Continuing what they did for the Pre-Fall 2021 season, the Caten twins of Dsquared2 continued to play with an intentionally trash-glam look, true to their uplifting and joyful idea of fashion which built their fashion success.

The idea was expressed in a key look of an oversized coat – a mashup of different styles and completed with a built-in check shirt – wide legged pants and thick soled moccasins styled on Patrick Cox’s iconic Wannabe design from the 90s.
Dean and Dan Caten have collaborated this season with the Canadian shoe designer Patrick Cox, the man behind the iconic Wannabe loafer and a teenage friend of Dean and Dan Caten. Restyling the Wannabe’s famed square-toe form, the Wanna-D2 comes in different styles: a chunky heeled loafer – one featuring silver chain hardware on the top – or ankle boot.
Outdoor references came through the collection, built with Dsquared2 heritage such as thick hand knits inspired by Canadian curling sweaters with fair isle patterns, the maple leaf or Smokey the Bear, patches of blankets and check wools stitched on puffer jackets, waxed cotton jackets, work pants styles coated in splatters of paint that look like a camo pattern, cowboy shirts adorned with sequin embellishments, blazers with chain fringes details or even checked shirts decorated with pearls and sequins.
