The Diesel Black Gold Spring Summer 2013 menswear collection was shown during Milan Menswear Fashion Week. Compared to other collections shown during fashion week, the Diesel Black Gold guy can be my guy for next summer and not just because of the many tattoos visible from inside the tailored jackets.
It will be a blue summer for Diesel with the blue suede biker jacket with embroidered leather sleeves being my favorite piece shown on the runway. The black and blue brogues will be a must-have shoe design, hopefully making guys ditch the flip-flops for ever.
Moreover, Adrien Brody was in attendance dressed in a black suit. Please Adrien! Wear suits every single day of your life,
Before the Diesel Black Gold show
Favorite piece from the collection: blue suede biker jacket with embroidered leather sleeves
Masculine tailoring infused with military and mechanical references: a play with details, proportions and high-waist silhouettes. Steampunk inspiration is accented with several strong technological and functional elements: jewellery buttons, metallic lace eyewear, bold zips, mechanical flowers, embroidered in tailored suiting and classic shirts.
They are mixed with military-inspired constructions: a casual jacket with a elastic hem, which recalls the army underwear, a hunting vintage jacket with the typical arm protection shoulders detail, which is developed as prints and embroideries in different garments.
The colour palette is a playful melange of black navy and different shades of white, exploring the indigo tones, with clashes of intense pop-up colours – red, green, bright mustard, yellow, electric blue.
The collection includes graphic geometrical stripes, applied in various treatments: as prints for knitwear, jackets, trousers and as distinctive element for shoes, bags and belts.
