The Diesel F/W 2014 Women’s Lookbook focuses on denim, Diesel’s genetic code. It is produced with an artisan, couture hand. Designs are matched with treatment innovation. Scored and ripped all the way down the leg, and re-patched, a pair of over washed jeans “look a hundred years old and will last another 100 years,” Formichetti says. Dirty denim, staining on jackets and jeans that look like they have absorbed the natural hues of earth, further soften washed designs. Rain Block denim is completely waterproof denim in a jacket and pants. A new skinny jean features ergonomic seams in compact high stretch denim that flatters and adheres to the leg. Denim jackets, shirts and shirt dresses are destroyed, crumpled or spot-washed, so that fade marks give the fabric a lived-in appearance and comfortable feel. For the black carpet, denim is cut in a tuxedo jacket and with black lace for a dress.
