  • Big Bear

    I’ve been in jail and the clothes do not look this fabulous.

    • MilaXX

      I just don’t think prison references are cute. Not in a country where stop and frisk is a real thing.

      • Megan Kennedy

        Yes. I know some of the other boys are wearing them too and all, but putting a bright orange prison jacket on the only black man in your show is in extremely poor taste.

        • SierraDelta

          Yeah, I couldn’t decide if this was patronizing/insulting/clueless.

          • SugarSnap108

            Why choose? I’d say all three fit.

          • demidaemon

            I’d go with dumb, personally.

          • e jerry powell

            “Provocative.” This is fashion week.

            Stupid, but no one has ever confused fashion with political correctness.

        • Molly

          That jumped out at me too. gross.

      • in a pickle

        If there’s one thing guys in prison don’t have, it’s keys- which the models are all displaying. Are they supposed to be Oompa Loompa guards?

      • Danielle

        I was all set to get fired up about the ridiculous contouring on these guy’s cheeks before I saw the back of orange jacket. Holy moly, that’s deplorable.

      • vickilu

        Good thing this show took place in Milan, then!

      • MaggieMae

        Agreed. Prison is….not cool.

      • Susannah

        Same here. My more cutesy version is that it rings awfully close to Derelicte.

  • Glam Dixie

    Yuck, I hate this. So much.

  • North Sea Hijack chic.

    • Imasewsure

      I was kind of thinking along the same lines… Newfoundland Fish Hatchery “Executive” Chic

    • StellaZafella

      When are designers going to learn how to put hats on male models?…I can’t see anything but Dopey, Dopey, Dopey, Dopey and Doc all in prison wear and too much rouge…and y’all know what too much rouge gets you in prison.

      Rouge is the new black…

  • lalahartma

    Is that a rubber jacket?

  • Lori

    I want that red coat. Other than that this is a whole lotta “no.”

    • Yes, that’s the only keeper. The red color is so rich and luscious.

  • MoHub

    How do those twins get away with this stuff?

    • demidaemon

      Play the gay twin card? I really have no idea.

  • kimmeister

    The enormous bags being hauled by male models always make me laugh.

  • hughman

    Fun fact : I have a fluro-orange jacket exactly like the one in the 4th pic. It was the zip-out liner to a coat I bought from J. Crew around ’90. I bought the coat just for the liner to wear separate.

    Moral of the Story : FU D-Squared. The end.

  • sleepycat


  • MilaXX

    I like the collection but not the pieces with prison references on them.

  • Michele

    I’m sorry I can’t even see the clothes. All I can see is the blush on each of the models’ cheeks. It’s too much!

  • ailujailuj

    hot… in a shawshank redemption sorta way.
    or is it a man in makeup?

  • conniemd

    The pants are hideous, baggy jokes, particularly the low-riding ones. Plus, the orange jacket doesn’t even reach to be zipped across the front.

    • demidaemon

      Yeah, I meant to mention that in my own comment. These are possibly the worst pants I have seen (yes, I am including the Thom Browne ones from this year when making this statement) because these are meant to be normal pants (I think), but they make all the models look loose crotched and short legged. No bueno.

  • Sarah

    If you’re going for utilitarian, then I don’t know what utility only one knee patch is gonna give you. And prison isn’t fashionable.

  • SewingSiren

    Hate the prison chic.

  • TerryMarie

    Well, they’ll all be set in the event of a flood.

  • Inspector_Gidget

    None of them appear too happy with the drag makeup. What’s up with the painted-on sunken cheeks? Is there a hunger strike at the prison?

  • The prison shtick is not cute. On any level.

  • Denise Alden

    I had no idea how much I hated makeup on model thugs till now.

  • Carla_Charlton

    Where’s Waldo? In a lumberjack prison, apparently.

  • Jacob Bowen

    I LOVE the first quilted orange jacket (minus the prison reference) and I LOVE the denim undercoat/pea coat in the 8th picture! I also covet most of the overcoats.

  • Frank_821

    I don’t mind the clothes that much. But these models are all wrong for the collection. It’s not just the blush and makeup. You need MEN who are much mroe rugged and masculine to make it believable. These boys look ridiculous

  • ellatheingenue

    cheekbones and coat porn

  • Trickytrisha

    Gorgeous red coat. Hideous droopy crotch and high water pants. Despicable prison references.

  • marlie

    I actually like most of the coats. But I hate the acid-washed denim and the penitentiary-themed stuff.

  • Anni

    The mid-fly tags in a couple of those pants are making me stare at the models’ crotches. And not in a fun, ogle-y sort of way. Also, denim. And highwaters. And prison. I need a drink.

  • anotherkate

    Ugh. Weird proportions, horrifying Texas Tuxedos, and glamorizing prison. No thanks. (I did like a few of the topcoats, though).

