Dean and Dan Caten’s new collection for women picked up where their spring/summer 2016 menswear show their left off- at the beach. DJ played Chicks on Speed’s „Super Surfer Girl“ .Waves splashed on the backdrop of the otherwise stark set and out strutted Mariacarla Boscono in a cutout maillot and hip-slung boy pants, a tangle of colorful climbing ropes harnessing her torso. This hasn’t been a big week for bathing suits, but the Catens gave us several different varieties, from sporty one-pieces to slinky little bikinis strung up with crystals. Sexy has more or less gone out of fashion in Milan, but not DSquared2. Aside from those boyish trousers and a couple of pairs of high-waisted, tie-dyed jeans, the look here was seriously leggy. Pleated chiffon maxi skirts split open in the front, and otherwise it was all minis. Leather bandage dresses. Knit tube dresses worn two at a time. And, best of all, clingy scuba Dresses in tropical prints with bold swipes of color and three-dimensional embroideries. I wished me to see more denim, a few pairs of bold jeans which twins Caten are designed so good.Anyway,t his collection showcased the Catens’s strengths: sexy, athletic silhouettes; special denim; their insatiable eye for color. It also exposed a weakness: their too-strappy, overly high platform shoes.
Dsquared2 provided the real highlight of MFW’s day four. This collection is one of the best collections we have been seen until now.
