Andreas Melbostad kept this outing short and sweet, with a lineup of tiered minidresses in broderie anglaise, frill-edged lingerie looks and the odd hard-edged detail. It is a Diesel collection after all. “Delicate and tough, a mix of utility and femininity, romantic and ethereal,” was how the designer described it as he cast an eye over the mood board before the show. Femininity definitely won in the form of a peach-rose palette of tiered skirts, slips with frills, cropped A-line jackets and long, lightweight suede dresses. Cotton eyelet tops and dresses were done in black or white broderie anglaise, some with bib fronts. A dash of spice balanced the sweetness in the form of corset-style ties for short, flippy dresses and abbreviated cotton jackets, while parka-like drawstrings dangled from flower-print skirts. The designer also worked olive green into the mix, via more minis and a cotton coat with full sleeves, while footwear — including knee-high gladiator sandals and high-top sneakers — added an athletic edge. In the past, this collection has veered into too-tough territory, thanks to buckles and leather, so the spoonful of sugar went down nicely.
