DSquared2 Fall 2010 Brings On Men's Street Wear With A Huge Punch

You may already know this talented pair, Dan and Dean Caten, the creative brains and muscle behind DSquared2. They have recently gone mainstream with their features on Bravo's "Launch My Line" this season. That's how I recognized them since I'm such a Bravo junkie.


This season in Milan at the recent Fall 2010 show they must have had Rocky Balboa on their minds, since all the pretty boy faces where bloody and looked like they just came out of a street fight. Their inspiration actually was slasher films, hockey and skinheads.



Ok, so you might have to look past the bloody faces a bit. What I find it so refreshing to see a runway show that feature clothes that men would ACTUALLY wear as a complete outfit. And, some of us wish more men would! The designers create clothes for themselves and say they aren't trying to reinvent the wheel. They just want the wheel to roll better.
I miss the days when men wore nice black shoes, great jeans, a white v-neck t-shirt and a nice black jacket to hit the town.
Maybe DSquared2 will bring back men dressing up a bit?



White jeans in fall for a man... no. But I like the look of a great quality men's athletic sweater with a pair of jeans and nice shoes (like Doc Martins).
This is my pick for Ben Affleck.



Love the Parisian inspired scarf and vest with ripped jeans
and that amazing wool tailored jacket. Done.
This would be my pick for Brad Pitt.



Even your rocker man can look fabulous in black leather without
looking like a little punk.
Bono from U2 would rock this outfit with his signature shades, of course.



This would be my favorite for a man like Johnny Depp to go out in rocker style on the town. Dressed up a bit, but not trying too hard. And, it looks darn comfortable.






Here's is last fall's old school hollywood type inspired fashion show that is seriously worth a few moments to see what is possible for your man or the man of your dreams.

What do you think of this collection?
Packing a big punch or needing a few more rounds in the drawing room?

Definiteily wouldn't mind more men wearing this! (ok, minus the face paint). Although... is that last coat sequined? If so, I'd skip that 4th look. Coat + vest + scarf = perfection!

Looks fantastic! I love the fact that they added "bit up" look via make-up.:-) Wishing you wonderful weekend and sending million kind wishes your way. :-)
