Pop that collar. Knot your sweater on your shoulders and then let’s get down and dirty. All you honeys and hustlers, it’s happening in Palm Beach. Next summer the wasps from the country club are trying out adult film stardom for size. Mixing preppy essentials with raunchy details, the Dsquared2 Spring/Summer 2024 collection is a mash-up that also riffs on looks from archive Dsquared2 collections.
Golf and tennis inspired wear is mixed with raw signatures. A men’s striped polo is hybridized with a striped buttoned shirt, jean shorts and argyle socks, a women’s tennis skirt is mixed with an elaborate pearl necklace combined with double-breasted jacket, with metallic ankle-laced sandals decorated with marijuana leaves. A familiar logo, the Rolling Stones’ iconic tongue, is given new dimension in a beaded women’s top, and as a men’s vertical sliced tank.
Denim comes unadulterated and sexy, the girls’ low slung jeans cut-out below the waistband and on the thighs with a network of resin rings, the guys washed and reworked jeans with a zip-away back revealing underwear – a cut inspired by a Dsquared2 jeans silhouette from the 2000s.
An ultimate mix-up statement, men’s tie fabric is cut into a women’s miniskirt and styled with a boucle’ jacket inbuilt with a shirt, worn with delicate ankle-wrapped sandals adorned with quilted flowers. In an array of pastels, quilted flowers and butterflies decorate a nude mini dress with corset waist. A crystal stone-covered argyle cardigan is modeled into a mini dress, its neckline and shoulders featuring the knotted sleeves, as if they were casually slung there. Another version of the striped rugby shirt is cropped and knotted at the bust, with a built-in bra underneath.
Accessories include the gothic belt bag, with rugby style laces on the sides, the Open Your Heart bag shaped in the form of a heart comes in glitter-specked resin, and underwear in baseball cap mesh. The back of a baseball cap with its connecting strap is built into the sleeve cuffs of a women’s cropped denim jacket.
