Dsquared2 X Invicta Capsule Collection
Dsquared2 and Invicta take on the great outdoors
Dsquared2 is getting outdoorsy in their newest collaboration with an Italian accessories brand, Invicta. Through a shared ideology for travel and style, the ready-to-wear collection takes a playful approach to outdoor hiking gear.
The collection was first revealed in the brand’s Men’s Fall Winter 2022 show in Milan and the key backpack design was seen in the Women’s Fall Winter 2022 collection. Taking inspiration from adventure and discovery, the collection emulates the pop culture impact Invicta had in the 80s. Invicta revolutionized the backpack, giving young Italians a stylish option for backpacking trips and seeing new vistas.
Dsquared2 prioritizes sporty, laidback ready-to-wear pieces that juxtapose perfectly with Invicta’s clean, modern Italian tailoring. The Canadian brand was sure to include their iconic maple leaf combined with the cursive I for Invicta for the co-logo. The logo will appear as a patch on backpacks, baseball caps, T-shirts, sweatshirts, and gaiters.
The backpacks are made in Invicta’s original designs, with a rectangular shape in a color block combination. The padded shoulder straps made from jacquard webbing and front tape stripes make it comfortable and sturdy for long hikes. Monviso, a backpack part of alpinist history, is restyled with unexpected color combinations and an oversized co-mixed logo makes the backpack stand out. The design is also functional, featuring pockets to organize personal items, padded shoulder straps, and a coulisse closure with a technical tubular cord.
The capsule collection will launch in August 2022 in all Dsquared2 stores, website and selected retailers.
