WWD: Kokosolaki to Design Diesel Black Gold

From WWD ISSUE 06/17/2009

 

MILAN ??” Sophia Kokosalaki is facing change. 

The London-based designer will take on a lead design role in the development of Diesel??™s high-end contemporary line, Black Gold. Her title and start season will be determined shortly.

???[Kokosalaki??™s] talent is incredible. Her taste in high-end fashion is already known, but what people do not necessarily expect from her is her skill in dealing with denim and contemporary casual, the core of Diesel Black Gold. I hope this experience will give her the possibility to further affirm her place in today??™s international fashion scenario,??? said Renzo Rosso, chairman of Diesel and its holding company, Only the Brave.

At the same time, the Greek designer has acquired her namesake company from Only the Brave for an undisclosed sum. 

Kokosalaki, who nearly always wears black and denim, launched her signature collection in 1999 and sold the company to Only the Brave two years ago. Under Rosso, she expanded it to include accessories and costume jewelry.
