Marching on

The Caten twins are known for their signature flamboyance and unwavering confidence. Where last season saw them look towards the Wild West, this season was influenced by military uniforms: in typical DSquared2 style, the apparent functionality of the looks did not undermine the sensual spirit of the collection. For women, corsetry was deconstructed and draped across the torso. Patent leather trousers and shorts for both sexes were paired with practical patchwork jackets.

Women’s looks were surprisingly romantic, presented against ominous red linear lighting. A draped and ruched dress featured a dramatic high-low hem and was constructed from parachute material, reconstructed with major aplomb. Elsewhere delicate ruffles and billowing structures were counteracted by strappy sport-luxe sandals. For men, camouflage utility trousers were later replaced by futuristic neon pieces, featuring colour-blocking and metallic sheens. Take-home styling tips included pairing boxy, oversized silhouettes with chunky trainers and slicked-back hair.
