Even though London is half through its fashion week, Diesel Black Gold’s presentation in New York last week was one of the shows that would stick on the cornea. After last season’s departure of former head designer Sophia Kokolosaki, the successor Andreas Melbostad tried a slightly different direction to its characteristic rocker chic aesthetics.

For his debut collection, he stuck to the brands most significant feature of leather however, to create a silhouette based on how it makes its most flattering appearance on the models’ body. Long sleeved super short dresses, biker jackets with wool panels and fitted trousers. Nothing revolutionary to put in the pond, but the aim was rather to present a new structure to the brand with a more sleek and minimal approach. Everything went in neutral colours, mostly black but also lots of white and with military green as the prominent hue. What added a certain edge to the collection were the heavy spiked garments, constructed in such a manner you dont usually expect managing to stay on a fine line of being neither too much nor without meaning. Perhaps the whole purpose of structuring the brand was indeed to achieve a look that expresses control.
