What better time to unveil a surfer-themed collection than smack-bang in the middle of summer? Taking to Milan, the Caten duo Dean and Dan have showcased DSQUARED2’s vibrant Spring/Summer 2023 Menswear collection – and what a showcase it was.

Paying homage to the Bob Marley Foundation, the collection features everything from 70s-inspired outerwear to the symbolic use of colours in the Jamaican flag (yellow, black and green). In an additional collaboration with Honda motorcycles, Dsquared2 combine their Marley inspiration with two starkly contrasting personas; the relaxed surfer and the rambunctious biker. And while a junction between the musical legend and the motorcycle company may seem a little odd at first, there’s actually a deep-rooted vein that joins the two together in perfect harmony – the designers aimed to symbolise both the vibe and rebellion of Marley’s time, surf culture, and 1970s Jamaica.

The collection features everything from reggae-inspired graphic print tees, tie-dyed sarongs and flared denim, to patchworked leather jackets and metal-embellished mini denim shorts. Playing up on the surfer-meets-biker energy, the models, often styled with flowery, relaxed and colourful pieces, are also seen wearing biker boots and donning totes with printed images of Bob Marley on them – a perfect ode to the pair of influences.
