Here are the images from Diesel Black Gold’s women’s runway show at New York Fashion Week. I have included all of the photos in the gallery below, with images 1-6 being the brands key looks for the season. I have also included their press release about the collection and show. What do you think of it?
Street style is given a contemporary polish in a discreetly sporty Diesel Black Gold Spring/Summer 2013 Collection! Urban skate parks, 90’s fashion imagery, and the eclectic dress sense of creative city dwellers inspired Sophia Kokosalaki to design a collection that merges the adrenalin-driven world of skateboarding with the poise and sophistication of the contemporary art scene.
Sportswear is cleaned up and smoothed down, resulting in slickly fluid garments. These are stealth skaters, flowing through the night on silent wheels. They wear rich, innovative materials: butter-soft leather, bonded fabrics and treated denim. Edgy pieces are tempered by a feminine sensibility, giving even masculine garments a subtle ambiguity.
Women wear sharply tailored jackets and pants, as well as trim shorts and boldly sexy skirts. Net appears on dresses to create a mysterious hide-and- seek effect, or is bonded with leather for an appealing contrast of transparent and opaque. The color palette is pared down to black and white, with subtle hints of color.
Prints are inspired by the obsessive detail of street art and skate park graffiti. The brand’s rock-chic DNA remains omnipresent, but the functionality of urban sports apparel emerges as tape on pants and strap effects on dresses. The result is an uncompromisingly contemporary and wearable collection for a demanding audience with a taste for luxury and a youthful spirit.
Here is the look at the new Spring 2013 racing/nomad inspired collection by Rag & Bone. The clothes had the classic cool aesthetic that Rag & Bone is known for. Slouchy pants, loose shirts and layering reigned this season.
What kept this collection fresh was the color palette, which has to be one of my favorites that has walked so far. The greens, corals, blues, whites, and greys were the color of choice. You can see the full collection below.
After a successful women’s collaboration, Christopher Kane has launched another one with J Brand for men. Just like the ladies, these are bold and are sure to make you stand out amongst the other guys. The jeans range from floral, faded black, frayed and painted.
I actually found this collection to be quite cool. My favorite ones would have to be the painted ones above. I think the movements of the brush strokes are really amazing. You can see all the other men’s pieces from the Christopher Kane x J Brand collaboration below.
The Christopher Kane x J Brand collection continues. This season he skipped the neons and went for prints and embellishments. He also introduced a couple of new silhouettes such as long jackets and dresses.
I think these pieces are really unique, especially some of the prints. I think the dress above is quite nice. I think that will be a popular piece. I also like the floral print pair, it’s really cool. They make me think of a projection that has been lasered directly onto the jeans.
