Dsquared themed their Spring/Summer 10 collection around camping. Designers Dean and Dan Caten even injected the topic into the set of their show at Milan Fashion Week yesterday (28.09.09), with curtains drawing to reveal a woodland scene with tents and mirrors resting on trees.

The clothes included cut-off shorts, T-shirts and jean jackets teamed with vertiginous platform shoes. In case of bad weather, models were given full-length clear plastic macs with neon trims, worn over eye-popping bikinis.

Caps were also a big look, with a purple evening gown accessorised with the headgear and a bottle of Budweiser beer. Men were also catered for at the show, with the twin designers – who recently designed costumes for Britney Spears’ ‘Circus’ tour, and have previously dressed Justin Timberlake, Madonna and Lenny Kravitz – dressing them in gardening gloves and leggings teamed with walking boots.

More wearable were the suit jacket, shirt and skinny tie combination. Frankie Morello was also inspired by nature, with a day spent at a country club providing the theme. Models were accessorised with riding crops, while minidresses came down the runway sporting horsehair tails. Underwear as outerwear was also a key look, with leather bras coming down the runway and corsets styled with shorts.

Laura Biagiotti showed a collection of extra-fine cashmere, with the fabric used to make mini-skirts, cardigans and leggings. Italian artist Giacomo Balla’s work was the inspiration for the show, with butterflies turning into skirts, dresses and ponchos. White featured heavily, with the designer explaining: “White evokes freedom, like the flight of a butterfly.”
