Dsquared2, Dwyane Wade Hope For A Fashion Slam Dunk With New Men’s Collaboration

by MR Magazine Staff

Dsquared2, the edgy fashion brand founded by Canadian twins Dean and Dan Caten, will soon unveil a nine-piece capsule collection created with NBA star Dwyane Wade, who first popped into a Dsquared2 runway show a few years ago. “He’s very fashionable for an athlete,” said Dan, calling from Italy recently (the brothers split their time between Milan and London). However, don’t expect to find oversized basketball jerseys in this capsule, which bows in early April exclusively at four Saks Fifth Avenue stores, including the retailer’s Beverly Hills location, and on saksfifthavenue.com. “More and more athletes, particularly those in the NBA, are becoming tremendous style influencers,” said Eric Jennings, vice president and fashion director of Saks Fifth Avenue. (He became aware of Wade’s fashion interests through the basketball star’s stylist.) The looks have the signature Dsquared2 fit. A technical bomber jacket in nylon was designed to be shrugged over a soft denim shirt and tapered jeans, while a fitted tuxedo jacket was embellished with a camo jacquard motif that replicates leather. Prices range from $440 to $2,440. Read more at Los Angeles Times.
