DSquared2 Crosses Geek Chic With Skater Style for Pre-Spring 2016


Dean and Dan Canten, design duo and brothers behind label DSquared2, have always been consistent when it comes to infusing subcultures and breaking sartorial barriers with their seasonal collections. Pre-Spring 2016 is no different. There’s a myriad of influences here – from skater boys, to surfer dudes, and a twinge of geek chic. Strings of looks are spun to create an undefineable aesthetical web, and it’s all part of the  DSquared2 appeal. It’s certainly refreshing that primary colours co-existing with soft pastels dominate a segment of the colour palette (duh, it’s spring!) as we rarely spot that level of tonal harmony in menswear. Baggy silhouettes a la laidback surfer bum and a sprinkling of hip-hop style elements can also be found in the collection, making for a nice choice range of casual looks.
