DSquared took inspiration from the school girl look. These garments use simple colors of black, white, gray, and a pop of red color, where the red is the plaid typically worn by school girls. And then they are wearing ties and dressed in business attire.
Consuelo Castiglioni created these garments with the 1970s in mind. The patterns of the dress, the color blocking and colors used for the coat outfit, and the loose fitting pant and coat outfit in the middle depict this perfectly. He also used shapes that were loose fitting in the dresses and fur coat.
