Classic signature pieces of the brand’s contemporary heritage were at the core of Diesel Black Gold’s pre-fall collection.
Creative director Andreas Melbostad continued his process of hybridization to realize unconventional outerwear, including cropped biker jackets combined with quilted nylon looks. Their masculine, slightly tough attitude was tempered by peasant blouses, pinafore skirts and a plissé leather overall skirt. Enhancing the street appeal of the collection, a Seventies retro sporty inspiration was echoed in wide-leg pants with side bands running down the legs, as well as in the zippered cardigans embellished by graphic motifs. Key themes of the women’s range returned in the men’s lineup for a look that was almost unisex.
Hybrid outerwear included a peacoat combined with a bomber jacket, as well as a field jacket mixed with a quilted nylon style. Pants were cut slim and ranged from aviator-inspired nylon trousers with multiple zippers to jeans with colorful side bands. The collection was infused with an urban attitude, which turned modern and appealing for Diesel Black Gold’s tribe of metropolitan cool kids.
