Canadian twins Dean and Dan Caten brought the beach to the catwalk for their Dsquared2 Spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection in Milan. A plethora of bathing suits—from cut-out one-pieces to bikinis—were paired with chiffon skirts in fuchsia, lemon yellow, cobalt blue, lilac, and grass green. And while there were a few boyish chinos, for the most part the collection featured mini dresses.
Founders: Dean and Dan Caten
Owners: Dean and Dan Caten
Designers: Dean and Dan Caten
Year Established: 2003
Spring 2016 Inspiration: The beach.
Star Pieces: The cut-out one-pieces and bikinis will offer a luxe spin to your beachwear, while the sequined black blazer and tie-die yoga pants are also staples—just not paired together.
The Middle Eastern Sale: Our clients will gravitate towards the eye-catching swimsuits and should give the colorful rope harness accessories a try.
Drawbacks: The tattoo print unitards and bodycon bandage dresses take the biker girl look too far.
