Those coats/jackets are KILLA.
Those poor boobs.
Baby heads everywhere!!! Almost felt like a VSecret fashion show from the waist up!
The designers or the models?
Yeah, who knew “Dsquared2″ was code for baby heads festival?
Evening swimwear? Where is one supposed to wear that?
Lady Gaga and these guys should get together. Neither of them cares for pants.
A lot of lady stars are opting out of pants lately. So, I guess someone will wear this.
Seriously, are there rich folks who lounge by pools so long and so often they’d invest in swimwear you can’t swim in? Maybe the suits are just backdrops to prop up the more sellable coats and accessories.
Some of it I don’t think you can even lounge in. Those rigid corset numbers are like lampshades.
A guy I used to work with spent a year in Milan – he said in Italy you go for a swim, change out of that suit into a suit for sitting around in, then change out of that into suit #3 for your next swim (you wouldn’t put on one that was still damp). I don’t know how true it is but it sounds like a lot of work.
That sounds like such a glamorous lifestyle—really the perfect situation for some of these, and just the kind of crowd who could probably afford them.
The irony here, is that the models more closely represent the average sized civilian. (I’m trying to say this in a way that doesn’t break the rules, bare with me.) These models have a voluptuousness to them that is not often seen on the runway. Sometime I can’t envision the real world translations if the clothes are shown on people so varied from my own body. So here, I can appreciate the more realistically common woman shown, but she’s wearing clothes 1% of women would wear outside of a movie set.
Bare with you? Really? (I’m assuming you have a kinky auto-correct thing going)
I totally do. And, apparently, I’m an idiot. You’d never know English is my first language.
Believe me, I teach English for a living, and, for most of my students, you wouldn’t know English is their first language, either. You are way ahead of them, as you know how to properly use a comma. And that’s a lacking skill these days.
I know I make Grammar People crazy, I do. I read very quickly, and I can always understand those stupid scrambled letters, numbers and symbols memes; my brain processes incorrect things as correct. Add to that, I spell phonetically, while having a deep southern accent. I type quickly, I write like I talk, it’s conversational and errors abound. But even when I proof read, I miss things. To love me is to accept my shitty grammar.
I see a bunch of lampshades and mushroom diapers. Even most of the models aren’t pulling off the lampshade hats. The lampshade corset things look like torture for boobies. There are a handful of cute, wearable pieces though.
The Lucy and Ethel collection I guess
Parade of the baby heads.
The evidence is strong that much of fashion is really just high-society trolling.
Yes, Grace Kelly in Florida. Or Gloria Guinness in Mexico.
The reason men should not design bathing suits for women… seriously, this is what they came up with? Ridiculous.
What in the actual fuck am I looking at here? Pageant wear? Costumes? An acid trip blend of Beach Blanket Bingo and Mad Men? An advert for breast augmentation? Color me stumped.
What do you even call those… mini dress corset things?? I’m baffled.
The corset things almost look like they’re made out of paper mache. They’re like a boob-crushing shell.
Robert Best would have done it better.
I want to know what you do for a living, you’re so damn witty. xoxo
I was thinking the crocheted doll dresses. For extra toilet paper rolls. In my grandmother’s bathroom. In the 70′s.
MY EYES! I think the one thing we can all agree on is that every woman wants to look more like Daisy Duck, proportionally speaking.
Mostly heinous. Plus, that lipstick color looks dreadful, except on the women of color, and then it looks merely marginal.
Oh thanks, DSquared2, I haven’t laughed so much in ages. That felt good!
i really want to love this (and i do!) but i’m SO distracted by the baby heads ):
DSquared will always be associated with ANTM for me; therefore, I’m taking all of this with a large grain of salt.
I always think of Launch My Line.
The Helium Twins.
Miley’s next wardrobe.
What is that first look, and the others like it, supposed to be?? A bathing suit? It cannot be a dress, or a shirt!
My question, exactly. Although I’d guess that a lot of them, lengthened into skirts or pants/Capris, would work.
Not sexy enough for Miley. I think Miley actually chooses cuter stuff.
I said this below, but I’ll say it again here: It is, clearly, an upsized toddler’s dress with the diaper peeking out.
So the next new trend for SS14 is….Baby heads?
Also, I thought they showed in Milan. When IS Milan Fashion Week this year?
MFW started today.
My goodness, could they at least give us some breathing room?
I’m having this horrible vision that KimK is going to do a photoshoot in one of these.
Although there is much that is risible (a granny panty suit?), I love the car-coat-and-pedal-pusher vibe and all the accessories.
I love the kooky/glam of some of those hats. Like Grace Kelly by way of Dr. Seuss.
And some of those extreme silhouettes are sleek cartoon fun and really working for me. (The boob squishing? Not so much.) It drifts slightly into Victoria’s Secret territory in a couple of places, but I thought this was a lot of fun, with some pieces which could really rock in the right hands (the red/black/white print dress – again, sans boob squish, and the… fabric feather? dress in the neutrals. Love the volume in the black dress.)
