    • RussellH88

      It’s all pretty standard, right? This could be any 80′s inspired collection. There’s nothing particularly unique or interesting about it.

      • Alfred Cox

        Agreed.

      • Wink

        I swear I heard Wham singing “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” as I scrolled.

        • http://attiresmind.blogspot.com/ Kiltdntiltd

          Its simmering in a stew of 80s pop.

          • Wink

            Thanks, but I’ll pass.

      • Kent Roby

        Yeah, not seeing any sort of fresh take here; just some classic (and wearable) pieces with a couple of bright prints thrown in.

      • Sarah

        It is unique when kittehs have two nipples instead of eight?

        • RussellH88

          I kinda wish it just went to 80′s Tacky territory and had tassels hanging from the kitty titties.

          • Sarah

            Soooo….there’s something about this that ISN’T Tacky? ;)

            • RussellH88

              I’m a person of extremes. If something is going to be tacky, I want it to be over-the-top tacky.

        • Kitten Mittons

          I’d wear that sweater, missing nipples or no.

      • Patricia Groves Dobrowski

        Sweet baby Jesus, they actually put “80′s pop art” on the vanity prints. Subtle.

      • AnaRoW

        That’s okay with me. Whenever designers decide to go “unique or interesting” with men’s clothing we end up with mesh bodysuits and diapers.

    • RescueMe23

      I can’t. I do enjoy the photo of the pink suit though..

      • Sarah

        Those are some seriously two-toned legs. Farmer Tan Alert.

        • Chuck Barthelme

          Seems odd they didn’t even out the tone with some spray. Maybe he was a stand-in for the original model or something.

        • throwslikeagirl

          I think it’s the lighting.

    • Anna

      For Pharrell mostly.

      I love the cat sweatshirt.

      • evave2

        Oh I CAN see Pharrell in this. Thank you, Anna. I would buy the cat sweatshirt for myself.
        For once I think the sandals and boater or whatever you call those shoes are suitable. I can see most of this stuff on yachts or at harbors.
        It’s actually the best D2 collection I have seen, usually most of their stuff is so OUT there I can’t find anything to like at all. But here, I don’t know these people but I think there ARE people who would wear it. No shoe snark.

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      I like about 3 pieces in this collection, and no, one of them is NOT the tiny pink speedo.

      • barbarienne

        I swear when I was scrolling I had a moment of “Wait, is he naked?”

        I am amused by his tan lines at midthigh. “I thought I would be wearing Jams!”

        • Bad Idea Jeans

          The guy in the photo above him looks like he wanted to be wearing the naked speedo. He’s trying to turn neon green parachute pants into a “hey, you can almost see my junk” experience.

          • barbarienne

            Now I’m inventing a scenario in which neon green pants guy is extremely shy about showing his ankles, but okay with everything else, so he pulled his pants waaaay low.

            • Kent Roby

              There was an episode of “Love, American Style” where a woman always wore gloves, even when having sex; she wouldn’t expose her hands to her boyfriend until they got married!

      • evave2

        My showstopper was the guy in the black trunks with the pink boaters (?if I am wrong about what the shoes are called please tell me) he is yummy. But I do agree with Bad Idea Jeans that the guy in the neon green parachute pants is wearing his stuff a little too low on the hips.

    • Kent Roby

      The twins have been out-crazied by other designers (Jeremy Scott, Donatella, etc.); they must be DYING.

      • ballerinawithagun

        I know! You expect craziness from these 2 but who thought somewhat sane designers would be absconding with their look???

      • Thomas

        Actually, usually I expect glorified Abercrombie & Fitch from them. While nothing revolutionary, I actually found this collection a pleasant surprise.

    • http://attiresmind.blogspot.com/ Kiltdntiltd

      Because well, hot pink leather shorts are so going to be a thing, right?

      • sugarkane105

        Instead of “stank boot,” we’ll have “stank balls.”

        • Sarah

          You don’t need leather shorts for stank balls!

          • sugarkane105

            But just think how much Gold Bond Powder’s stock will rise!

