SPRING SUMMER 2018 SHOW COLLECTION
#D2GETHER Louche and loose, the guys and dolls of next summer have a penchant for leather, 50s silhouettes and making trouble on summer vacay. Hair gelled back and dressed in black with jaunty leather caps, neck scarves and pointy winkle picker boots loaded with Western buckles, their goth style gets a sunny injection when they roll into Hawaii. Their signature bad boy and girl looks garner new layers picked up from the tropical surrounds. Biker leather pants and calf hair leopard-spotted jackets are mixed up with Hawaiian prints on shorts, shirts and denim jackets. Slick black 50s pieces are contrasted with denim and pastel in their holiday wardrobe. An oversized leather cardigan is worn on top of a bonded double-face leather polo with stripes, gossamer fine tulle sleeveless T-shirts are trimmed with ruffles. A satin bomber jacket shimmers, from its colorful floral design defined in tonal sequins – the sleeves profiled in a row of the same Western buckles on the boots. Sweatshirts feature soft leather sleeves. The K-Way and Dsquared2 collaboration continues with waterproof covered K-Way denim shorts constructed with side zips. A series of pastel shade 50s style prom tuxedos feature ruffles on the shirt and coordinating bow ties and lapels. A bad scout theme is woven into the looks courtesy of cotton drill shirts appliquéd with special badges for wayward adventurers-–one is for pitching a tent on mountain top, the other, hard liquor drinking games. Accessories for camping in the great outdoors, include a frypan and metal cup are tethered to an oversized patch-decorated backpack. Dsquared2’s cropped narrow pant silhouette is mixed with a feminine retro shape for the women’s lineup. Hawaiian prints appear on soft leather pants, jackets and miniskirts, worn with slouchy biker jacket in leopard print calf hair. Short and flirty full tulle skirts and dresses are layered with K-Way hooded jackets covered in transparent plastic. The Western style buckles from the men’s boots trim a zip-up bodice dress, appear in rows on jackets and sweatshirts and at the top of a hybrid bootie that melds a bukled goth boot with a flip flop. Floaty long tulle skirts are swathed in ruffles. Multi-dimensional flowers are attached to black ribbons for chokers and bracelets.
