Art-Teacher Chic: The Trend That Takes Oversize, Modest, and Comfortable Clothes Out of the Classroom

Trends are fun to talk about, but they don’t feel real until you see them, totally unforced, in the wild. I recently stopped by Poketo, a gallery-meets-lifestyle store in L.A.’s burgeoning Arts District. One of the most stylish women I saw there was wearing a chambray shirt so oversized it fell into an A-line, a pair of black ankle-length trousers, and clogs.

As Dsquared² approaches its 20th anniversary, it’s apparent that Dean and Dan Caten are enjoying the success of the brand they built. On the eve of their Spring/Summer 2015 runway show, the Dsquared² studio in Milan is not a frantic madhouse of last-minute fittings and collection edits. In the large room in the refurbished warehouse where the brand (and the restaurant/nightclub they own) is based, racks of clothing organized into looks line the walls, shoes are in a neat row on the floor, bags and accessories are laid out neatly on tables.
