Diesel Black Gold Runway Show F/W 2013  DBG FW13

There can’t be a complete FWNY (Fashion Week New York) without the traditional DBG runway show! For me, every season this is the high point of the week. DBG was showing an amazing collection, all in black and white, heavily studded leathers and jeans, studded skirts and dresses and coats. Zippers and detailed stitching everywhere. Studs on top of studs and zippers – you got the idea, right!

I took some more detailed pictures backstage, and I especially want to point out the new style that called my attention: instead of skinny ankle zipper jeans and leather pants, most of the styles are kind of a micro flare with ankle zipper (see detailed image below). Definitely helps to make you look taller and slimmer when paired with your stilettos or booties.

About this collection:

“With velocity as a core theme, the clothes are tailored closely to create an aerodynamic and anatomical silhouette. Diesel Black Gold’s irreverence and rock chic run through pieces whose streamlined lines suggest craftsmanship, textures research and finishes.

A leather and waxed cotton hybrid motor jacket and coat, drawing inspiration from iconic motoring garments and collaging them together. Structured shoulders, lean fit, belted and pocketed, with zipper, buckle and snap closures. The leather sleeves and shoulder have quilted details with leather, used to bind, trim and finish the garment.

Engineered biker pants are lean and fitted, anatomically seamed to sculpt and articulate movement. Multiple fabrications, combinations and finishes: raw or treated denim, wool flannel, leather and waxed cotton.

A tailored hybrid jacket cuts denim and leather into wool. Lean shape with leather biker shoulder and sleeves and quilted zipper and snap details. The torso is pocketed and stitched in raw denim merged with grey wool mélange flannel.

The tailored racer jacket in military green wool is coated with a black leather finish. An essential jeans jacket juxtaposed with the sophistication of black corded lace. Leather biker dress encrusted with metal studs.”

”I want to capture a variety of materials and designs within one singular look”, says DBG brand new designer, Andreas Melbostad. ”Above all, I want to create a collection for the strong, confident and sexy new Diesel Black Gold woman.”

Kudos to Andreas Melbostad for creating clothes that are not only extremely extravagant and special, but also totally wearable.
