Dsquared2 spring 2017 men’s



CLASSIFIED AD: in need of fashion interpreter for collection review! Candidate must be fluent in hype and bullshit and MUST know how to explain away the emperor’s new clothes. Best said… in need of qualified  fawning person who knows nothing of fashion and yet oohs and aahs  at any collection that supposedly has a “hip/hot” quotient.

Someone needs to tell me what this was about... yes glam rock, yes 70’s, yes 80’s punk even a tad of 50s nerd. Yes platforms. Yes piercings. Yes pedal pushers and high water pants. Yes kinky boots, maybe androgyny, maybe drag or was it just an excuse for the vertically challenged twins to wear thigh high patent leather platform boots and parade down a  runway showing their audience that they are indeed capable of walking in them. Yes, I get it that they must have cast a show based on whether these clones could clop down a runway wearing these absurd glitter boots and booties.

So after the supposed shock of the footwear, I saw torn second skin jeans... AGAIN... some glitter tops, a pile of jackets and not much else except maybe the sequin overlay camo pieces which yes were pretty great but where is one wearing a sequined camo anorak? Someone needs to explain this to me …. Any volunteers??
