New Brand Launch: Stanley Kane

By January 16, 2014Fashion News

A full cell block, grey concrete runway, and the sound of police sirens set the scene for Dsquared2’s show. The first model is dragged out by two nurses and led out onto the runway.

The sartorial collection was introduced by a blend of bright orange boiler suit, quilted bombers and all black, classically tailored suits. Denim was dominantly the primary fabric used this fall for Dsquared2. Wether it was distressed, patched, zipped or had exposed pockets. They absolutely ignored the double denim myth and proved us all wrong. The show continued with looks including a sleek leather suit coat, sweatshirts with “Penitentiary Cell Block No.24689” motifs and rust metallic trousers. The layering was indefectible.

Cropped ankle trousers and oversized silhouettes were prominent throughout. Each model/inmate had details such as a doctors bag, keys or chains. Inmates details included thick black rimmed glasses, leather restraining straps, laced doc marten-like boots, and chiseled cheeks.

The last look of the collection consisted of an all white straight jacket paired with matching shorts, socks and shoes look.

Our favourite here at PAUSE was the denim sweater and sweatpants combination. Sporty yet denim? Perfectly genius.
