Dsquared pays homage to Harlem...equipped with a very diverse model selection on the runway! reports:

"Dean and Dan Caten don’t miss a trick when they’re putting together a show. Back in the Days, Jamel Shabazz’s photographic history of hip-hop, was a starting point, which meant that a barbershop (practically a Harlem community center) was a logical backdrop. And the break-dancers made the point stronger. The Italian fashion industry has all of a sudden turned diversity into a cause—as you may have heard, the new issue of Vogue Italia is cover-to-cover black models—and the Caten twins extended the idea onto their catwalk. They did it not just with the models but also with the sounds and the styles they offered. Anyone who remembers the bad old days in the Catens' hometown of Toronto was transported straight back to the Twilight Zone, a seminal nightspot in the boys’ Personal Growth."

SOME of my FAV looks:

LOVE the denim vest with the khaki suit!

You've gotta love a man in his 3-piece stanging in a "b-boy stance"!
