Q&A with twin founders of the fashion house Dsquared2

Designer Spotlight

Fashion & Lifestyle

November 2017

Dsquared2's Caten brothers, Dean and Dan, have recently opened a boutique at Bicester Village. We chat to the dynamic duo about fashion, style and how they stay looking so young and fresh, despite their international, jet-setting lifestyle.

How would you describe the style of the Dsquared2 customer?  

Definitely rock and glam. Dsquared2 customers are generally people who are not afraid to dare. We consider them self-confident and with a strong personality. Always comfortable in every circumstance, they love looking impeccable and wear things differently, mixing and matching what they have in their wardrobe.

You both travel a lot, so do you have any top tips for travelling? Any must-pack items that you would never leave home without?  

Actually, it depends on the trip! Apart from the obvious phone, the things we both just can’t travel without are sunglasses and earphones. We both always have a spare pair of each in our bags just in case! And neither of us is ever without a pair of jeans, a white shirt and a classic jacket.

You both look absolutely amazing! What’s your secret to looking so young and fresh?  

Thank you! Well, we’re positive people and we’re passionate too. We try not to take things too seriously if it’s not necessary. We’re always smiling and we enjoy every day of our lives. We are so grateful for everything, so maybe this has a good effect on how we look.  

You’re known to love the party scene. As party season approaches, can you tell us what trends we should be looking to showcase on the dance floor?  

We love to have fun, particularly with our friends and family. We love pop or disco music. We can’t suggest new music trends, but we generally think that when the sounds get the best rhythm from you and give you energy it means they’re working, so they’ll be hits.  

Other than launching your fabulous boutique at Bicester Village, do you have any exciting collaborations on the horizon?  

We never stop! We have many other new opportunities!

re there any top picks that we should look out for from your collection at Bicester Village?  

First, the Village is amazing: really charming. We encourage people to visit it. And while you’re there we recommend that you have a look at our accessories collection. We think you’ll really like it.  

What do you love most about London?  And do ever spend time away from the city to enjoy the countryside?  

London is inspiring and dynamic and has many sides to it. We both love its lifestyle and admire its creativity. London is full of arts, great architecture and entertainment. Whatever you want to do, you can do it. We spend a lot of our time in the city but we always love to have a rest in the countryside.

Be passionate and work hard but take it easy and always smile.

 

You design for lots of celebrities. Where do you start in the creative process when working with well-known personalities?  

We always try to find the right feeling with celebrities. We try to customise their clothes, combining our style with their personalities. We study them and we try to value their strengths. They have to look amazing but be comfortable with their looks.  

And finally, do you have a motto that you like to live by that you can share with us?

Be passionate and work hard but take it easy and always smile. That’s our best advice for everyone!
