Our favourite brand is well known for its cachet amongst North American celebrities, in particular those from the music industry, and the fashion media does not miss the opportunity to discuss the merits of such and such an outfit worn by RiRi or Queen Bey.
However there is a lesser covered connection, which is with the soccer world, or football, depending on who you are talking to.
D2 started a direct collaboration with a team by designing the off-field uniforms for the Turin Juventus F.C. in 2006.
Later on it would be Barcelona F.C. who would chose the twins to design the uniforms of the team, the technical staff, and management.
These consisted of tailor-made grey suits which featured a white cotton “TV fold” pocket square insert sewn inside the breast pocket (as sports people are less likely to take the care necessary to a foldable delicate silk item).
Despite the abscence of any official sponsorship or club partnership, the Italian brand is also very popular with players of other Spanish clubs, in particular those of Real Madrid.
Clothes, but also Dsquared2 sunglasses seem to be rather popular in football circles, as we can see below. Strange fact: in relation to eyewear, only a month ago the brand had organised a competition for its clients. Those who odered over 10 pieces were entered into a draw to win tickets for the opening match of the cup (France/Romania)!
And finally, there are players who just enjoy hanging out with Dean and Dan.
