A major name in Italian fashion, DSquared clothing holds the motto “Born in Canada, Living in London, Made in Italy” which embodies the brand’s history and ethos perfectly. Founded by Canadian identical twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten, the brand’s collections display a wealth of influences from across the globe.
The Caten brothers founded the brand in 1995 and, thanks to the luxurious construction and larger-than-life attitude of the clothes, quickly became a favourite among celebrities. The brothers utilised this relationship to their advantage, working closely with stars like Madonna and Rihanna on collections for the artists’ tours, as well as enlisting them to walk the runway for spectacular shows.
This penchant for spectacle translates to the clothing, with heavily distressed and embellished detailing appearing as a signature throughout the brand’s collections, along with nods to the Caten brothers’ home of Canada with a maple leaf and rugged outdoor motifs. DSquared jeans, in particular, are popular for their outlandish styling and exceptional quality.
Uniquely, the brand has extended this collaborative stance to outfitting football teams, starting with Juventus in 2006 and more recently with Manchester City. These partnerships showed a more subdued, sophisticated side to the brand, which has started to cross over into the main DSquared clothing collection, resulting in a well-balanced, wearable range that still boasts the Caten brothers’ unmistakeable graphic sensibility. We are proud to be official stockists of a range of DSquared t-shirts, jeans, and other accessories, welcoming the brand to our list of the world’s finest menswear.
