Rebellion, One Love, Jamaican surf culture, freedom, and Bob Marley are layered with perfection by the Catan brothers in their DSquared2 Spring Summer 2023 collection. Gorgeous low-riding sarongs compliment soft-shouldered, slouchy jackets matching the ease of apres-swim to masculine suiting. Colorful patterns played off patchwork and knits, tangled amid prints of the reggae legend Bob Marley. A collaboration with the Bob Marley Foundation anchors the collection, as does their study of Jamaican surf culture of the 1970s.
The designers cite the vibe of “Peace, Love and the Joy of Music” from the extraordinary era of Bob Marley for their inspiration. The Rasta-Reggie vibe is the perfect accompaniment to the designer’s monumental alchemy in their patchwork layering in which the whole becomes more than the parts. With looks to love in this collection, there are ‘parts’ that will add verve to any look. Patched and piece-worked masculine biker jackets created in a collab with Honda add another dimension to this collection. One Love! Dsquared2.