Also: For whatever reason, imho some of these models seem to be really present — connecting right through the camera. Presence! Work!
Fun collection. Love #11, head to toe.
I actually really like most of the “normal” dresses (the black/red/white prints and the black tea-length). Most of those coats are also super FAB, but the rest…. Not so much…..
I *LOVE* this. I’m shocked that I love a Dsquared2 collection, to be honest. The dresses are lovely, and the jackets and coats are beautiful. Even the bathing suits are weird, but pretty. I can’t wait to see Cate or Tilda or Nicole or Naomie in that last dress.
I really like the black&white&red all over dress and the hats are zany-glamorous. Everything else is just meh to me. I’m just happy it wasn’t an entire collection of granny panty clothes (which is where it seemed to be going from the first few looks)
Where they afraid the references would be lost and therefore add those clear plastic frame glasses to really hammer the point home?
The short tops (dresses?) with the exaggerated hips are cute from the front, but somewhat jarring from the rear. Too much bum spillage.
I was scrolling down going “horrible micro-dresses/bathingsuits/whatevers but good accessories”.
And then I saw that black/white/red dress. That is to die for. Gorgeous print, gorgeous shape. That dress is the saving grace of this collection.
Ok a few other individual items, particular jackets, are not bad either, but that dress. *drool*
Yes, those are the few great hits in this collection saddled with a huge number of misses in hydrophobic swimwear.
i kinda like the 40/50′s vibe & few of the jackets & dresses
Ugh! I just want to reach in there and squish all their tits back into place!
The black and white and red dress was great.
The frack are the rest of these things? What is that *hat*
I like that print, and the big LBD is nice, too. If they’d limited their palette to just red, black and white the whole thing would have been much more chic. It’s all very 1959.
I just like the over-drawn coral lips, to be honest. It does make me wonder if they cast models who resemble stars to try to get them to wear the gear. I am seeing Natalie Portman, Malin Akerman and Emilia Clarke.
I’m seeing Brigitte Bardot, Claudia Cardinale and Elke Sommer.
Love the hats and the LBD. Hate everything else. Poor babyheads.
Most of these reminded me of cutout clothes that I put on my cutout paper dolls. (Yes, I’m that old.)
Taylor Swift would look great in all these leggy things.
“For the stewardess on a bender!” I love the glasses. Miss their little fashion show. They were precious as could be.
Aside from a few nice outfits that wandered in from another collection, this looks like it should be titled “a salute to camel toe.”
some of those necklace thingies looked they they had stuffed birds on them.
I’m loving the hats, and that white gown is killa!
The rest is wonky, batshit 1950s on the French Riviera filtered through the eye of Fellini WTFery… and not in a good way.
I think 95% was WTF.
The Mamie Van Doren Collection?
Okay, they’re not serious, are they? Surely they aren’t putting this out as an actual collection?? REALLY? I know I’m dying to wear “clothing” that features my crotch, aren’t you? Then they drop that last dress in, and dammit it’s glorious.
the hats look like wastebaskets.
No, just no
Wow, bitchfaces in unflattering clothes. Titscrepancies and babyheads are overly abundant.
I like the black sweetheart dress and the black/white/red print dress (if the top fit properly). Let’s burn the rest.
I always laugh when I see Resort swimwear with a dry clean only tagger!
And speaking of Barbie! Uhg.
Lampshades for everybody!
I actually dig half the retro looks here; the bathing suits, shorts, jackets, dresses, capris. Fun and classic.
What the hell? ! Make it stop! …except for the last dress. It’s weirdly fascinating.
Bless their hearts, Heidi forced them to design a gown out of dirty shoe inserts.
i think the real d squared are those baby heads poking out.
Lots of really cute things here. AND NO SHEERS!!!!!!!!!…
2 great jackets, very similar to each other (1 white, 1 black, tailored, cropped near waist, 3/4 length sleeves, self buttons) 3-4 potentially good coats. 2 decent dresses. 1 bathing suit? (black, shown with black jacket described above) which might serve as a dress-ish thing for clubbing. Or it’s a very, very short dress.
The rest will inspire less silly versions of the trends, I hope. I see it as very much a riff on ’50s and early ’60s shapes.
Every one of them could pass for a Barbie Doll. No disrespect. I think that was the point!
Serving up 1960′s Miami Beach realness. I swear to god, my mother-in-law has pictures of herself at the Fountainbleau Hotel that would fit right into this collection. But, GIMME that denim two piece! (and the body to wear it)
This looks like either a) a Heidi Klum collection or b) clothes for high fashion babies, upsized. I mean, that first look (other than being visual barf) looks like a bigger version of a toddler’s dress with the diaper peeking out underneath. That is really not good.
What’s with the (aging) Barbie clothes?
This collection is more lady-like that the usual D-Squared collections.
