Ciao ragazzi .. Benvenuti a Milano e hop a bordo del treno di moda!
first glance at the Catens’ vision for Spring 2014, one might have
thought that the molded pieces were actually beach attire but, alas,
poor them, they are actually silly dresses for those who crave any kind
of attention they can get by pouring themselves into these teeny tiny
frocks and then overflowing at every possibly boundary!!! Muffin alert!!
here’s the skinny, hahahaha, these guys touch every base especially
when it comes to grabbing attention. What I find perplexing, besides
the actual existence of this collection, is the mindset that allows
anyone to think this is a collection at all! Granted, there really are
some beautiful PIECES buried within the rubble that is called Dsquared2, but there are way too many points of view here to coalesce as a collection.
is the obvious luxury aspect to see, then for Spring, the ode to the
50s and 60s and then the expected media grab aspect; I am guessing that
the real question is .. “Why is this taken seriously?” as a collection.
In my opinion , this is a pile of clothes thrown together to call a
collection and yet you need some kind road map to hold it all together
based on any kind of theme or logic. Unless of course, there is some
social treatise that accompanies this collection as if that will make it
For me, there is no need of knowing inspirations
and that intellectual hoo ha as there is only one thing that remains...
the CLOTHES! Yes, this is a business of selling clothes and not
brainwashing or justification. Clothes, oddly enough, is the currency
that is traded here, not hype, not intelligence, but can you sell them
to a store and then can the store sell them .. it really cannot get any
more basic than that. So, who do you know who can afford or would want
to wear any of this given the stratospheric price points? Huh.. I am
waiting.... Oh, and where are they wearing them?
I hope the
Catens haven’t utilized the same concepts for their restaurant otherwise
you will be eating spam at Il Baretto prices!
