Dsquared2 Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2016 Milan
The Dsquared2 twins got the party started right with the DJ playing Chicks on Speed's "Super Surfer Girl" and actress Michelle Rodriguez who played hardcore surfer Eden in the movie "Blue Crush” sitting first row.
And with that, the aggression was palpable – skin tight t-shirts that at first glance looked like fully tattooed skin, dominatrix fetish strappy leather vests matched with karate pants, and killer stilettos adorned with surfboard cords and cowry shells were fit for a surfer girl who isn't afraid to get cut up on the coral reef, if it means catching the perfect wave.
There was also an 80s "Electric Youth" motif tying the whole show together: mini neoprene scuba dresses in various shades, which were patterned with random orb-shaped apertures and were paired with romantic chiffon trails.
That's when Whitney Houston talked some sense into this collection as we heard her "I Wanna Dance with Somebody." Made before Bobby Brown, before drugs, and before her precipitous downfall – when she recorded that song, Houston was the ultimate pop princess and the epitome of African American beauty. And that song really captured the inner spirit of the collection.
When the Dsquared show ended, the models, headlined by Victoria Secret babe Alessandra Ambrosio, were arranged at the top of the runway in a graceful, glittery, Hawaiian jungle array of colors. A mix of futurism, aggression, and vulnerability, Dsquared2 provided the real highlight of MFW's day four.
