Born out of a close friendship between Dean and Dan Caten and Zlatan Ibrahimović, the Icon collaboration’s second collection will launch for Fall Winter 2022. Black on Black is designed by Designers and the Champion to embody his individual style and personality.
Embodying its name, the lineup is entirely in black, from eveningwear, to day pieces, sportswear and denim and accessories. Tone-on-tone black motifs define the pieces: printed logos featuring Dsquared2 and the A.C. Milan striker’s nickname Ibra, Zlatan Ibrahimović’s initials embroidered in a cursive style, and denim labels and tapes featuring Dsquared2, Ibra and the collection’s name. Specially designed hangtags for the pieces are printed in block letters.
Eveningwear is a mix of contemporary and classic. The black tuxedo features a blazer, black tuxedo shirt, pleated pants and a slim bowtie and leather lace-ups. Unexpected evening looks are covered in a subtle shimmer of black crystals: jeans, a slouchy fit hoodie and relax fit shorts.
Everyday pieces are cut with modern elegance. A double-breasted felted wool coat, wool biker pants and merino knits are styled with a poplin shirt. Hybrid style outwear is constructed with leather biker sleeves, including a zip closure wool blazer zip and long wool coat. A bomber features Ibra printed on the reverse. T-shirts, black bull jeans and washed jean jacket and Western denim shirt are paired with boots and baseball caps. Sporty separates of hoodies and joggers are in technical or cotton fleece. Pool and beach wear is also covered with a mid-length swimsuit boxer, bathrobe and sandals.
Black on Black will launch in September 2022 in all Dsquared2 stores, website and WW selected retailers.
