The wait is over, it has been made official on social media, the S/S2017 D2 men’s show takes place tomorrow Friday at 8pm CET (Milan time), at the headquarters, number 7 via Ceresio.
What do we know….?
Well, in a post next week we will explain how we actually managed to ‘illegally’ see some pieces of the collection, but that doesn’t help figure out the whole theme of the show, in particular when Dsquared2 has runways themes with a very strong identity, which later can be seen in non-catwalk pieces like the pre-collection, t-shirts…
Through what has been posted by the official channels it seems that the common denominator is the twin’s lives before Dsquared2, from birth to the first show in 1995.
The main components we can identify have to do with Dean and Dan’s childhood in Canada; note the focus here does not seem to be the deep Canada that inspired the ICON collection but instead the urban Toronto of the late 60’s and 70’s, with elements like disco, glam rock and street fights.
Of course we could be totally wrong but this is what we are led to believe from the official D2 accounts posting of a short clip of still images which is deconstructed below (it seems quite personal as it is hard to imagine the house and the gardens not being the Caten’s).
