#FashionCrush: Diesel SS14 Resort Collection

And it’s Fashion Season again! YAY! I cannot wait for all of my favourite high street brands to share their new collections for Spring & Summer and just start thinking about what I will be rocking next season (oh and start saving as well!).

Here is a little look inside Diesel‘s latest collection which I’ve gotta say I LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I attended the Collection Preview event and felt completely madly in love with this beautiful ombre-style little bag :)

For this new collection, designer Andreas Melbostad continues his creative reinterpretation of the brand’s core values – edgy, rock chic and denim-inspired – sounds good to me!

The result is a smart (ie. me!)  approach to the summer holiday season, where lean and tailored silhouettes create a streamlined style, focusing on the classic DBG color palette: black, white, grey and olive. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Here are a few looks I might/will/of course I will be shopping for:

Love the ‘edgy’ take on the Power Suit! This one is such a ‘ME’ outfit… well it will be once I am through with my #VLOGFIT Challenge!

Monochrome is still in and Diesel has kind of added a geometric/tribal twist to it with this over-sized jumper which would be so perfect in Spring or, for those of us lucky to be based out in the warm Middle East, now!

Yep, it is ALL about the over-sized/slouchy jumper over a sleep pair of skinny jeans or, as in this look, leather shorts (please, only if you have the legs for it!). Khaki is back in da game.

The White Suit… again with a Diesel twist. I absolutely adore that structured take on the classic blazer…. a key piece this next season which can be worn casually over jeans or smart over tailored white pants/pencil skirt.

Some of these pieces have already hit our shores so be sure to check these out in stores or online!

Stay tuned for more (lots more) fashion updates in the next few weeks….

#FashionCrush: Diesel Fall/Winter 13-14 Collection

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.
