For the FW13 womenswear collection Diesel started from the basics. Recalling the most successful pieces of the past two years, Diesel enhances the bold femininity of its woman by adding unexpected new styles. Based on the same belief, “I am who I am”, this collection is stronger than ever: luxurious yet relaxed and full of innovative textures.
The first theme of the collection is “Wild Camou” and its signature colour is Brave Red, inspired by the classic Diesel logo of the ‘80s. Our camou print features jackets and dresses.
Look out for a new interpretation of the duffle coat in bright colours, where leather sleeves add contrast with a touch of Diesel DNA. Knitwear pants, dresses and super-stretch skirts undergo the same camou treatment, as well as the jacquard and over-dyed red faux fur jacket.
The wild camou total look in black and white, it’s definitely a must. Dresses and dark blue shirts add mixed tensile denim to this first theme.
The second inspiration is expressed in “crack-o-dile” textures. Shifting towards Winter touches of grey, black and pop purple shine through the entire collection. Black boiled wool jackets combine with leather black pants or wild camou denim. Purple stands out as a “must” colour used for knitwear and leather jackets in crack-o-dile texture.
Black and grey remain the trait d’union of the collection and are enhanced by brilliant green at times mixed with purple for a very rock yet unique effect. Tencel denim shirts dyed in dark blue with a spray treatment or proposed in mixed tencel with distinctive frontal pockets and western joke details.
In the 5 pocket section the leading concept is “Mutation”. It is all about denim changing its skin, using multiple layering technologies to colour and de-colour the material. Whether it’s laser print, faded colour treatment, new coating technique or new generation of fabrics, the expertise of Diesel has clearly been applied to this new evolution of denim.
Five new washes for the Skinzee model and a new low-waist version, the Skinzee Low, are also presented. Myboy is another new fit, slim with strong treatments, usually reserved to male garments. Winter makes its appearance with dark shades of grey and black, combined with indigo and coated washes. Our new textures, wild camou and crack-o-dile also make their way into the denim range.
In the bags and shoes collection the Diesel approach is expressed through the use of brave red and black colours embellished by bold studs. The spiciest graphic of the season is the leopard print available in red and dark grey nylon. Wild camou prints are also declined in sneakers, while the iconic blue denim fabric with studs is used for décolleté, wedges and sporty proposals. Unlikely to be forgotten is the boot offer giving the Diesel woman a rocker feeling. Treated suede half boots in different colour options and vintage “Chelsea” boots are essential elements of her wardrobe.
The collection captures the essence of the Diesel woman: brave, creative and always surprising.
