Dan and Dean Caten, the Canadian design duo behind DSquared2, recently launched a line of sunglasses (inspired by hip-hop icons like Run DMC) and created costumes for Britney Spears’ blockbuster Circus tour. But not even a jam-packed schedule can keep them from the beach. From London, Dan shares DSquared2’s holiday faves.

•Destination “For 10 years, we’ve been going to Mykonos. It’s a forsure sunshine vacation.”

•Cocktail “A Spritz: a bright orange-red drink made with aperol or Campari and Martini Bianco.”

•Beach reads “We love to read trashy magazines and catch up on who’s leaving who.”

•Packing essentials “A great pair of light baggy jeans, cool sandals and a white shirt. And an Hermès towel!”

•Summer memory “Swimming at the pool in Goulding Park in North York [in Toronto]. We went there every day from 9 a.m. until it closed. We were bored teens — and we were in love with the lifeguards!”

•Sunglasses at night? “I always bring my sunglasses to the club — we don’t go home until noon, so we need them!”
