Instead of doing their typical theatrical staging background, designers Dean and Dan Caten went minimal. Crafting a monolithic wall out of what appeared to be marble and inserting into it a stone staircase. The duo didn't want to give anything away, not even via one of their traditionally playful show notes. Not that you ever really needed them, as each season's theme was usually self-evident as soon as the first model hit the catwalk.
It took just a tad longer than that this time to pick up on the fall/winter 2015 season's Far West cavalry and Indians starting point. Or, seeing as the twins are from Canada, maybe we should say Far North. Although the Native American tattoo body suits were something of a dead giveaway. But even then there was a sense that there was something a bit more substantial going on with this collection.
The navy blue military coats with gilded livery frogging will always find a buyer. So too will the taut vests and cropped jodhpur pants and the fitted denim jeans that finished off with regimental red and gold bands of silk. And the flouncy dresses were sexy and playful takes on vintage sous vêtements. The show's tribal-patterned fur coats (even if they skewed a bit closer to Eskimo than Indian) and colorful ponchos are destined to don the covers of glossy magazines around the globe.
Accessory lovers will have a field day with all the tribal-embellished handbags, furry strappy heels and fur accent pieces.
And by the time the show ended, guests were already sending out modern-day smoke signals (photos posted to Instagram and Twitter) of their favorite DSquarded2 squaw designs.
