Dsquared2 Resort 2016 Collection
The Dsquared2 brand is really taking off at lightning speed of late. It appears that they are attacking the markets with gusto, ready to win over the masses with incredible passion, one, which matches the manner by which they show off their talent through their designs. With the label’s designs often having a specific muse behind them, it is nothing special to know that Dan and Dean Caten had the lady who surfs in mind when they created the looks in the fabulous Dsquared2 resort 2016 collection. Between layers of ultrafine knit leggings and turtlenecks that work well together to create the scuba gear effects, along with the contrasting sporty mixed with bohemian designs, we have to say that this is a pretty awesome line-up.
There is something about the way the dresses have been layered over the black turtleneck and leggings that has us seeing the outfits with a more amused eye. Add gorgeous sandals to the mix with the double ankle straps and you have a look that is more conservative and sexy at the same time. Mix up the pieces a little and make the turtleneck a crop top worn under a bright orange blazer in adorable floral prints, combine it with matching skirts and the awesome tight leggings, and you have an outfit that was made to be danced in, the scuba girl taking her looks to the stage for some Latin fun. Of course, the orange can be replaced with neutral to blue patchwork as well, the midriff left slightly bare, while the rest of the body is modestly covered up, except for the slight problem of too tight pieces worn underneath the mock skirt suit.
Possibly one of the loveliest looks of the entire Dsquared2 resort 2016 collection, however, is the maxi dress with the slit up the thigh that has been complemented with tight leggings in black underneath, the dress itself cinched at the waist with a belt and with long sleeves to look like the diver is attending a rather special occasion. A wedding perhaps? Her own? The lame plisse maxi dress with the wrapped bodice sure does bring sparkle to the small line-up of lovely pieces.
The Hawaiian hibiscus on the cropped blazer aside, this is a bohemian based collection that takes on the 1970s with a new force, appealing to the senses and the trends we have gotten used to for 2015. Between the biker jackets and the suede patchwork, the little mini dresses worn with leggings and the general feel of the collection, this most definitely warrants a good second look, if not an outright purchase.
