For the Diesel’s Resort 2023 collection, Glenn Martens expanded the recently-launched Diesel Rehab Denim capsule. This capsule is made from denim off-cuts, recycled cotton, and recycled elastane. Martens transformed the recycling into pieces including the season’s decadently pocketed utility pants and padded jackets. He added that a for-now exclusively Italian pilot scheme to buy-back and repurpose vintage Diesel through resale or upcycling is showing promising results.

This responsible practice lends Martens Diesel ample clear-of-conscience wiggle room to play around with the brand’s ethos, which he said is: “to have fun, enjoy life, and be successful in every situation that you are in.”

Highlights for sybarites included trompe-l’oeil cut jeans for women and men, ornamentally utilitarian pieces, acres of (sustainable) distressed and sometimes-waterproofed denim, retro-futuristic and logo-heavy clingy metallic knit dresses, gothically scripted skintight moto wear, and a surprising diversion into tailoring. “

“It’s not real tailoring—there’s no camel hair,” said Martens of the jackets, coats, and pants that play blue denim against a charcoal wool-mix.

The first drop of this collection is timed for Christmas. With Martens at the helm, Diesel has in short order pretty much defined its new manifesto of sustainable semi-seditious sexiness.

You can shop for the current Diesel collection at SSENSE women, men, CETTIRE, and at Neiman Marcus (men).
