Denim, leather and military, the foundation of Diesel that fuel its creative DNA, define Diesel’s Fall Winter 2014 men’s and women’s collections. Inspired by contemporary and natural worlds, artistic director Nicola Formichetti edges the brand’s core aesthetics into new ground for a lineup of formidable yet wearable clothes created with Diesel’s unmistakable signature
“This season I wanted to explore the other side of Diesel, which is fun loving, and a little bit ironic – it’s very free spirited. I was imagining who we are: urban nomads who travel around the world, and go to different music festivals like Coachella and Glstonbury,” Formichetti said.
Denim, Diesels genetic code, is produced with an artisanal, 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.
I love everything about Diesel’s FW 2014 collection, it’s just like Formichetti said, it’s fun, loving, freeing and urban. I’m especially loving their denim range particularly their boyfriend jeans. I picked up a pair of Diesel Fayza boyfriend jeans as seen in my look today and styled it in a very chic, sporty, urban way.
These jeans are one of those pieces that definitely get better with age and has been designed with the purpose of longevity. There are so many fun and creative ways of styling a pair of jeans likes these which I will be showing you over the next couple of months, so watch this space.
