Dsquared2 Opens in Bal Harbour
By Katie Jackson
Popular Canadian brand Dsquared2 has finally opened their first boutique in Miami last week. Founded by Ontario-born twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten, Dsqaured2 provides a unique alternative to luxury. Combining their Canadian roots with superior Italian materials and craftsmanship, the brand is quickly expanding throughout the United States. After successfully opening flagship stores in New York and Los Angeles, Dsquared2 has made Miami their latest venture.
Both Dean and Dan Caten, owners and creative directors of Dsqaured2, collaborated with Milan-based architectural firm Storage Associati to create an innovative design for the Miami boutique. Located in the prestigious shopping center of Bal Harbour, the store features over 2,000 square feet on the first floor alone, and contains stunning architectural detail. To pay tribute to their Canadian heritage, forests and nature are the underlying themes of the store’s interior. The dressing rooms are back dropped by illuminated imagery of Canadian forests, while ochre velvet armchairs are placed throughout the store. Outside, the boutique’s windows are framed with inserts of lark wood, creating a refined visual.
The brothers are thrilled to bring Dsqaured2 to Miami. “We adore Miami, we visit there often to holiday and are inspired by the city and its people. That’s why opening our Dsquared2 store in Bal Harbour is such an important moment for us and our brand. We just celebrated our 20th anniversary. To be able to do so with our flagship in such an important luxury destination has been a long-held dream of ours”, said Dan and Dean Caten.
The Bal Harbour location will carry both men’s and women’s ready to wear collections, in addition to fragrances, eyewear, and accessories. The boutique also offers an entire section dedicated to the beloved Italian-crafted shoes and handbags.
