Canadian-born designers Dean and Dan Caten, founders and creative directors of Dsquared2, are unveiling a partnership with Nick Jonas for his “Future Now” Tour. The upcoming co-headlining concert tour, which will see Jonas performing next to singer Demi Lovato, starts Wednesday in Atlanta, Ga.
Combining high fashion with street style and classic silhouettes with modern attire, the five runway looks selected by Jonas and the brand’s team are rooted in Dsquared2’s aesthetic, focused on denim, leather and graphic elements.
Inspired by the clash between an English punk attitude and a Japanese samurai warrior aesthetic, the outfits feature askew-hanged kilts with shirtsleeves knotted at the waist, plaid accents and zipper details on pants. Bomber jackets with a patchwork of different materials will complete Jonas’ wardrobe.
“Nick Jonas is the kind of man we think of when designing our collections — talented, modern and innovative,” said Dean Caten. “The collection was about embodying all elements of strength, masculinity and self-expression. We’re very happy it’s part of Nick’s creative vision for the tour.”
“Fashion has always been a part of my identity and I’m excited to integrate Dsquared2 as a creative aspect of the tour,” Jonas said.
The “Future Now” tour will touch base in 43 cities in North America through September 2016.
