Diesel Black Gold Pre-Fall 2014 – Rebellious chic. Those are two words which can describe Diesel Black Gold’s pre-fall 2014 collection designed by Andreas Melbostad. Modeled by Stina Rapp and Maja Salamon, the lookbook images photographed by Kevin Sinclair feature all the trappings of Diesel’s cool girl aesthetic. Leather biker jackets, metal hardware and printed leather come together for the ultimate in city girl style. More feminine aspects like airy dresses or blouses bring some softness to pre-fall.
Diesel’s Spring Balance – For its spring 2014 collection, Diesel Black Gold aimed to fuse soft and hard elements with an outing of denim staples adorned with metal detailing. “[It is] a new ease of attitude by combining opposing icons to express strength and fearlessness,” says Diesel designer Andreas Melbostad about the upcoming season. Separates are made in soft fabrics such as silk crepe de chine, cotton poplin and silk georgette. Color for the season taps into white and black as well as an occasional pastel. While the first half of collection focuses on light materials and fabrics, the last section gets dark with an undeniably cool attitude featuring leather looks and utilitarian accents such as metal eyelets, discs, zippers, buckles and other hardware elements.
