Dsquared is an Italian fashion house founded in Milan by Canadian Brothers Dean and Dan Caten, born from Italian parents. They studied at the Parson’s School of Design in New York and in 1984 began their first collaborations at international level in the world of fashion. Eight years later, they decided to make the big leap toward Italy. Then, in 1994, the Canadian designers presented their first man collection. This marked the beginning of a long series of shows rich of extravagances. Thanks to the intelligent mix of fashion and music they caught the attention of journalists and buyers from all over the world.
Their style is an intelligent mix of irreverent canadian wit and refined italian tailoring, combined with a particular care for details.
This philosophy gave to the brand a unique concept of alternative of luxury. In the course of the last two years, Dsquared2 has grown up to become more chic and sophisticated while maintaining that stretch provocative that is so distinctive of the brand. This evolution brought the brand to a wider target and allowed the expansion of its clientele. The Kidswear division resumes the same philosophy of the main collections.
The aesthetics Dsquared2 is continuously influenced by international inspirations and various cultures. Dean and Dan divide their lives between Milan and London, while production is made in Italy. Born in Canada, Living in London, Made in Italy" is the motto of the brand.
