MILAN – To further complement their blossoming lifestyle brand, Dsquared2 designers Dan and Dean Caten have signed a five-year license with Marcolin for their first eyewear collection.

The pact is for production and worldwide distribution of men’s and women’s frames. Dsqaured2 launched its first fragrance last year.

“Eyewear was our missing link and we feel it’s important because a pair of glasses can make a distinctive statement and pull a look together,” said Dan Caten. “We plan a sporty chic look by working with sharp and linear shapes and using color and enamel details.”
