Senior year in high school was Dean and Dan Caten’s idea for the clothes at DSquared this season. With the duo’s usual styling antics, this could have gone a variety of ways — homecoming queen, mean girl, prepster, nerd, slacker, to name a few — but in a positive, and surprising, move, the designers took on the theme with a more subtle, sophisticated hand, at least by their standards. The lineup had plenty wearable looks, like a chic toggle coat with a leopard print collar shown with a checked shirt, a shrunken cardigan and low-slung tight jeans rolled up just below the calf. A formfitting blue dress and matching jacket featuring brooch-like buttons and a white drawstring dress with a stand-up collar were quite elegant.

The Catens added a few alluring evening pieces that were less prom and more red carpet, including a black hourglass dress with a structured bodice and bow detail. The overall effect had a demure sex appeal that was more “Grease” than “90210,” though there were still touches of whimsy, the most evident coming via a poodle motif in a sweater that was teamed with a gold brocade pencil skirt.