      • Kent Roby

        I hope you’re wearing a hot pink leather kilt while writing that. One of my kilts is made of a neon camo fabric that looks fairly similar to the fabric in this collection.

        • http://attiresmind.blogspot.com/ Kiltdntiltd

          I actually have a hot pink kilt, which comes out once a year for Pride Sunday. But its cotton, and I made it m’self. And Heh LOW fellow kiltie!

          • Kent Roby

            That sounds fun! I just have three (the bright camo, black, and olive), but I plan to make a couple of fun ones now that I’m taking a bit of a break from designing/making so many Mardi Gras bal costumes.

            • http://attiresmind.blogspot.com/ Kiltdntiltd

              And you’re a costumer too? How is it I didn’t know that already! Totally cool.

            • Kent Roby

              Costuming is a creative outlet for me that occasionally gets way out of control; I started by making Halloween costumes, then a few pageant gowns (my Miss Teen Mississippi won “Best Gown” at nationals, lol), did costumes for a few local plays, then eventually got to the point where I was spending every spare minute year-round the past dozen years designing/fabricating ball costumes with giant headpieces/backpieces. This past year I simplified/downsized, got rid of 5 of my sewing machines, just doing random fun projects now!

            • http://attiresmind.blogspot.com/ Kiltdntiltd

              I completely understand. I had a thriving costume business on the side which consumed enormous amounts of time. I do the occasional thing now, but my attiresmind blog takes most of my extra energy these days.

            • EveEve

              KR, have you considered trying out for next season’s Project Runway? You already have more design experience than 95% of the contestants.

            • Kent Roby

              I used to have recurring dreams about being on the show, but I’m sure that I would suffer the fate of being labelled “too costumey” ala Chris March if I magically somehow made it there. I did try to talk Roy/Bianca into being on it a few years ago, but I can’t imagine him now taking a break from the momentum of Drag Race.

            • formerlyAnon

              Yeah, you sound like you’d be early cannon fodder. Able to produce garments and unwilling to produce unnecessary drama. One of those early aufs where we’re all saying “but there were at least 4 garments waaaaay worse than his!”

        • kimmeister

          Neon camo . . . for when you want to blend in with the fluorescent background. I suppose that would work, in certain spheres!

          • Kent Roby

            When someone wears something like that (neon camo), I’m the asshole who says “That’s weird; I can still see you!”

      • EveEve

        Hot pink seems to be this season’s color for mens wear. At least I won’t lose my guy in the crowd at the casino.

    • smayper

      Please no to the neon camouflage. Make it stop. Also, the speedo? Imagine the designer trying to defend that, “It’s a DESIGN. No, it’s NOT just an excuse to make the audience pay attention by showing a gorgeous near-naked man. REALLY. I’m SERIOUS! It’s all about the VISION.”

      • Kent Roby

        The speedo says “DSQUARED2″ on the ass, not that it makes it any better.

        • EveEve

          Because I have decided that the D stands for Douche, it makes it way better.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Why would they need to defend a standard men’s bathing suit in a spring collection?

      • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

        Speedos are perfectly common bathing suits outside America.

        • EveEve

          Not with the drawstring though. The drawstring makes it high fashion. And that young man certainly looks like he needs me to show him how to properly tie that drawstring. And by “show him” I mean demonstrate the technique repeatedly in agonizingly slow motion while he has it on.

    • sugarkane105

      You had me at “cat sweater.”
      But seriously, the bright camo? No.

    • ashtangajunkie

      The cat sweater makes me think of my friend’s 5 year old girl, who cries if she has to wear a shirt without a cat on it.

    • jonnyf8

      Well I probably can’t wear any of it but I’m sure glad someone can. Especially those pink leather shorts!!! Thanks twins!!!

    • MilaXX

      I was prepared to dislike this based on that teaser pic, but I don’t. In fact I really like this collection. I could see a lot of real world non twink sized guys wearing a lot of this. I even like the foot wear.

      • mjude

        I too am liking the collection.

