For Dsquared2 designers Dean and Dan Caten, nothing is ever “too much.” The design duo’s spring ’18 co-ed collection, shown today at Milan Fashion Week, featured a maximalist approach, from sequins and frills to hundreds of buckles fastened onto shoes and clothing.
The standout shoe this season came in the form of a multibuckled men’s leather boot. For the women’s version, the brand did a stiletto sandal version as well. But the buckles didn’t stop there: The shoes were worn with leather trousers with buckles all along the sides, as well, making for a full waist-to-toe effect.
Elsewhere in the ready-to-wear collection, the Caten brothers showed clashing combos — think leopard and Hawaiian prints worn together — as well as a few evening looks, including teal tuxedos for him and black ruffled gowns for her. While the shoes didn’t change throughout the show, there was enough visual distraction elsewhere to detract us. Almost too much.
