DSquared2 Fall 2009 RTW


I think the WWD Staff said it best when they called Dan and Dean Caten’s runway walk for Fall 2009 “a kiss-off to the recession”. With huge Jackie-O glasses, freshly done dye jobs and Venti Americano cups in hands, the models at Dsquared2 were looking more Denise Richards than Bryant Park.

The design duo that is Dsquared rocked out their show with huge heels, newsboy caps, plaid shirts and even pvc leggings. Yes, you better believe it, they didn’t miss the opportunity to pretty much pour in every trend that is around today, butI will say that it was all done with an easy LA-flair, that only the Caten’s (and Rachel Zoe…ok, and every stylist on the west coast…) can turn out.

When looking at this season as compared to their Spring 2009 RTW show, I do see a beautiful continuity beginning to glow for the Catens, however. Last season, with glossy long haired models strutting down the catwalk (same glasses) and luxe (read: rich) air, we felt Hollywood too. Yet, it was as if at that point we were watching the film of Charlie’s Angels. The girls might as well have been holstering rifles! This season though, not the case. This season, it’s like we are seeing Demi, Cam, Drew and Lucy Liu stepping off the set and out and about the town. Do you see it? Is it just me? Or maybe it’s the Starbucks cups…

Regardless, I love the looks. Even if it is everything that we are already seeing on everyone…

I’d wear it! (Oh…wait a minute…oops! I already do!)
