Dsquared2 is back on the Milanese catwalks, after 23 months of digital fashion shows, with a collection dedicated to men, inspired to “fashion hikers”, where a cobranded collaboration with Invicta, Italian legendary brand leader since the80’s in the sports and school backpacks market, stands out.

The Fall Winter 2022/23 collection showcased by Disquared2 is called # D2Hi_king – jeu de mots dedictated to the kings of the heights to be reached by climbing. For the Invicta capsule collection, Dean and Dan Caten have designed a logo that integrates the Dsquared2 maple leaf within the Invicta logo.

Outdoor is the general mood of the collection, with a multitasking twist: plaids used as ponchos, sleeping bags turned into jackets, kilts worn over trousers, shorts paired with tights, hiking boots with nylon gaiters and down jackets over blazers.

Invicta capsule collection is instead limited to a few items and accessories, including a hooded sweatshirt, a hat, nylon gaiters and, of course, a maxi backpack, complete with climbing accessories, such as harnesses, carabiners, ropes, and water bottles.
