SKIN & EXPECTED ROCK EDGE
By Marcellous L. JONES
Milan, Italy – Diesel Black Gold is all about bearing a little skin in Spring/Summer 2014. This is created with very structured crew neckline shirts, t-shirt and shorts. When the trousers are longer, they are cut still above the ankles in order to reveal just a hint of flesh.
The collection has lots of denim. Some denim trousers are meshed with patterned fabrics on the outer seam. We have a cargo pant in black that also has large black single-band outer seams in black satin.
The denim pieces are done to be more stylish than just a simple jeans or denim jacket. Look for them in strong but still subtle prints. Leather is important in establishing and maintaining the expected rock edge of the Diesel look. They’ve even created man trousers in it as well as a crewneck t-shirt. To get into it, a zipper is required and it runs from the back down the spine.
Done mostly in black, white and with a hint of blue, there is lots of hand finishing. This is a key in establishing the strong personality of the collection.
