The rock 'n' roll virgins of Diesel Black Gold
In his second season for the brand of the group with 1.513 billion euro, Andreas Melbostad imagines a seemingly delicate femininity. Dress in immaculate surfaces and cast metal studs and fragments of mirror
Rock virgins scratch the marble floors of Grand Central station. Andreas Melbostad imagines a immaculate parade of groupies for the summer 2014 Diesel Black Gold label, avant-garde of Diesel house (see box on page II). "This season I wanted to play with a more feminine side of my womenswear, using white and a palette of pastel shades, purged of any trace of affectation," said Melbostad in his second season at the helm of womenswear, "I liked the 'idea of a woman of character, strong, capable of experiencing pieces of attitude lighter and evanescent."Go-ahead for cast of pure white, for the leather decorated with mosaics of studs and mirrors, for the broderie anglaise cotton inlaid, for the powdered denim, or small bustier blouses from the innocent-looking. Hoisted on Texans meta morphed, girls of the brand feature a palette that mimics delicate tones from dawn, with touches of pink and gray.
And in short, small bomber jacket and slim pants with the corset seams, the soul more wild comeback in the pitch black lava that enliven the evening. Strict from rock 'n' roll concert.
Judgment. In his second season Melbostad is able to give Diesel Black Gold precise and definite soul: rock but with a special twist. It matters little that in the denim fashion show is a bit fugitive. The look of like and conquest together and it is cool. And above all, has character and projecting the rock universe of Diesel Black Gold to new shores. (All rights reserved)
