I’ve been in jail and the clothes do not look this fabulous.
I just don’t think prison references are cute. Not in a country where stop and frisk is a real thing.
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.
Yeah, I couldn’t decide if this was patronizing/insulting/clueless.
Why choose? I’d say all three fit.
I’d go with dumb, personally.
“Provocative.” This is fashion week.
Stupid, but no one has ever confused fashion with political correctness.
That jumped out at me too. gross.
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?
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.
Good thing this show took place in Milan, then!
Agreed. Prison is….not cool.
Same here. My more cutesy version is that it rings awfully close to Derelicte.
Yuck, I hate this. So much.
North Sea Hijack chic.
I was kind of thinking along the same lines… Newfoundland Fish Hatchery “Executive” Chic
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…
Is that a rubber jacket?
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.
How do those twins get away with this stuff?
Play the gay twin card? I really have no idea.
The enormous bags being hauled by male models always make me laugh.
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.
I like the collection but not the pieces with prison references on them.
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!
hot… in a shawshank redemption sorta way.
or is it a man in makeup?
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.
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.
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.
Hate the prison chic.
Well, they’ll all be set in the event of a flood.
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.
I had no idea how much I hated makeup on model thugs till now.
Where’s Waldo? In a lumberjack prison, apparently.
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.
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
cheekbones and coat porn
Gorgeous red coat. Hideous droopy crotch and high water pants. Despicable prison references.
I actually like most of the coats. But I hate the acid-washed denim and the penitentiary-themed stuff.
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.
Ugh. Weird proportions, horrifying Texas Tuxedos, and glamorizing prison. No thanks. (I did like a few of the topcoats, though).
I thought they were Canadian Tuxedos LOL
I’ve heard both! I definitely had to make a hard decision while I was composing my comment.
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?
So after all this snow we’re going to have a big flood?
So it’s a fisherman/inmate/magazine editor/bowling league kind of vibe, with a lot of rouge and lipstick? All right.
Step away from the contour powder…it really should have been confiscated.
So, Mad Men influenced fashion, as did Game of Thrones. Is ONITNB to blame for this?
Very Gorton’s Fisherman goes to the state pen.
“Mer-MAN, Dad!” ::tiny little coughs:: “I’m a mer-MAN!”
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.
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!
I just keep seeing “Nazi Skinhead,” ugh.
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!
Someone needs to tell them not to take Orange Is the New Black literally.
Apart from the glasses (can never resist a cool frame), I don’t understand this. Any of it.
Last photo looks like Tweedledum on his way to a job interview.
That’s pretty offensive.
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.
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.
Um.. #11- so does the fly go up his crack? Or was he on crack to put his pants on backwards…
YUCK. Joel Kinnaman, is that you?!
How did they make all their ears look elfish? Elvish? Elfish? THEY LOOK LIKE ELVES!!!!
LOVE the red coat. Delicious.
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.
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?
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.
Insane clown crotches are now the current style. Somebody help me to my fainting couch.
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.
The longer red coat and the leather/rubber one are mine you bitches….as for the rest of the collection…oh PUHLEEZ!
To be worn by a duche near you.
I actually LIKE the coats and the jackets in this collection. But the whole “prison chic” theme is just a WORLD of no.
SO sick of dopey droopy pants. I think Bieber will be all over this. Some of the jackets are really nice though.
some really great pieces here. Beautiful leathers, and wool coats all with a great utilitarian vibe. Bravo, Gentlemen !
