Conceived from the minds of two, a bag with a versatile set of multiple personalities: combining contemporary and iconic, practicality and sophistication. The DD swings from the arm of a woman who is a master of transforming everyday chic into evening glamour.
The DD bag’s everyday appeal is found in its clean-lined rectangular shape and chain shoulder strap. Crafted in Italy, its smooth form features softly structured sides, built-in to the bag’s design. The ornamental DD logo recalls the initials of brothers and designers Dean and Dan Caten. Interlocked, the two letters are executed as one piece of striking hardware, resembling the forever intertwined souls of identical twins.
Every detail on the DD bag is curated for versatility and style: the chain strap can be adjusted to wear on the shoulder or as a cross-body design. Inside, the bag features multiple internal compartments and a zipped pocket.
Evolving the original design of shoulder/cross body bag’s three sizes, for fall the DD comes in two new models: a one-handle shopping bag with a removable strap for day and a clutch with a removable chain strap—a functional and feminine design that effortlessly slips from day to dusk.
The DD bag’s color palette and materials include a multitude of highly textured and signature fabrics. Smooth natural grain calfskin is finished with black with gold or nickel hardware, in hues of military green, natural brown and pale pink. Denim, a Dsquared2 icon, in a faded aqua bubble wash creates a distinct take on the classic bag, while precious exotic Ayers skin lends opulence for special events.
Underscoring the Fall Winter 2016 collection’s military inspiration, a new season model is accented with army style details. Crafted from a sophisticated combination of Ayers and matelassé calf leather, the bag is embellished with cartridge belt workmanship on the side, the DD logo in golden nickel, and golden rings and snap hooks on the shoulder strap.
