Dsquared2 Inaugurates a New Boutique in Barvikha, Moscow Oblast.
Dsquared2 announces the opening of a new boutique, located in Barvikha Luxury Village. Located close to Moscow, Barvikha is a charming verdant village where wealthy residents of Moscow build their Dachas — seasonal second homes.

The boutique’s eye-catching interior reflects the unique imagery of Dsquared2, utilizing signature elements of decor that characterize all the brand’s boutiques. Piles of lark wood frame the windows, while the boutique’s abundant natural light is combined with decadant chandeliers crafted from stag horns, as well as luminescent lightboxes that glow with images of Canadian forests. Textural and warm design details profile other aspects of the store in the stone flooring, steel shelving, plush taupe carpets and comfortable upholstered armchairs and divans.
Divided precisely into diverse product categories, the store’s area adjacent to the entrance is dedicated to accessories and small leather goods, while the central carpeted space showcases shoes and bags. The boutique’s perimeters are flange with the men’s and women’s ready to wear collections, defined and separated by steel partitians. Dsquared2’s denim collection gets a dedicated spotlight with different jean styles positioned on steel hooks suspended from the ceiling and enhanced by background images of lush backlit forests – motifs of Canada the birthplace of the designers behind the brand.

PERTURBEDWONDERFUL | DSQUARED2 WOMENSWEAR FW 14 24.02.2014
Once a glamorous star, she finds herself in an institution with her wardrobe of magnificent things. Despite her dizzying mental state she is always dressed to the hilt. Perturbed and wonderful, Dsquared2 takes inspiration from this striking woman for the autumn winter 2014 collection. Dramatic femininity is underscored with iconic 60s shapes of swingy jackets, short shift dresses, capes and cropped pants. Rich textures are found in mink inserts, python skins, feathers, paillettes and jewels, all symbols of her dazzling former life. Decadent eveningwear has couture constructions: a narrow long sheath has a cape back, an emerald floor-length cape is covered with long black feathers, and a glistening matte gold and cream gown’s fluted bust is trimmed with a crystal bow at the waist. Daywear is infused with lashings of drama and opulence. Evoking the structured lines of a classic nurse’s uniform, bonded white leather and stretch inserts are second-skin like mini dresses worn with double-breasted capes. A felted wool tunic is inlaid with avocado hued mink. Jacquard silk pants with a shimmering lurex pattern are paired with a white fur top. Dense three-dimensional pailettes and jewels encrust mini shift dresses and matching jackets. Sumptuous furs are paired with nude silk lingerie and pajamas. Detailed construction in a meshed silk nude mini corseted dress recalls an orthopedic garment. Emerald and teal glossy python skins are cut into long-sleeved short tunic and a cropped jacket with matching python pumps, hats and bags. Brace like mesh and leather ankle straps accent sandals, revealing the same stiletto spiked heel as softly rounded-toe pumps. Another pump style with a squared toe, doctor bags and rectangle clutches are embellished with mink, plumage or jewels. A mini clutch with handles is encased in scaffolding-like metal. Felted round high hats with narrow brims are trimmed in fur. Bracelets and neck cuffs are also styled like braces; other arm cuffs are loaded with jewels and connected to finger rings shimmering with stones. Oversized Jackie O style sunglasses come with clip-on jewelry over the brow, or sides and temples. Their sparkle gives off a kaleidoscope of fragmented lights, the flash before her release back into everyday life, where the episode could have easily been a dream.
