The DSquared2 girl finds herself institutionalised for AW14, read about it here.
Unlike most, the DSquared2 girl gets to take her incredible wardrobe to the mental institution with her. She was once a glamour star, that was until she lost her mind. Pre-fall gave us a big clue for the silhouette, the sixties is a huge inspiration with micro-mini skirts, capes, cigarette pants and long shift dresses straight from Mrs Robinsons back.
Textures play a big part with mink inserts, incredible python skins, feathers, jewels and paillettes, a sad reminder of her extravagant former life. Floor length sheath dresses have capes adorned with black feathers and gown have busts trimmed with crystal bows at the waist.
All holding on to the dramatic femininity, daywear continues the theme of drama and opulence. White leather replicating nurses uniforms are worn with double breasted capes, silk pants have lurex pattern and are paired with white fur tops. Theres a hell of a lot of snakeskin (never a bad thing), emerald and teal glossy python skins are cut into long-sleeved short tunic and a cropped jacket with matching pumps, hats and bags.
Accessories follow the institutional theme with straps on shoes like restraining braces others with metal scaffolding and doctor bags, the glamour aspect shines through in rectangle clutches embellished with mink, plumage or jewels. A mini clutch with handles is encased in scaffolding-like metal. Felted round high hats with narrow brims are trimmed in fur. Bracelets and neck cuffs are also styled like braces. Any sixties look wouldn’t be complete without giant Jackie O sunglasses, all adorned for the added opulence the DSquared2 girl once held so dear.
