Dsquared2 Fall 2018: Rhinestone Rebels

House of Holland Sale


Urban Cowboys And Cowgirls

Wild West Americana received the glamour treatment this season from Dan and Dean Caten with elaborately sequined rhinestone rebels wearing bolo ties, beading and floral embroidery on a backdrop of satin, silk, leather and denim. With their fine Italian tailoring and knack for over decoration, the Catens breathed new glamour into the most humblest of themes.

Plaid cowboy shirts, jeans and Victorian dresses crafted from fluid silk and embellished with pony skin inserts were nothing short of swoon worthy. Their signature five pocket jeans, which were shown in a range of washes and distressed treatments, juxtaposed with polished leather trousers trimmed with fringes, as well as more tailored styles worn with belts showing engraved metal buckles.

As the show progressed, the his-and-hers premise of the co-ed collection evolved into high glamour rendered into patch-worked scarf dresses that Dean attributed to Stevie Nicks, who served as a muse alongside KD Lang, Johnny Cash and Donna Summer. “If you put them into a blender, you’ve got this show,” he said. Whether they wanted to or not, in their anti-zeitgeist optimism the Catens summed up the ever-increasing theme of freedom that’s characterising every movement currently taking place in fashion, politics and beyond. As Dean reminded us, “Speak the truth and shame the devil!”
