DSquared2 Resort 2016.

DSquared2 Resort 2016.

Dean and Dan Caten produced a Resort collection for their 2016 DSquared² collection, that while including some nice and exciting fare, proved ultimately, Juvenile and Puzzling. The looks, on the whole, had a 12-under vibe that didn't play out as an adult take on childish clothing, it just looked like an adult dressing in high-end Kid's clothes. Another aspect, Zero Sophistication. The Caten's work looked Mall Chain Store quality. For Never 22 or some such thing. The most interesting piece was a Mini-Checked peacoat trimmed in vibrant Yellow. 

The DSquared² collection had a visible fun-ness that was hard to escape, it also had a searing lack of haute-ness and chicness. The Caten's found inspiration, as the set from their look book would imply, from the school yard... And it showed! Unfortunately, that's where it should have stayed. 

That's All.
