We take a look as Dsquared2’s 2014 womenswear Pre Fall Collection.
The influences behind Dsquared2’s latest Pre-Fall offering were easy to spot, with an array of sixties mod inspired silhouettes and prints that wouldn’t look out of place in a Mary Quant campaign. Except that Dan and Dean Caten took the mini skirt and halved it, hemlines skimmed just below the crotch. Note to self, don’t try this without a pair of 100 denier tights or legs like that of a runway model. Strictly no bending over ladies.
The collection consisted of shift dresses, capes, cigarette pants and coats like those worn by Twiggy in the sixties, and strike as something you’d spot Alexa Chung in. Some had graphic windowpane prints in monochrome, which made up the majority of the colour palette with infrequent flashes of burgundy, nude and copper. All over the black leather coat and equestrian hats.
The collection was shot in what looks like a derelict mental institution with crumbling walls and grated windows, at the time this may have seemed unusual but after seeing Dsquared2’s menswear show inspired by correctional institutions, it all makes sense. Some of the looks even included gold padlock chains. Who knows if the pair will continue the theme on to their AW14 womenswear, only time will tell.
