Caten Chanel: Dsquared2 Spring/Summer 2013

Twin fashion designers Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared2 came up with a 90s Supermodel romp for their Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The inspiration looked like it was photographer Peter Lindbergh 1991 "Wild At Heart" US Vogue September 1991 issue photo editorial of all the top Supermodels--Linda, Naomi, Helena, Tatjana, Cindy...

When I first saw the photos--and full runway video--of the Dsquared2 Spring/Summer 2013 Collection, all I could think of was "I think the Chanel Lawyers might be knocking at their Atelier's door", because it is more than an homage to that veritable French House. The inspiration was very, very "Get The Lawyers On The Phone" close--but it was still superFAB:

Prada Spring/Summer 2013:

Flowers, Japonaise and stiff Duchesse Satin was on fashion designer Miuccia Prada's mind for Spring/Summer 2013. There was an obvious homage--of sorts--to Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcon:

The shapes were boxy yet still sexy and every look had an element of uniqueness to it--as has been de regueur for the House of Prada. Here are some of my favorite looks from Prada Spring/Summer 2013:
