Diesel Spring Fall Winter 2012 menswear collection
A continuation of the preview collection and its themes of portworker and “The
thin line between old and new.” This is Fall/Winter 2012: a collection that follows
the season from the first signs of autumn to the harshest winter months with
clothes that aren’t afraid to be who they are.
Early Fall sees tobacco and different shades of indigo predominate. Indigo is used
for denim, as well as treated corduroy pants and jackets, while tobacco sits pretty
on a number of different jackets. It all has a touch of the great outdoors, particularly
in hybrid boots and light bodywarmers. Not to mention the patterned jacquard
knits that create warm, unified style across sweaters, gloves, scarves and hats.
Burgundy is the new colour of the season. It is used in a variety of knitwear styles,
as well as becoming a new Color Exposure shade for denim: the reverse sides of
jeans match the new knitwear.
Workwear remains firmly embedded in Diesel’s DNA and naturally denim workwear
is key to this collection. Whether treated and untreated, plain or striped, textured
or smooth, jeans, utility jackets and overalls treat workwear with the respect it
For early Winter, indigo is joined by gray and green. A bright, eye-popping green is
featured on the delivery’s key piece: unique knickerbockers training pants in
patterned knitwear. This idea of making a classic an original – hi-tech performance
vintage – is also seen in denim, where grandpa-stripe denim is coated to produce a
technical, contemporary workwear look.
Outerwear is quite simply premium thanks to a fascinating mix of fabrics, as seen in
the hybrid jacket that combines knitwear and fake fur. Winter work apparel is also
lined to feel soft and cozy while keeping you warm in the cold.
The final part of the collection takes black and redefines it in a variety of different
fabrics: leather, denim, shearling and hi-tech nylon. Add a few touches of gray and
white to spice things up and you have clothes that are chic and relaxed.
For a Winter rock look, there is leather in tight jackets and slinky pants, for clothes
in which you’ll want to strut your stuff.
Diesel’s redefinition of what denim can be continues with its Color Exposure D.N.A.
denim. Featuring delicate handmade treatments that impregnate deep into the
heart of the fabric, the insides of jeans become bright features in themselves. Just
slip them on, turn up the leg and you’ve got a whole new world of color in your
A new approach – and one that will continue in the future – is the use of textured
denim, with herringbone, salt&pepper and grandpa stripes, in treated and
In the accessory collection is recognizable the strong and vintage Diesel DNA. Style
the Thinker boots realized with the oily treated leather, can be perfectly matched
with the Anwards bag. The balanced mix of leather and suede with the functional
external pocket make it one of Diesel best performing leather lines.
Bags contrast nicely with the down-at-home knits thanks to futuristic touches such
as the use of hardwearing fused plastics.
Hi Jack II, an everyday bag for a sophisticated consumer. Made of polyurethane and
nylon twill for a soft but yet thick and resistant hand feel. Zips, logo and rings in gold
colour & enamelled metal hardware in tonal colour enhance this line’s details. To
combine with Skillo boots, a very qualitative combat boot style in leather with
colour contrast details, pop up leather lining and sockliner, and textured rubber
Underdenim is the best and most intimate way to live Diesel’s denim heritage.
It’s a new line of male underwear created to give you the same feeling that only a
pair of Diesel denim can give you. Made in soft stretch cotton, it reproduces the
same features of a real denim through selvage detailing, 3stitch denim look and a
blue denim wash color palette. Made for denim lovers, so when you strip off your
jeans you are still in denim.
