Dsquared²’s Fall/Winter 2011-12 collection pays tribute to the pioneers who colonized the territory of the United States of America during the 18th century. In a landscape often unpredictable and cold they crossed the country with their bull carriages, braving the snowy inhospitable mountains.
The secret for survival: wear layers upon layers of clothing in order to ward of the staggering cold. The silhouette is wide and comfortable to ease movement. Felts, washed leathers and shearling outerwear mixed with knitted details.
The typical pioneer workwear is presented with “chinos” and stone washed cotton overalls. Aprons are worn as vests and the gauze or classic poplin shirt have round collars.
The henley sweater is worn with suspenders. The boots have been treated in order to give an aged and worn effect.
The dark washed denim has a vintage quality rendered even more authentic by the presence of velvet patches. An absolute innovation: wool denim for the pants and jackets.
The color palette has two protagonists: black and white, interspersed with shades of beige, gray and navy blue.
The classic Dsquared² check is back, alternating with jacquard stripes and textures.
