Nick Jonas recruits Dsquared2 for tour wardrobe

Nick Jonas is excited to wear Dsquared2 designs during his Future Now Tour shows.

Nick Jonas' Future Now Tour wardrobe has been designed by Dsquared2.

The 23-year-old singer has teamed up with designers Dean and Dan Caten on his performance outfits, with shows kicking off on Wednesday (29Jun16) in Atlanta, Georgia, and ending on 17 September (16) in Inglewood, California.

Nick and the Dsquared2's creative team selected five of the brand's runway looks to work from, all of which combine street style, high street fashion, modern attire and sleek silhouettes together. The end results are pieces like patchwork bomber jackets and crooked kilts complete with shirtsleeves tied around the waist.

“Fashion has always been a part of my identity and I’m excited to integrate Dsquared2 as a creative aspect of the tour,” Nick told WWD.

“Nick Jonas is the kind of man we think of when designing our collections - talented, modern and innovative,” Dean added. “The collection was about embodying all elements of strength, masculinity and self-expression. We’re very happy it’s part of Nick’s creative vision for the tour.”

Away from the stage Nick is known for his edgy style, rocking everything from jeans to a suit when in the spotlight. While he's previously named a leather jacket as his wardrobe staple, the pop star is open to trying new outfits like his musical style icon, 61-year-old Elvis Costello, would do.

"I always admired Elvis Costello’s style," Nick recently told People Magazine. "He makes bold choices, like taking classic tailoring and turning it into a punk edge. I try to take that same classic approach with a bit of a twist.”

You won't see Nick mixing up his hair again anytime soon though after previously pulling off curly, quiffed and buzzed styles. He's sticking with a shaved head because it's easy maintenance for now, as the last thing he wants is for his locks to be a "project".
