The Caten Twins are taking it to the beach, for DSQUARED2 Resort 2023. But this isn’t your typical ‘Surfs-Up’ collection; it’s delivered with a Gothic edge. There’s no blond-haired, blue-eyed beach-bum insight. The designers have tapped the Cool Guy, the Skater, the guy that listens to Punk, the Hot Outsider from High School, you know, the one who would sneak off to smoke under the bleachers.

Big volumes and delicate layers construct the intersection of his world. Rockabilly blazers, and Grunge knitwear are worn with Skater shoes and Punk shorts. Floral motif shirts, and slogan tees are shown with cameo and cargo shorts. It’s a mash-up of layering and sun-bleached essentials. Hews of pink, green, and denim break-up the waves of black, and looks are punctuated with cool accessories. It’s a collection for the guy who gets his adrenalin rush surfing the local point break by day, and then slips into the shadows at night to seek out entertainment.