      • sugarkane105

        I was surprised to like a lot of it too, and I usually have a low tolerance for crazy. That tan trench on the Clark Kent lookalike is beautiful.

      • TinyDynamo

        Agreed! There are definitely a number of over the top pieces, but overall I thought this would translate really well to real world wearing.

      • Lower L

        It definitely benefits from comparisons to the batshit menswear collections we’ve seen recently.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I was fine till the neon camo. CAMO IS NOT FOR FASHION. There. I said it.

      • MilaXX

        True, but the neon camo swim trunks are fine.

        • sugarkane105

          Remove the bucket hat, and I’m on board too.

        • Jessica Freeman

          Being from the south….the level of infatuation for camo on EVERYTHING….I can hardly stand to look at it anymore.

          My preference on the swim trunks are the tiny pink speedos.

          • Kent Roby

            I went to Mississippi to see my dad/family for Father’s Day weekend; when I was leaving to come back to New Orleans I overheard a girl at a gas station gushing about another girl’s Duck Dynasty t-shirt, she said it was the cutest thing she’d ever seen, and that it’s the only Duck Dynasty t-shirt that she doesn’t already own. I literally cheer every time I cross the state line leaving Mississippi.

            • Lower L

              Now I’m having rural-Texas-gas-station flashbacks.

            • MartyBellerMask

              Similar experience in Arkansas last week…

          • evave2

            Doesn’t the model look like he’s trying to WILL those tiny pink speedos to stay on though?

        • Kent Roby

          I was about to reply the same; that’s the only garment I like in that fabric.

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        Camo has been a part of fashion for decades. It’s no different from any other military-inspired style trend, from sailor suits to brass buttons.

    • NMMagpie

      Can’t hate on men wearing cats. However, the rest of the collection just looks phoned in, particularly those DSquared jackets and pants.

      And that is definitely the worst camo color combination I have ever seen.

    • BlairBear

      A good amount of this kind of works for me. There are some pretty covetable clothes in amongst the crazy

    • Frank_821

      I saw the cat top and thought of Lorenzo. we’re still waiting to see him in his

    • sienna elm

      Can anyone make out what the print is on the yellow jacket and pants? It kind of looks like a horse and rider, but I figure that’s too close to Polo. It could be a squid, or something spacey. I’m intrigued. On the whole there’s a lot that’s workable here.

      • Tami from Seattle

        I was thinking octopus or spider.

      • MilaXX

        It looks looks the same gremlin on the tshirt in thumbnail on the lower left.

    • Gatto Nero

      The jackets and coat in photos 5 through 9 are great. The rest is mostly dreck.

    • Beardslee

      Not, on the whole, clothes for grownups. And again with the weird crotch. Love the tan coat, though, and some of the jackets.

    • Danielle

      Lorenzo, be honest. How many of those cat sweaters did you buy?

      • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

        ROFL You know I want them all : ) XOXO L

    • Lori

      Shit! Is there a quiz today? OMG, give me your notes. I didn’t study. I’m going to fail. If I fail I’ll never get into my first choice school.

      Oh wait, it’s not actually the 80s. Whew, that’s a relief.

      Now that I’m back to my cranky old lady self I’m gonna say, wearing a jean jacket that someone else “distressed” for you is even more of a douchebag thing than overly distressed jeans. (Says the person who somewhere still has her collection of those little pins.) Aside from that, there are actually some good pieces in this collection. The total effect is kind of too much, but if you break it up you could get some good looks.

      • Patricia Groves Dobrowski

        Saw that jacket and found myself wishing I had saved mine, as long as they’re back. I had stuff I sewed on the back and everything. It wouldn’t fit me anymore, but still.

        • Lori

          I still have mine in storage. I will almost certainly never wear it again, and I don’t hang onto a lot of “stuff”, but I couldn’t bring myself part with it.

          • Patricia Groves Dobrowski

            I hung on to mine forever, then finally decided to save the stuff I sewed on the back, and pitch the rest. Once I finally brought myself to take shears to denim, there was no going back.

