Recent Dsquared2 by Dean & Dan Black Jersey Halter Dress a Attached Cape

The Dsquared2 brand was started by Dean and Dan Canten, identical twins born in Canada. In 1991, the brothers moved to Milan where they worked as designers for the house of Gianni Versace. They also had a short stint as designers with the Diesel brand. In 1995 they launched the Dsquared2 label. This is a more recent piece and it is gorgeous. It manages to be both sleek and simple and yet complete drama at the same time. It is gorgeous

The black jersey this dress is made of is the perfect choice for it to fall and drape perfectly once on the body. The fabric has just enough weight so that the drape down the front is perfectly executed, but it is still light enough to feel extremely comfortable once on the body. The simple yet dramatic cut has that nod back to the glamour days of Hollywood. Straps made from the  same fabric extends from the center of the bust and curve up and around the neck. They twist at the front with a little keyhole underneath that gives a glimpse of bare skin. There are two tiny straps that extend out from that twist that wrap around you and secure tot he back of the dress to help keep it in place. From there the dress drapes down and around you in this supermodel long sheath of jersey. It skims over the body and slightly flares out at the hem. Added to this as that dramatic attached cape. It is actually attached and a part of that front twist. There is a opening that you slip your head through and then it drapes down into this fabulously dramatic cape down the back. You can wear it draped over the shoulder or more as a panel behind you. It will catch the air when you move and billows around you fantastically. It is simple, sexy and perfect. It looks to have never been worn. Excellent condition
