Review: DSquared2

Trying to fight your way into the D Squared show through throngs of teenage girls was a little odd as this is not the usual demographic waiting outside a fashion show. But all was revealed when lead singer of the German band Tokio Hotel, Bill Kaulitz, opened the show. I've never really understood teenage girls' facination with androgynous men in makeup, David Bowie, Freddy Mercury, Depeche Mode, etc. The only thing butch about Bill is his name. In stark contrast is his twin brother Tom another one of the band members who is in baggy jeans with pierced lip and donning full on skater punk look. Thank God for some outrageous fabulousness and Steven Klein type dark glamour at this show. For this we can always rely on Dean and Dan Caten. The mood was unusually gothic for the duo, with lots of leather and pvc throughout the show, completed with fingerless leather glove with chains. The makeup was disturbingly sexy with all of the boys' faces and torsoes blood spattered and bruised. There is no nod to the recession at D Squared, no denim type workwear accessibility from them. But, you have to love the boys for really not giving a shit and doing whatever they want.
