Another boutique highlight this week comes from "born in Canada, made in Italy" brand: Dsquared2.
Dsquared was created by twins Dean, and Dan Caten, a dynamic duo hailing from Toronto that got their start by studying at Parsons Design School in New York City in 1984. Eight years later the twins set off to Italy with their sights set on creating the brand they always dreamed of running. After a few years of collaborations with some Italy's most celebrated design houses, they released their first menswear collection under the label: Dsquared2. This first collection was the debut of "runway show extravaganzas" that captured the attention of journalists and buyers around the world. Since then the brand has been able to garner collaborations from huge names, some even coming from outside of the fashion industry, including hip-hop and pop superstar/fellow Canada native: Drake, as well as brands like Pepsi. Dsquared2's designs consist of an edgy aesthetic that features much Canadian iconography and then pairs that with refined Italian tailoring so as to mix "sporty" with "glamorous. The brand centers itself on this duality and strives to make products that allow to wearer to feel a bit rebellious while still maintaining high fashion design standards.
