Gypsy and Russian influences intermingled to sexy-folkloric effect in the Dsquared² Pre-Fall 2015 collection. Dean and Dan Caten created shocking contrasts by intermingling blanket-like knitted fabrics with grungy black leather and flirty fringes in a number of bold looks, like the high-waisted ethnic skirt with a leather insert on the waist and a side slit that looked so chic in combination with the simplistic black turtleneck, or the pair of deconstructed leather culottes with a quilted design and lots of punk rock zips that came teamed with a knitted turtleneck sweater with ethnic patterns.
From rich burgundy and red to black, cobalt blue and yellow, the collection features quite pleasant autumnal shades, which become even richer when combined with bold diagonal stripes, plaid, ethnic patterns and Matryoshka-inspired colorful floral patters in vivid colors, which decorated a lovely bohemian-style organza mini dress that we so much crave for. The same diversity exists in the fabrics, designs and lengths available, as we discover leather, wool, organza, chiffon, blanket-like materials and so on. The pants are cut at the tea-length mostly bringing back the trend of culottes, while the dresses and skirts are either super mini or tea-length with just two or three ensembles reaching the floor. To this end, we should mention those elegant floor-length gowns in black and cobalt blue closing the collection, as well as the gypsy-style maxi skirt with lush floral patterns.
