A look at the best from the spring/summer 2015 men’s presentations in Milan this fashion week. A lot of neutrals, blues and greens, plus splashes of red, pink and both neon and pale hues.
Closing out the men’s fashion shows in Milan on Tuesday, DSquared2 designers Dean and Dan Caten most likely took inspiration from Chicago‘s ”Cell Block Tango” and “Orange Is The New Black” as they transformed the catwalk into “Caten’s Penitentary”. Putting on a memorable show, the autumn/winter 2014 presentation began with a spotlight following a model dragged off in a straitjacket to the holding cells, where we see some of the prison-chic models.
The fall collection features bomber jackets, relaxed denim, worker boots, padded orange vests, leather jackets, and even a straightjacket-styled denim jacket.

Treat yourself to some new swimwear for those upcoming lazy, hazy, crazy final weeks of summer!
Make a splash with beautiful and playful printed swim trunks and briefs from the local designer brands like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Parke & Ronen, Charlie By Matthew Zink, and Mr. Turk, to international swimmers from Venory Sydney, Dsquared2, Vilebrequin and Dan Ward.
On Milan Fashion Week’s final day, Dsquared2 presented their collection in a man made tropical paradise filled with lush forestry and a waterfall. Dean and Dan Caten, the gay twin brother designers behind Dsquared2, dub the setting #Shangrila, and the story for the presentation is described as:
“Returning war heroes with that innocence of youthful rebellion, reminiscent of 1950’s boy stars, have taken a wrong turn, disappear from radars and now find themselves in an island paradise: golden sands, a dazzling sun, a lush tropical forest make the perfect backdrop for all Earthly Delights. There’s the scent of a tropical adventure, an exciting mix of amplified characters, the contradiction of tribal and formal, the necessity to improvise, and the raw physicality of sweltering hot men on a mission.”
‘Earthly Delights’ indeed, as a hunk dressed only in tribal necklaces and a pair of white briefs (from the brand’s new, upcoming underwear line) kicks off the show as a light shines on him bathing in the waterfall. He steps out, and two matching and lounging male models nearby are revealed also in their underwear. They hand the first model a towel to dry off and one of their geek chic glasses, and he sets out onto the runway.
