Diesel Black Gold S/S 2011





HERE ARE MY FAV LOOKS FROM THE COLLECTION

Key trend for women- leather pieces with embossed texture- tan coloured foot wear- water paint prints.

Key trend for men are coloured dirty denim –scarf and cross over sandals.


Get this: Diesel had a runway show and not a single blue jean was included.

"We have a lot of blue denim in Diesel, so it's not necessary to go down this way—everybody knows we have this," Sophia Kokosalaki,

Diesel Black Gold's creative director, explained backstage. That's a bold move, but one that made for a compelling show. Kokosalaki subbed dark, dusty colors for the indigo blues, and, for the most part, leather for the denim. (It's central, she says, to the company DNA, and owner Renzo Rosso agrees.) And when Jacquelyn Jablonski tromped out in the first look—a cognac-colored leather jacket with a peplum and a thigh-grazing mini made of sewn-together leaf-like scraps that looked like nothing so much as a cowhide hula skirt— WHICH REALLY MAKES THE COLLECTION STAND OUT FROM THE REST.

HAPPY WEDNESDAY XX
