Canadian twin brothers fromWillowdale Ontario,
Dean and Dan Caten have operated in the international
fashion business since 1984. They moved to New York
City on 1983 to attend the Parson’s School of Design
and on 1991 came to Italy where, on 1994, after many
collaborations with the most important fashion houses,
they had their first men’s collection show, marking the
first in a long succession of runway extravaganzas that
were to capture the attention of journalists and buyers for
their perfect combination of fashion, music and theatre.
The intelligent mix of irreverent Canadian wit and
refined Italian tailoring, together with attention to detail
are the foundation of today’s Dsquared2 philosophy,
which has given life to a unique concept of alternative
luxury. Recently, Dsquared2 collections have conquered
a wider audience and, owing to their natural stylistic
maturity, have become more chic and sophisticated
while maintaining those sexy and provocative traits
so embedded in their creative roots. This evolution is
also due to the continuous international inspiration
received by Dean and Dan, who, while dividing their
life and work between Milan and London, create their
collections in Italy: “Born in Canada, living in London,
made in Italy”.
