Fall into Spring and Summer With Diesel Black Gold

It seems that Diesel Black Gold may be forecasting a rather cold spring and summer season.  From leather blazers and pants, bomber jackets, bundled up scarves, and layered knits in a typically fall palette of cognacs, caramels, dusty tans and grays; the only thing really keeping this collection from screaming fall are the strappy leather sandals and thigh-high shorts. By the way, did I mention there was no swimwear in sight?

Now, I have to admit that the collection as a whole is a breathe of fresh air for the brand, and it definitely is a more sophisticated route. However, creative director Sophia Kokosalaki might as well have gotten rid of the ‘Diesel’ in Diesel Black Gold.

From the time Diesel was founded in the late 70s, through its successful crossover into the high-end category in the 90s, to present day, the emphasis of the brand has always been denim based with great distressed detailing.  Flash-forward into S/S 2011 and shades of dark, dusty colors have displaced indigo blues, and the usual frayed edges and signature deconstructed look are subbed with fades and a more worn in look. As for men, the silhouette is slimmer than ever.

Of course fashion is always about looking forward and it’s ever-changing, and in fact since the beginning, Diesel turned their backs on the style-dictators and consumer forecasters of the fashion establishment and let their own tastes lead them. So, in reality such a radical departure–even though we love their denim–shouldn’t come as a shock.

So, even with fall just kicking off, are you ready to fall into spring and summer?
