RUNWAY: Diesel Black Gold FW14Since ascending to the position of Creative Director of Diesel Black Gold, Andreas Melbostad has infused new life into this often-times neglected sibling of Diesel because of its higher prices and confusion among general consumers over the difference between Diesel's various lines. That may soon change as Pitti Immagine Uomo invited Diesel Black Gold to be its guest designer during the FW14 tradeshows.
Melbostad showed what he had to offer today in Florence and the result was all about the rockstar. Not any one in particular but more about the rockstar inside us all. From the opening look on Guerrino Santulliana, it was evident that this show would be all about leather, metal, and most of all, attitude. Fur line coats were plentiful and something that was often seen during LCM while slim and plasticized pants invoked a punk feel. In all, the collection was a fast paced look at what the new creative director will offer: clothes with plenty of attitude.
