Twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten, collectively known as Dsquared2, are quite the phenomenon. Since launching their first ready-to-wear collection in 1995, the Canada-born pair has attracted clients such as Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé and Lenny Kravitz. With everything they touch turning to gold, it’s no surprise Dean and Dan are now launching an eyewear line.
Dsquared2 Eyewear includes a collection of 16 designs for men and women, combining stark contrasts of shape and color to create frames that are unique, yet comfortable. The men’s glasses are made from tear drop shaped metal with touches of gold, while the women’s models are more angular, mixing attitude with glamour.
These stunning designs were developed in collaboration with leading Milan eyewear company the Marcolin group. Of their talented partners, Dean and Dan gush: “They are the most innovative group on the market, able to distinctly diversify the brands of their portfolio and devote all the efforts necessary to support a project as important as this.”
The inspiration for the eyewear comes from ’70s culture, a time of cultural and social upheaval—caught between ’60s euphoria and ’80s decadence—but, ultimately, a time of innovation and realism. Dsquared2 Eyewear will be available May 2009 at department stores across North America.
