Dsquared2 FW12 1

Once again, DSquared2 highlights denim on the runway, merging it into the label's streetwise looks and formal attire selections for FW 12. Inspired by high school detention halls, 1950s youth culture and the iconic style of James Dean, the collection has tough, sexy appeal.

My favorite runway looks feature the denim jacket as a mid layer, over shirts and ties, and under overcoats, suit vests and leather jackets. Turtleneck knits look right with button-front shirts, while the argyle-inspired denim shirt is a novel standout. Low-rise fits and carrot silhouettes are standard at DSquared2, in either clean, dark indigo or washed-down with localized distressing.
