Dsquared2 launches bathing suit style cocktail dresses

Saturated with joyful colours and an upbeat carefree vibe, the idyllic island beaches of the 50s are where Dsquared2’s vacation belles are headed next summer.

Glowing from the sun, their bathing beauty style, reminiscent of Esther Williams, turns up the luster at night where they cocktail and cha cha decked out in the haut-est of island glamour.

Feminine, 50s couture inspired shapes come in a duo of head-turning silhouettes. Bathing suit style cocktail dresses with hiked hemlines are padded at the hips and bust to exaggerate hourglass curves.

Longer skirts and dresses are puffed up with tulle layers and balloon hems to emphasize tiny waists, topped with cocoon-sleeved cocktail coats. Leathers come laser cut with a delicate lace pattern, as sheared pony in a jungle print or opulently glossy in a crocodile miniskirt and cropped trapeze jackets.

Fabrics inspired by upholstery textiles of the era are given the luxe treatment via punchy prints, three-dimensional lame effects and floral embroideries that bloom over shorts and jackets. Dripping with crystals and beads, bustier dresses sparkle and glitter when Dsquared2’s beach beauties shake to the Mambo.

Matching accessories give the pretty beach looks a ladylike edge. The structured Vancouver bag’s feminine lines and polished lock, and slingback pointed pumps coordinate the richly coloured looks in the same fabrics and leathers. A sexy sandal reveals a crafted wooden heel inspired by the leg of a 50s dining table design.

Jaunty lampshade hats and seductive cat eye glasses with detachable sunglass frames in tortoiseshell, mother of pearl or horn add to the intrigue. Jumbo jewels are mixed with oversized gold leaves and bunches of coral for show-stopping necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
