Beyoncé is flying Canada's colours during her Formation tour as the pop superstar wears custom designs by homegrown duo Dsquared2.

Toronto-born twin designers Dean and Dan Caten created a leather warrior jacket worn by Beyoncé during her Super Bowl performance.

Now, the duo behind the Milan-based label has reteamed with the singer to create the opening look for her tour, as well as complimentary styles for Beyoncé's 20 female dancers.

Fresh off the release of her visual album Lemonade, Beyoncé kicked off her tour in Miami on Wednesday night wearing a customized Victorian-style outfit inspired by the Dsquared2 fall-winter collection.

The design featured a black crystal embroidered bustier with velvet, puff-shouldered embroidered sleeves, a broad brim hat and lace-embellished leather gloves.

A tattoo lace bodysuit created an embroidery effect on the skin, with ruffled and jewelled black ankle boots completing the ensemble.

The Catens are used to creating stage costumes for high-profile stars, having previously outfitted Madonna and Britney Spears for their musical world tours.

Canada's Olympic and Paralympic athletes will also be sporting Dsquared2 styles at the upcoming Summer Games in Rio, with the label enlisted to create the opening ceremony outfit by official outfitter Hudson's Bay Co.

Beyoncé's Formation tour is slated to arrive in Edmonton on May 20 and in Toronto on May 25.
