Italian fashion label, DSQUARED2, is everywhere and we like it!
Dean and Dan Caten are the Canadian twins behind the Italian fashion label, DSQUARED2. From a young age, the duo always knew they wanted to be in fashion. They moved from their hometown of Toronto to enroll in Parsons and later dropped out to work as designers for various brands. At age thirty the two went all in and headed to Milan to build their own Italian fashion label. Today, the brand includes mens, women’s, accessories, children’s, fragrance, a restaurant and enormous stores in London, Paris and three U.S. locations.
Models love Dean and Dan. Chanel Iman told InStyle that she practically grew up with them. Models Naomi Campbell, Lexi Boling, Binx Walton, Issa Lish, Catherine McNeil and Sports Illustrated babe, Hannah Davis are all part of the Italian fashion label’s bad girl’s club.
The duo always seems to draw an exuberant mix of models, music artists, celebs and extreme fashion enthusiasts. A few of their A-List clients include the most badass women in pop history including Madonna, Beyonce, Rhianna, and Jennifer Lopez.
