For Dsquared2 Spring 2013 Dean and Dan went clubbing in Berlin. Think a little S&M with heavy doses of gothic schoolboy.
The show started out with uniform looks of black trousers, white shirts and skinny ties with animal print pieces; a denim jacket edged with leopard came with a leopard print military hat and skinny tie for flair. The palette stayed in simple black and white with the exception of a few pops of hot fluo pink. Patent leather trousers, shorts, collars and lapels took the schoolboy look from nice to naughty in a major way.
Accessories were a MAJOR part of the collection as well as embellishments. Spiked belts, huge layered necklaces, leather cuffs and lapel chains accented with crosses gave the collection a punk rock vibe keeping in tune with the edgy feel of the show. Alternative cult classics like creepers in black and leopard print as well as high leather boots made appearances during the show as well. The collection was fluid and consistent with themed basics, all attributes Dean and Dan have always set themselves apart with.
