Dsquared2 Designer Profile


Dsquared2 was founded by two Canadian born twin brothers, Dean and Dan Catenacci.  Their father is from Casalvieri, a small town in Ciociaria, Lazio, Italy.  In 1991, the brothers moved to Milan, Italy where they worked as designers for the house of Gianni Versace and denim brand Diesel. It was actually Diesel that funded and launched their namesake brand. Dsquared2 is headquartered in Milan, Italy.  

Dsquared2 is known by its typical expression of the street world and unconventional, eccentric design, mixed with refined Italian tailoring and an attention to detail. All together it has given life to a unique concept of alternative luxury. In the past couple of years, Dsquared2 has grown to become more chic and sophisticated, all while maintaining those provocative traits that are so embedded in the brand’s creative roots.
