The bohemian travellers of the Fall Winter 2022 collection are on a spiritual path to explore places unseen. After years of staying at home, gazing at the world outside with wanderlust, they travel with intentions of peace and love. They want their global community to live in harmony and they dress with the same attitude.
These voyagers wear layers that offer protection, comfort, and reveal memories of their travels—like souvenirs collaged together. An earthy palette of natural hues, rust, amber, forest green, carmine red and bark brown offset the multi-layer silhouettes and the fabric textures of tech feel gum, lustrous leather to fuzzy mohair.
Hidden stones glimmer in a long tunic tulle skirt of the first look, worn with a striped knit and oversized washed jeans. Outerwear wraps cosily around, gigantic vests and puffers—some cut from soft leather with felted-lined hoods. Sheer nylon pants show their down filling, and puffer nylon boots are made for walking softly over unchartered ground.
A freewheeling spirit gives the collection a rosy glow: cords and velvets in loose pants, paired with printed blouses and hewn-cut stone necklaces. A devoré velvet dress with an ochre floral print is layered with pants and a long apricot shearling vest. Other dresses are cut from graphic print silks or in tulle appliquéd with embroidery and mini pompoms. Kilts in a patchwork of tartans are doubled up with Dsquared2 DNA of denim or a puffer. Jeans and a jacket are constructed with multiple pockets or come over loose, washed until they are ultra-soft and worn over suede soft fringed booties.
Knits in maxi stripes, or graphic patterns top mini leather or long check skirts. Another dress is topped with a high-cropped gum jacket. The line-up is worn with suede moccasins that lace-up to the knees or tech booties and sandals, and clogs for those travellers who have found somewhere relaxing to set their backpack down. Bags also come padded or in shearling, in organic, soft shapes such as a shirred shoulder and a mini duffle that fit snugly under the arm. Jewellery is collected on the way: beaded earrings, metal rings and bracelets featuring silver balls and bells. The adornments make gentle sounds as Dsquared2’s travellers venture out into the world on a mission to connect it together with peace and love.
