Diesel have been trying to move its premium Black Gold label away from the brand's denim roots for seasons. But for some reason past themes kept on revisiting cowgirls and as you well know, where you find a western, you'll find a well of denim too.
With Sofia Kokosalaki's fifth collection for the label, they've finally done it. This was a show that managed to make you forget about the jeans and look at some lovely ideas and combinations instead.
Suede tailored blazers mixed with silver perforated leather tees, waffle sweaters worn over metallic minis with shirt-tails hanging below and shattered glass-effect leather. There was denim of course, but it was so heavily shined you'd believe it was leather. It was industrial and urban without putting of its fans.
