TEAMWORK WORKS: Dan and Dean Caten, the identical twins behind the label Dsquared, presented an efficient front Thursday at a personal appearance in Milan’s La Rinascente department store in front of the city’s Duomo. There to greet customers for their new women’s scent, She Wood, the brothers divided up the tasks at hand — Dan signed bottles of the scent, while Dean spritzed it onto wrists. Taking in the crowd of about 150 fans who showed up, Dan said, “It’s crazy. We love meeting the people who wear our scents and our clothes. It makes people understand who we are and that we are passionate about our work.”
STYLE WISE: Hana, a new maker of flatirons, is expanding into adjunct products including hair dryers and serums in a bid to capitalize on the demand for high-end styling appliances. The Philadelphia-based company, which was formed in March this year, counts as its flagship product the Hana Elite Iron, which is priced at $189. But at the end of this month, it is launching two mini flatirons — one in pink, the other in blue — that are collapsible and contract to 5 inches in length, and can be extended to the size of a regular flatiron. They will retail for around $50.
