Given the current climate of the world right now, we are more desperate than ever for some escapism full of peace, love and soul — the very flavours of Dsquared2’s Fall Winter 2022 Womenswear Collection which debuted in Milan yesterday morning. Featuring a runway full of bohemian travellers, the collection is a spiritual journey in itself, with the goal to explore better places not yet discovered. With an earthy colour palette and durable textures flooding through the collection, Dsquared2 sets themselves as pioneers: using their fashion to create clothes that promote harmony within the global community.
The Italian brand embodies the love and spirit of bohemian travellers for their latest instalment to womenswear.
Daring designs of bold patterns and Aztec prints account for much of the collection, a direct nod to the adventure and discovery which the collection stands for. A safari-like feel is evoked from the use of camel and khaki colours, which make their way onto distressed knits, oversized satin combats and padded ponchos.
In true voyager style, almost every style comes complete with multiple layers as a form of protection, along with thick-soled boots and puffer nylon shoes to tread softly over fresh ground. Taking it back to the noughties with quilted mini skirts over jeans, or flannel shirts over denim jackets, the collection puts discovery at the forefront – departing from the fitted cuts that suit the male gaze. Though merging with nature, the collection ensures that the travellers are celebrated with vibrant colours and contrasting prints — delivering the message that no-one should be scared to venture out into the world.
A staple of every woman’s winter wardrobe will undoubtedly include denim, and Dsquared2 swiftly follows suit. Offering multiple variations of smart/casual looks in a range of asymmetric cuts, the label revolutionise the way in which we view denim wear for women. With relaxed hemlines, oversized trouser legs and free-flowing fabric, the collection encapsulates the modern day woman through the lens of freedom — giving her room to breathe, explore and thrive.
With endless possibilities in mind, Dsquared2 did not limit themselves to one specific group of travellers. Incorporating tribal accents, multiple articles of patchwork knit feature within the collection, washed down to provide added comfort to its models. Subtle details aid the adventurous woman, such as the addition of pom poms to plain fabric and the gentle ring of the bell-adorned accessories. With comforting shapes, empowering styles and harmonious colours, the AW 22 collection is ready to tread the winter earth with peace and love.
