Fairytale meets grunge for the denim king’s otherworldly new collection.
Dsquared2 have gone fairytale grunge for their Spring Summer 2022 collection. An oxymoron in itself, the designs show the sharp contrast Dean and Dan Caten, founders of Dsquared2, have become synonymous with – think tulle with tailoring, military romanticism and tough textures with delicate details. Inviting us into their fairytale world located in an ethereal reworked warehouse, the collection was every bit as grunge and mysterious as you’d expect.
Designed with a past, future and present in mind, the collection unveiled a dreamy spirit and every element of fantasy with vintage aesthetics shining through. From the intricate eye-catching jewellery to the must-have chunky boots, the collection echoed the fun and free-spirited nature of the brand, with each layer more detailed than the next.
The girls appear elegant; sheathed in layers of lace, tulle and gauzy florals. But paired with platforms and rugged details, they prove they are not to be messed with whilst fruit pendants with butterflies to boot, bring a sense of the natural world into the concrete backdrop.

Step over Brothers Grimm, the Dsquared2 boys make their grand entrance fluttering in fairy wings with patchwork and destroyed knits highlighting the whimsicality and edge the Canadian brand have become masters of. Bombers and deconstructed camoflauge print turn these fairytale sweethearts into Gods of grunge emblazoned with looks to kill and denim has been given a whole new dimension with upcycled vintage Dsquared2 pieces that have been layered to perfection.