      • prettyinmink

        The jacket is long gone but I still have all of my pins too! Is it me or does the distressing look like bird droppings on that denim jacket?

        • Lori

          Not just you.

    • Capt. Renault

      Stop it with the fake glasses. Just stop.

    • BlairBear

      The trench and the cropped jacket after it can get into my closet. Please and thanks

      • JauntyJohn

        I know, right? I didn’t “see” them on my first scroll through.
        Really sharp.

        • BlairBear

          I have an outerwear obsession. Thankfully I love in a cool area

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Wow, puff paint has returned! (at least those cats look like they’re made of puff paint). Time to get the Lisa Frank stuff and the bedazzler out of storage!

    • Shawn EH

      Toddlers in leather.

    • therealkuri

      That cat sweater is awesome. Like the adult version of the embarrassing intarsia sweater you used to get from your grandma as a teenage boy.

    • another_laura

      I have nothing new except – terrycloth shorts? yuck.

    • kategs

      I can NOT with the camo and neon? blurg. That white sweater with the black cat needs to be in my closet stat.

    • Mrs. Julien

      I scroll through these hoping for Maximiliano Patane. I am disappointed. The guy in the pink swimsuit helps though.

      • MartyBellerMask

        Is he in any of the other collections posted recently? I haven’t checked yet.

        • Mrs. Julien

          Tragically, no.

    • boweryboy

      Nay.

      It starts off strong. I love the perfectly proportioned black ankle grazer pants with slip on shoes (which is pretty much my go to summer time look) and the blue jackets I must have in my closet right now. And Yay for gorgeous models of color.

      Then it gets all wonky with curious nods to Warhol and Stephen Sprouse, hideous day-glo everything, and platform sneakers. What the hell?

      • Gatto Nero

        Yes. The black pants and the blue jackets and a few other pieces of outerwear that follow them are great. Then — WTH?

    • conniemd

      Love both cat sweaters. But I don’t think a lot of men want to walk around with DSquared on their ass.

    • Glam Dixie

      Even though I don’t know ‘this man’ at least I can imagine him existing out there in the world somewhere unlike with the other spring menswear collections.

    • marlie

      Who would have thought that the Dsquared2 collection would be one of the less cracktastic menswear collections this season? Which is not to say that I LIKE this collection, but there are actually some decent pieces, and it’s not 100% WTFery.

    • Sam Smith

      Yay for kitties on boys.

    • Imasewsure

      I don’t like the neon stuff here (esp. the camo) but I really heart a lot of this. It’s silly but it works for me much more than any of the other wacky men’s collections we’ve seen lately.

    • http://about.me/amandanudelman Amanda Nudelman

      I would make sweet, sweet love to any man in that cat sweater. On the spot.

    • JauntyJohn

      There is a lot here I like. Not a lot I can get away with wearing, but a lot I like.
      The Candy Land Camo is really fun (and usually I’m a little bored by camouflage). The bold colors won’t flatter everyone, but those that can pull it off have some excellent pieces to play with (that one motorcycle jacket with the big green central circle is fierce).
      It’s nice to see the pink, in a tone which I think would be comfortable for most “dudes.” (Given that most dudes might already be far outside of budget and comfort to be sporting some of this, but still…)
      Of everything we’ve seen lately in these collections I like this the best.

    • sleepycat

      like the cat pieces but that is about it. Oh and they totally knocked off the graffiti print from LV

      • boweryboy

        …who knocked it off from Stephen Sprouse….or rather Sprouse originally designed the prints for LV in 2001. This entire collection is very Stephen Sprouse inspired. They even knock off his day-glo camoflauge.

        And the cats are inspired by Andy Warhol’s book 25 Cats Named Sam and One Blue Pussy.

        • MartyBellerMask

          Like and like!

        • sleepycat

          Thank you for the style lesson. Also apparently D2 is knocking off knock offs. How original.

    • uprightcitizen

      The pink neoprene walking shorts would be kind of attention-getting, in a cool way. And that khaki trench with the blue bits is covetable. And purely love those bright colored liners in the sandals. But that dirty denim jacket covered with “flair”? Are we all going to have to sing “Let’s Go to the Mall” with Robin Scherbotsky?

