The Diesel Black Gold menswear collection walked the runway in Milan, Italy yesterday with a celebrity front row. A-list Actors Stephen Dorff and Luke Evans were among those taking the front row seats and looked amazing.
The new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection from the brand was filled with metallics, suiting, velvet and of course, leather. It wouldn’t be a Diesel Black Gold show without the leather! The colour palette for the runway show consisted of dark shades in black, navy, purples and browns, but they also had brights in the shades of red, orange and blue. What I love most about Diesel Black Gold is that the clothes are very unisex, they also featured a female model wearing some of the new styles. I have included some of the info about the collection below.
A dreamer, a biker, a fighting musician in a life of perpetual movement across situations and frontiers. Diesel Black Gold FW’12 collection harkens back to Diesel’s roots, emphasizing and expressing the free soul of this metropolitan hero with military construction and vintage biker looks.
G arments are challenging yet classic – an entertaining clash of styles. Key items include stretch velvet suits, pony skin peacots, bomber jackets combining leather and felt through needle punch. Leather is crucial and it’s combined also with knitwear.
L oose fit and high waist pants are matched with super light & shiny nylon trench with metallic details; utility elements give garments a dynamic yet though feeling, such as the 3-D effect on knitwear. Seventies cuts are the last touch for the Diesel Black Gold contemporary man, who doesn’t forget his being a modern dandy looking for sophisticated treatments.
C olor palette ranges from black and anthracite to navy blue, tobacco, eggplant and brilliant red. Denim has its own space with 5 pockets fully hand-crafted in Okayama and Los Angeles with a traditional process, to express the real vintage look. The jeans lover will find also coated denim, or thermo-tape and flock details providing an alternative, “rock-chic” elegance to casual attires.
