Dsquared2’s S/S 2023 MENSWEAR COLLECTION #D2SummerLove
Carving waves with his easy-going flow, Dsquared2’s Jamaican surfer is either in the water, or cruising on his bike on his way to a new swell.
His chill attitude and quirky character is explored in the Spring Summer 2023 collection. Multi-colour surfer prints, crochet and knits with flowers and stripes mix with tailoring and biker wear detailed with Honda’s iconic logo – part of a collaboration with the motorcycle company for the collection. An homage to the Bob Marley Foundation is found in prints and patches on outerwear, bags and T-shirts. Dsquared2 DNA gets tubed: maxi shorts in checked nylon, tie-dye shirts and hoodies are paired with flared 70s denim pants and soft leather ringed sandals.
A sarong tied at the waist is this surfer’s go-to, printed with swirling designs such as sun-like shapes in green and sunflower yellow. The sarongs come with matching printed beach shorts. Nubbly, dry-touch knitted cardigans and vests are worn on top, layered with an oversized tailored jacket with sloped shoulders. Long sleeved striped knits are in relaxed fits, some with deep V necks.
Flared leg denim jeans come in patchwork, or with appliquéd denim marijuana leaves, or tie-dyed in blue-and-white. These are worn with a denim motorcycle jacket printed with tattoo designs, or a Honda leather biker jacket with a red patch and a band of green-and-white stripes on the sleeves. Mini denim shorts and jeans are embellished with metal eyelets.
Earth tones are found in the check pants, knits and jackets, while the trio of colours of the Jamaican flag: yellow, black and green – plus red trim, a crochet beach tote, a crochet beanie or can be seen in a crochet patch on the leg of a jean. Pastel looks are blended into his wardrobe, by way of 80s style prom jackets in mint and baby blue and edged matte suede jackets, maxi shorts printed with a hibiscus flower, or oversized, long board shorts that have pants proportions.
Easy to sling over, deep acid coloured cross body bags in mini sizes are where this surfer carries his essentials. Other bags include a printed gummy-touch sack that rolls from the top to close, printed rectangular shaped totes with long buckled shoulder straps, or with an image of Bob Marley Foundation, with a quote of his on the reverse. On the surfers’ feet, flip flops are swapped for tech sandals, leather sandals, white boot shoes and biker mode boots.