    • Lily

      Why, mandals, why?

    • dustinrhodes

      Boy, they sure went through a lot of bronzer for this runway.

      • boweryboy

        Except for pink speedo guy. Either it’s the lighting or they ran out of bronzer halfway up his legs.

    • FibonacciSequins

      I love just about all of this – the silhouettes and proportions and most of the individual pieces. I’m not really into neon but it’s used well here, fun and summery. ICU, Warhol/Sprouse/Haring. They might want to go with a lighter hand on the influences next time.

    • Anique Ashraf

      kittehs and bronzed men. mmhm. friday is early this week.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOctocornNetwork International Model

      Finally, a menswear collection that is fun, filled with sexy mens, and is worth forwarding to my husband.

    • http://www.chifleschips.com Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

      I like the keecats, but that’s it.

    • DaveinAlamitosBeach

      Are those elevator tennis shoes?

    • LeelaST

      Cat prints & neon leather jackets! Otherwise no.

    • Introspective

      is it me or did I miss just about all of what these men were wearing because they were really nice to look at?

    • MartyBellerMask

      Warhol cats! I want!

      • Mr. J.

        Can’t have because I will get them FIRST.

    • crash1212

      Their proportions always seem so wonky to my eye – but – KITTY SHIRTS!

    • MaggieMae

      I’ll take a closer look at those man bags, please. Orange? Green? Yes, bring it here. Gimme.

    • Mothra

      OMG KITTIES!

    • dashwoodstole

      Couldn’t decide whether I liked this or whether it was just better than that D&G shit I was just looking at. Then I saw the bucket hat and I was like NOPE and it got worse from there on in. Kitty jumpers are cute but you can get that in fucking Topman. Neon camouflage is like, definite benchmark for terrible. The beige jacket with primary colour detailing are, however, quite nice.

    • colorjunky

      clothes 3/10, men 2000/10.

    • demidaemon

      Considering what we’ve seen, this is pretty tame. I admit, I kind of like the stuff with the Picasso cats on it. But the pants are all a bit short, no?

    • KT

      I like the glasses and the cat shirts…. and that is all. Oh, and the abs.

    • Trickytrisha

      Cats, hunks, color. What’s not to like? Well, maybe semi-hideous sandals? The poor kid in the tiny pink bikini bottom whose tanning sprayer seemed to have malfunctioned half way up his legs, having wasted most of the goop on his knees?

    • quiltrx

      I like the outerwear and the bags. Oh, and the Sausage.

    • Melmmmendes

      Omg the tan lines on the second to last guy. Also, he is actually a Ken doll, right?

    • PumpkintheCat

      As already stated far more eloquently by other BKs… Kitties!!! Abs!!! And some of the fugliest mandals I’ve ever seen.

    • jjfg

      I think I love DSquared2 just THAT much today!

    • Kelly

      Jim Cutler glasses FTW! Speedo Boy’s leg tan is a hoot. And abs schmabs; it’s all about the chiseled jawbones for me. Oh, yeah, and (afterthought), the clothes are pretty fun.

    • formerlyAnon

      There’s nothing here I’d be lobbying for a male relative/friend/other to wear, but there’s a lot I can see guys I know buying for themselves (given the budget.) The only thing that stands out for me is the cat sweater. Like the brighter colors, whether that’s good or bad is just personal preference.

    • Laura Schwartz

      My 10-year-old daughter thinks these are the GREATEST CLOTHES EVER, and I don’t mean this as a compliment.

      Are those actual Andy Warhol bedazzled cat illustrations, or fake Andy Warhol-esque bedazzled cat illustrations? If the former, I have to like it on principal, if the latter, I have to dislike it on principal, and also bc it’s stupid. And the graffiti on neon — Stephen Sprouse c. 1987, like, total ripoff! I do like the trench with the little blue postits, and the fit of the chino-type pants. Lot of Runway-only stuff.
