Dsquared2 Catwalk Report Maybe this concept wasn’t in line with the great classics of the season, but the show was packed with palpable inspiration that made great material for a collection that didn’t fail to electrify the audience and tickle the creative nerves at Platform. Chanel Iman wearing a full length black dress with a slit up the entire length of the leg and a bodice ornamented with black and red ostrich feathers made homage to one of the most famous and sexiest comic characters ever created, Jessica Rabbit. ‘Super power, super woman, super sexy,’ was the spirit that Dean and Dan captured this season, which materialised as DSquared2’s very own female superhero. The back story; set in the laboratory of the ‘Fashion Manga Girls’, the super heroines (read models) are building their own, possibly perfect, men – so the inspiration maybe not be as poetic or profound as the general stimulus for the season, but most certainly the substance of a graphic novel for the likes of Frank Miller. Located against the back drop of an elevator shaft, the first super heroine arrives at her destination (the runway) by descending in the glass elevator. She pulls open the two caged doors, which at either side stands two male beefcakes (men the Fashion Manga Girls made earlier), who aside from their bandages and jock straps are practically naked. The dominatrix style super heroines, with exposed veins (in the form of red and blue beaded sheer body suits), attired in red vinyl leggings, cinch waists, hard shoulders, leather skirt suits and ‘don’t mess with me’ platforms, strut down the runway with an aggressive march surged by their female powers. It wouldn’t be wrong to suspect the Fashion Manga Girl’s stride down the runway be the preparation for the heroine to take flight...who knows, maybe she will... P
