared2: Menswear AW23

It’s about time the Dsquared2 twins leaned into all things Y2K. The low-slung, rhinestone-covered, barely-there fashions you’ve seen parading down your local high street as of late first came to be on Dean and Dan Caten’s catwalks in the early 2000s. For their AW23 menswear collection, the Canadian twosome looked back to look forward, studying their first ever womenswear show (AW03), where Naomi Campbell famously commenced proceedings by sprinting towards a Boeing jet – in high heels, we must add, carrying a bunch of shopping bags – before strutting down the catwalk.

20 years later, the pair revisited the codes which shaped the brand through a campy study of jocks, geeks, goths and emos – remaking the different troupes in a distinctly Dsquared2 light. Set against a messy teen bedroom, plastered wall-to-ceiling in posters, out came Daisy Dukes so skimpy they were practically denim knickers, worn alongside camisoles proposed as going-out tops and corduroy chinos that peeled away to reveal a second waistband. Trucker caps came with their own tiaras, jeans hung dangerously low and sugary pink babygrows stamped with “It’s a Boy!” became crop tops. Other slogan tees and belt buckles read “Darlin’”, “I Love Bear” and “Chocked” (in the style of the Coca-Cola logo). It was all killer, no filler.
