A maverick glam rock star walks off the stage and onto a London street, picking up some style details from working class youth subculture along the way. The Dsquared2 Men’s Spring Summer 2017 collection is shaped by androgynous glitz meets quiet rebel. He’s a tough guy who wants to wear it all: a kilt, razor-slim motorcycle pants and platform boots encrusted with star embroidery.
In the lineup, opulence is pinned to spiky masculinity. Tonal sequins are appliquéd on a camouflage pattern parka and pants. Spangled knits are paired with acid bleached jeans and stacked heel platform boots. A Japanese-style floral silk jacquard covers a bomber and elongates the base of a ripped denim jacket.
In the spirit of Dsquared2’s DNA which meshes disparate points-of-view to create a new statement, the collection unifies the worlds of glam rock with British urban street culture.
The denim is mainly in acid wash and bleached, and features a lot of paint splatters.
