A trip around the world. An epic voyage of discovery. A new tribe.
For the Fall/Winter 2018 season, Diesel Black Gold delivers an eclectic forward-thinking wardrobe.
Diverse influences are collected around the globe and combined into a lineup, where the brand’s signature urban, contemporary codes are updated with a tribal, multi-ethnic filter.
A sense of inclusivity and aggregation permeates the collection highlighting fashion’s unifying power.
A Bohemian feel influences the overall silhouette. Tunics inspire the fit of men’s shirts and sweaters, all decorated with high-side slits and paired with straight and slim pants. At the same time, the bold shapes of peasant dresses and ethnic gowns inform the women’s silhouettes, including flared pants with high side slits.
A sense of artisanal craftsmanship emerges in the lineup, which is focused on tactile textures.
The brand’s signature staples, such as leather jackets, bombers, military peacoats and denim pants, are embellished with inserts in multicolor Navajo carpet patterns, while a patchwork of different shearlings define the eye-catching Mongolian coats.
Military quilted garments are reworked with an Eskimo spirit and Native American stone studs are combined with hardware for multi ethnic decors.
Detachable Navajo blanket linings appear on separates, leather biker jackets are embellished with fringes, new outwear styles mix the silhouette of a urban bomber with Mexican and Peruvian Baja sweaters are cut in tunic-like boxy silhouettes.
Inspired by Romanian peasant blouses and dresses, the feminine smocked dresses, crafted from a range of fabrics, including cotton canvas, suede, chambray and denim, are embellished with embroideries, as well as paisley prints and ikat jacquards.
Wool flannel and vintage washed denim dresses, showing embroidered and multi studded plastrons, are cut in flared silhouettes referring Afghan Nuristan styles, while suede, leather and denim tops echo the shapes of Syrian tunics.
The Chinese and Vietnamese multicolor Hmong skirts are rendered in striped cotton canvas and denim patchworks, while denim pants are embellished with embroideries inspired by Syrian and Palestinian designs.
Tribal references also inform the accessories, spanning from laced-up shoes and boots echoing fringed mocassins to Santiago boots with Western buckles. Artisanal craftsmanship takes center stage in the bag and belt range, including styles featuring stitched leather and multi stud designs.
