Camp is always an element at Dean and Dan Caten's shows, of course, but for Spring, the twins took the camping theme quite literally. Not that you could call their take on the great Canadian pastime roughing it, despite the Budweiser 40s the models toted down the runway and the Band-Aids that presumably covered their bushwhacking wounds. Their cutoff shorts, tees, and jean jackets came tarted up with sky-high neon patent-leather platform booties and gray hiking socks and were tweaked with plastic coverings—the better to stay dry in the wild, presumably.Other outdoors gear also got the Caten treatment: Evening gowns wrapped in plastic so the stay gorgeous while hiking, Plasticized denim which is taking the idea of denim to the next level, and the simplest of ideas diamond bug brooches. The innovation and imagination is cranked up in the collection and in terms of fun its was one of the best shows in Milan.
As a side note I am looking forward to Paris next week.
