China is SexyDsquared2 and Oriental Vibes

A collection inspired by Kung Fu action
films and the 70s in Hong Kong.


The Dsquared2’s Spring Summer 2020 suggested an almost obvious Oriental inspiration which was reflected in the collection, in a wardrobe inspired by Kung Fu action films and the 70s in Hong Kong. The neon lights of the Chinese megalopolis, giant floral and embellished tiger prints, boxer styled robes, jackets and shorts. An American 50s ‘southern sun-belt’ silhouette is woven through high waisted cropped pants that show the tops of printed satin boxers, tucked-in short sleeve buttoned shirts with notch collars and bomber jackets. Pants and prints define the collection. The trousers come in three shapes all with high waists, the ‘Brad’, a straight leg, flat front cropped style and ‘Fight’ with a double front pleat. These are constructed in cotton canvas, one design reveals a crystal embroidered tiger on the leg, others in soft leather or clean, dark blue denim. Another women’s style combines the high waist with a full leg that sits higher on the calf.
The opulent fabrics take shape in other key pieces: kimono style long jackets, paper-feel parkas, and a women’s floor-sweeping chiffon gown made up of a patchwork of the collection’s placed prints in plissé ruffles with an embroidered neckline. When asked about why China, the two Ds replied: “Because it’s sexy! And there’s something rich about it.”
