Renzo Rosso, president of Diesel has tapped Greek born British designer Sophia Kokosalaki to help re-develop and re-launch Diesel Black Gold’s women’s line. Black Gold is Diesel’s high-end contemporary line, and Kokosalaki is being brought in to overhaul the line — which will not show at this week’s Spring 2010 collection at New York Fashion Week. They will relaunch their Fall 2010 collection next February. Kokosalaki is known for always wearing black and denim herself, and Diesel chairman Renzo Rosso has full faith in her “incredible” talent and “skill in dealing with denim and contemporary casual, the core of Diesel Black Gold.” Though we will miss Diesel Black Gold at Fashion Week, we can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
