Brand Spotlight: DSquared2
Perhaps Dean and Dan Caten were destined to be fashion legends. It’s unsurprising, given how many parallels can be drawn between them and the late, great Gianni Versace. Both are famous for innovative and bold designs, and both heavily feature nods to their childhoods throughout their work. Versace grew up in Italy playing amongst ancient ruins, whereas the Caten twins grew up in Canada, but you probably already knew that! Another striking similarity is the understanding of the power of music in promoting and growing a fashion brand. As Versace did, the Caten twins have worked with a number of prominent musical icons, most notably designing over 150 pieces for Madonna for her Drowned World Tour and Don’t Tell Me music video. Perhaps most notable at all, the Caten twins are Italian, their birth name being Catenacci. All may be coincidences, but it’s no secret the Caten twins have taken the fashion world by storm in much the same way Versace did. Launched in 1995, DSquared2 has since grown to a yearly turnover of €200 million. The brand has been worn by celebrities including Britney Spears, Kendrick Lamar and Lenny Kravitz, to name but a few.