    • quiltrx

      I thought they were Canadian Tuxedos LOL

      • anotherkate

        I’ve heard both! I definitely had to make a hard decision while I was composing my comment.

  • David Calder

    I’m drooling over the cranberry coat, but I agree with the commentariat that the prison garb is gross. Pray tell, will proceeds go toward legal aid for the wrongly convicted?

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    So after all this snow we’re going to have a big flood?

  • SugarSnap108

    So it’s a fisherman/inmate/magazine editor/bowling league kind of vibe, with a lot of rouge and lipstick? All right.

  • YoungSally

    Step away from the contour powder…it really should have been confiscated.

  • @Biting Panda

    So, Mad Men influenced fashion, as did Game of Thrones. Is ONITNB to blame for this?

  • lulukittie

    Very Gorton’s Fisherman goes to the state pen.

  • unpious

    “Mer-MAN, Dad!” ::tiny little coughs:: “I’m a mer-MAN!”

  • demidaemon

    Um, NO. Most of this is borderline hideous (or early 90s inspired, so same thing really), and the pink lipstick on these boys is REALLY distracting. Like, all I can see are your lips distracting. Depending on your POV, this can be a good or a bad thing. As I was trying to look at the clothes, bad at this time. If I was in real life with on of these models in the room, maybe not so bad.

  • quiltrx

    Anyone else go straight to the funeral-home makeup in “Drop Dead Gorgeous”? “Make him look like he just came in from hunting…cap, rosy cheeks…”
    LMAO this is DUMB!

  • Cassidy Olsen

    I just keep seeing “Nazi Skinhead,” ugh.

  • Diego!

    Casual, urban, but gorgeous! This is my new brand! I love the coats and jackets (except the orange ones) but I love most the shoes!!! Dsquared2, here I come! 😀

  • deelup

    Someone needs to tell them not to take Orange Is the New Black literally.

  • Lynsey M.


  • Anna

    Apart from the glasses (can never resist a cool frame), I don’t understand this. Any of it.

  • Donna Luder

    Last photo looks like Tweedledum on his way to a job interview.

  • AmeliaEve

    That’s pretty offensive.

  • KinoEye

    Oh, it’s prison-themed. Delightful. This is so wrong I don’t even know where to start. It’s like Derelicte, except not funny at all, way more tasteless, and incredibly insulting.

  • boweryboy

    Of course. The Caten brothers continue to design clothing only they would wear (or the guys they want to fuck). Although, I must say nearly all the coats and jackets are covet worthy.

  • Solokitty

    Um.. #11- so does the fly go up his crack? Or was he on crack to put his pants on backwards…

  • acevedob

    YUCK. Joel Kinnaman, is that you?!

  • Kerry McCombs

    How did they make all their ears look elfish? Elvish? Elfish? THEY LOOK LIKE ELVES!!!!

  • willworktomorrow

    LOVE the red coat. Delicious.

  • formerlyAnon

    Buying a sweatshirt or god-help-you an orange quilted jacket emblazoned with “Caten’s Penitentiary” in what look like iron-on graphics from Dsquared2 IS the definition of “fashion victim.”

    Honest. I’m pretty sure it’ll be in the next edition of Webster’s and the OED.

  • DaveinAlamitosBeach

    I’m surprised it took this long for high water pants to be featured. After all, if you can show the socks you can sell them and get more revenue. And I also don’t mind the keys in front like that since I would love for that to become fashionable so they don’t have to gouge you in the pockets. I don’t mind the bright orange stuff since I live in a cabin and would find that helpful in not getting shot by hunters. The rouge and the prison stuff is ludicrous but isn’t most fashion that way?

    • boweryboy

      The highwater look has sort of been in for the last two years. I have a pair of jeans and black dress pants I got from Topman about a year and a half ago. They’re called “ankle grazers” – slim fit and slightly tapered when it reaches the highwater part.

      They’re perfect for summer with a pair of Chucks or sandals. I love them. These DSquared pants are bit too voluminous for my taste, but I like the overall silhouette.

  • Qitkat

    Insane clown crotches are now the current style. Somebody help me to my fainting couch.

  • bringbackbeatles

    Inmate chic? That’s different… Call me crazy, but I’m not sure this is who we should be aspiring to look like. Really bizarre collection.

  • Melvis Velour

    The longer red coat and the leather/rubber one are mine you bitches….as for the rest of the collection…oh PUHLEEZ!

  • Jean Beaton Leavitt

    To be worn by a duche near you.

  • Agent Sculder

    I actually LIKE the coats and the jackets in this collection. But the whole “prison chic” theme is just a WORLD of no.

  • Therese Bohn

    SO sick of dopey droopy pants. I think Bieber will be all over this. Some of the jackets are really nice though.

  • John Parot

    some really great pieces here. Beautiful leathers, and wool coats all with a great utilitarian vibe. Bravo, Gentlemen !
