Diesel Black Gold presents its Spring Summer 2013 menswear collection.
June 28, 2012: Have you been waiting to don that chic, rock look which you have been seeing actors sport effortlessly in various movies? The Diesel Black Gold Spring/Summer 2013 menswear collection is just that. It evokes the anachronistic punk world of the 1980s - 90s, reinterpreting it with a fresh approach for today’s men.
The tailoring is infused with military and mechanical references. Jewellery buttons, metallic lace eyewear, bold zips, mechanical flowers, embroidered in tailored suiting and classic shirts add that touch of punk. Military-inspired constructions include 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.
Contemporary elements come also through in the use of contrast textures, such as leather combined with suede, satin with Japanese microfiber, jacquard with rib, cool wool with leather, emphasized with technical and rich details to create a 3D effect bringing to life the collection. Denim is burned by laser, artfully distressed and artisanal engineered at the same time.
The colour palette is a 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.
