DSquared2 speaks of happy winter days ahead

MILAN (AP) -- The setting was Catens' High, the music was 1960s rock and the clothes were perfect for a date with Fonzie.

The DSquared2 womenswear winter collection by designing twins Dean and Dan Caten, previewed Monday, the last day of Milan Fashion Week, was all about "Happy Days" and carefree nights.

Teeny bopper models in sequined sneakers and pert caps sported tight cropped jeans or a hip-hugging skirt, paired with colorful leather jackets for a hot date at the movies.

The high school dance calls for a switch to high-heeled sequined pumps and beehive hair styles.

A banner at the end of the runway tells us this is a party for the graduating class of 2013.

More sophisticated than her grandmother, our teenage queen prefers black to yesteryear pastels for her slit-up the side prom gown. Her escort is in a traditional white tuxedo jacket with black lapel.

This girl has expensive tastes. She likes her denimwear trimmed in fur, her blouse covered in pearls, and when she talks leather she means crocodile.
