Canadian twins Dean and Dan Caten have focused on old Italian style for the DSquared2 Spring 2013 runway show. Mixing short-shorts, heavy gold chains, leather paperboy hats and formfitting tops has given the designers the ultimate guido stamp of approval for next spring. The Toronto-raised twins have much resembled the beloved Versace brand for next season.

Channeling rich Italy through the mixture of textures leaves this brand's loyal customers wanting more. From exposing midriffs to deep-v blouses, the DSquared2 Spring 2013 collection leaves nothing to the imagination. Glamorizing Italy's sultry style, the Caten twins have traveled far from their Canadian roots. The absenteeism of any Canadian influence is what has arguable given this brand its staying power. By exploring new cultures, one can fully grow into an iconic designer.
