Designers At Work- DSQUARED2

Dsquared2 is a high-end fashion label out of Italy, created by identical twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten.  They opened their flagship store in Milan in June of 2007, complete with an exclusive Champagne bar.  They have also opened stores in Capri, Istanbul, Kiev, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Dean and Dan Caten are originally from Toronto, Canada and have studied at Parsons in New York as well as working for the house of Gianni Versace in Milan.

The DSquared2 label combines outdoorsy details (fur-trimmed coats, plaid, chunky knits) with a glam-rock aestheitc, such as biker jackets and hand-stiched denim. This line is a favorite of musicians like Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, and Madonna, who asked the duo to create more than 150 pieces for her 2002 Drowned World Tour.
