You’ve never had sex like Dsquared2’s SS25 show

You’ve never had sex like Dsquared2’s SS25 show

Ever seen Magic Mike? Well, that was pretty much the plot of Dsquared2’s SS25 show last night, a sexed up co-ed collection that literally left us sweating. Twin designers Dean and Dan Caten are known for their bold, brash, and often bondage-inspired collections, with dirt splattered looks walking the runway at FW24 (as well as Dean in drag), and its SS25 show, #D2HEAT was no exception. Here’s everything that went down.

Last night, celebs and sex symbols arrived at Milan’s historic 19th century opera house, Teatro Lirico for #D2HEAT. Before the show, we caught up with our girl Mia Khalifa who was hosting the Dsquared2’s photowall, as the buzz of arrivals began to build. After exploring backstage and catching up with Dean and Dan ahead of the show, we finally took a velour-lined seat, anticipating a characteristically hot collection from the design duo… and hot was exactly what we got.

What we didn’t expect was for the show to open with a performance from a group of scantily clad male dancers, who were dropped slowly from the ceiling in clear boxes before breaking out into a routine choreographed to Usher’s “Good Kisser”. After the dancers’ Magic Mike-style performance had set the mood, the real show finally began. The temperature seemed to heighten as the first of #D2HEAT’s 43 looks appeared on the runway, an asymmetric, cream chiffon gown revealing bondage-style black underwear beneath it.

This theme of contrast quickly became a main character of the collection, which paired leather and chiffon, latex and lace, soft and hard, and hot and hotter. References to “fringe fashion subcultures” appeared in the form of latex trucker jackets, starry cowboy-style denim jeans, leopard-print wrestling leotards, and football-style tees worn beneath blue underwear, where classic masculine tropes were transformed with a sensual Dsquared2 edge. 

The sexualisation of hyper-masculinity is a trend Dsquared2 has become known for, and at SS25 it was seen in every look. As always, Dan and Dean know how to turn up the heat, and #D2HEAT left us hotter than hell. We’d like to say they’re bringing sexy back, but at Dsquared2 it never left.
