Diesel Black Gold FW14

The women’s collection lays the foundations of a new aesthetic ideal, with designs that draw inspiration from space adventures in their mythic aspect.
The items are characterized by texture plays in which lacquered, plated and metallic surfaces are coupled with classic and traditional materials; the features are even more marked in the jackets with their iconic space suit elements. Leather, flannel and coated cotton trousers come in cuts that enhance the silhouettes, whereas the tops, the bustiers, the pleated skirts and the sheath dresses come in neoprene, cady and jersey. With the addition of studs and zippers, the items are reminiscent of futuristic coats of arms that the pleating makes gentler.
