Dean and Dan Caten were born in 1964 as Dean and Dan Catenacci in Toronto, Ontario. And grew up in the Willowdale area. They are the youngest of nine children. Their parents were from Napoli,Italy.
In 1983, they moved to New York to study fashion at Parsons The New School for Design, but stayed only one semester before returning to Toronto. Finding a financial backer in 1986, they launched their first signature womenswear collection, DEanDAN. In 1988 they had signed on to label Ports International (currently Ports 1961) as creative directors to bring the company more fashion forward and upscale. In 1991, the brothers moved to Milan, Italy where they worked as designers for the house of Gianni Versace, and denim brand Diesel, the latter of which funded and launched their namesake brand.
They debuted their men's collection in 1994, and in 2003, they launched a women's collection and a men's underwear collection. The DSquared2 line also includes footwear, male and female fragrances and eyewear.
