DOU­BLING DOWN!

Iden­ti­cal twin broth­ers and de­sign­ers Dan and Dean Caten made twice the splash this year, open­ing Dsquared2 at The Shops at Crys­tals and de­sign­ing Ricky Martin’s res­i­dent show, All In. Plus: Get ready for “glunge.”

Dan and Dean Caten are the iden­ti­cal twin Cana­dian broth­ers be­hind the fierce lux­ury brand Dsquared2, whose cloth­ing, ac­ces­sories, fra­grances and eye­wear have adorned every bold name you can imag­ine, from Brit­ney Spears and Madonna to Justin Tim­ber­lake and Fergie (to name a few), and they’ve bet big on Ve­gas this year. We caught up with the dy­namic duo when a cer­tain friend of theirs named Ricky Martin dropped by to help them open their new store.

Why was this year the right time to open the fourth Dsquared2 store in the United States, at The Shops at Crys­tals?

Las Ve­gas felt like it would make sense for us to have a stand-alone store. It’s Sin City—fun, ex­trav­a­gant and a gem. Crys­tals is home to many lux­ury brands, and it was the right fit at the right time.

What did you have in mind in de­sign­ing Ricky Martin’s new res­i­dency at Park The­ater at Monte Carlo?

It was a very col­lab­o­ra­tive process, and the tim­ing, co­in­ci­den­tally, was per­fect with the open­ing of our store. We wanted to help bring the dif­fer­ent sec­tions of Ricky’s show to life.

What are we go­ing to see from Dsquared2 this fall?

We like mash­ing up themes and ideas. Our fall run­way col­lec­tion is ‘glunge’— glam­orous grunge. Lots of over­size knits, our sig­na­ture plaid in a va­ri­ety of sil­hou­ettes and state­ment out­er­wear mixed with leather and fun ac­cents.

Clock­wise from top left: Glunge will work nicely in Dsquared2’s fab new store in Crys­tals; the twins be­hind the trends; Ricky Martin, outfi tted by Dsquared2.
