Where the waves roll in, the sunlight shimmers on a wardrobe that’s found its chill beachside. Looks from the Dsquared2 Spring Summer 2023 collection are pared back to light, translucent layers. Encapsulating this laidback attitude is the show opener of a transparent baby blue lace jacket over fade-away check shirt, with a filmy techno tulle printed skirt. Softness is complemented with overlaid pieces: delicate ruffles on leather and draped dresses, see-through bike shorts, vertical painterly stripes on pants. Peekaboo details amp up the collection’s sensuality. Scuba zips on nude sequined mini dresses unzip to reveal a cheeky flash of skin. A leather eyelet lace dress is cut away and placed on top of another sleeveless check printed dress.
Classic summer sportswear has a sexy twist. Printed nylon oversized board shorts are worn with micro bikini tops or re-styled into mini-skirts and paired with ribbed crop tops. Scuba fabric has an iridescent finish that gleams metallic green to purple, styled into a svelte, narrow skirt and a cropped jacket. Transparent PVC jackets and skirts feature white seams, and green python printed leather is cut into a low-waisted skirt with double buckles, and a glossy jacket—paired to contrast with pale blue see-through lace wide leg pants.
Wet look jersey biking tops have a lacquered finish. Dsquared2 denim is presented in a new cut for the season, the Traveller jean has a wide leg and a paint-spotted wash, which is also constructed into a slouchy, oversized boyfriend denim jacket.
Signature beachy style of terry suiting meets the denim world. The same material is in accessories including heeled clog sandals and roomy totes, made for gliding around coastal locales.
Pointy patent pumps with high décolleté lift the look to the peak of the wave, together with tribal earrings and crisply printed patterned D2 shoulder bags or slouchy straw beach bags. Wrap-around unisex sunglasses have iridescent lenses and scuba style neoprene keepers strap on the back of their heads to keep sunglasses in place, ensuring she doesn’t lose them when the swell is up.
