BREGANZE, Italy — Change is afoot at Diesel and parent company Only the Brave Srl, whose name has now been cut short to OTB SpA.
Stefano Rosso, son of Diesel founder Renzo Rosso, has been appointed co-chief executive officer of OTB. In a separate development, Daniela Riccardi, ceo of Diesel, will leave the denim and sportswear brand on April 1. A Procter & Gamble Co. veteran, Riccardi joined Diesel in 2010 with the goal of boosting global expansion. No information on a successor was provided at press time.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
