I so missed the Diesel Black Gold – Fall/Winter 2014 Women’s Runway Show this time. It was below freezing and snow all over the streets and I just couldn’t make it in time. What a shame.
But here is a recap about the show and the Diesel Black Gold F/W ’14 collection:
A cosmos shimmering with unknown possibility, travel into space once beckoned the imagination of science and exploration. Astronauts were the pioneers of the next frontier. This romantic and optimistic view of space adventures influenced design and fantasy to create a bold new aesthetic.
Nostalgic ideas of futurism shape the Diesel Black Gold women’s fall winter 2014 collection. Melded with the realities of space travel, the look this season explores the tension between the past and the future to create a wardrobe built for survival against the elements.
Iconic elements from an astronaut’s suit are infused into parkas and hooded jackets constructed from leathers and cotton twill with Shearling linings. Pants are anatomically cut from leather, flannel and coated cotton with engineered seams to enhance the leg.
Key Diesel Black Gold DNA, denim and leather, are given futuristic treatments of filmy coatings and lacquered finishes. Glistening linear patterns are revealed on jeans.
Accessories accompany bold travelers through new frontiers: metal toecap flat boots with front zippers and multiple buckles and sleek metal trimmed pumps are crafted from box calf. Mirrored metal discs are appliqued to structured black bags that hang from the shoulder. Metal plaque belts anchor the hips.
The palette is contained in monochromatic colors and metallics: black, white, charcoal, silver and gunmetal.
