Diesel Black Gold | Fall Winter 2018/2019 Full Fashion Show | Exclusive
Diesel Black Gold Resort 2019 Collection
Norwegian fashion designer Andreas Melbostad definitely loves to always surprise us with completely new designs, while also reinventing the classics, and his latestDiesel Black Gold resort 2019 collectionis here to prove us anything can be deconstructed and then re-constructed in a new, unconventional way.
For this resort 2019 line-up, Melbostad specifically focused on Diesel’s iconic hallmarks, such as leather jackets and glam-rock skirts, just to re-fabricate and modernize them, adding an overall conceptual haute couture look that will be much appreciated during this artistic and inspirational summer. Diesel’s street-style attitude is, of course, still visible throughout the collection, yet this time around it goes hand in hand with some of the most acclaimed Scandinavian silhouettes and minimalistic traditions.
“I’m reconstructing, re-fabricating, reconditioning its iconic staples,” Melbostad told . “Every season we work around a new generation of hybrids, playing with our streetwear roots and giving them a contemporary allure.” And for this specific resort collection, Melbostad took Diesel to the Nineties, alternating hard-rock references with a solid, nostalgic grunge style that has been intertwined with haute couture fashion since Nirvana’s first album debut.
The label’s signature utilitarian feel can be easily spotted too, especially among the cozy shirt-dresses, athleisure trousers and, of course, neoprene jackets. Those who were teenagers during the Nineties will surely rejoice as soon as they approach the billowy, wide-legged white trousers.
Except for these and other rare white proposals, the Diesel Black Gold cruise 2019 collection almost solely features black and grey colors, which go along with the lookbook’s settings pretty well featuring an old warehouse in the Milanese suburbs. Both the backgrounds and the model’s attitudes contribute to enhancing the silhouettes, which either drop down the waists, or focus on the shoulders baring them. Rompers and miniskirts accentuate the legs, while glam-rock zipped crop-tops bare the bellies along with some strong ‘girl power’ vibes.
Hybrids between a parka and a bomber reinforce the whole ‘subcultures in the Nineties’ concept, while puffed-up boleros and boyfriend jeans recall the Nineties androgynous wave. That does not, however, mean Melbostad doesn’t like ladylike-inspired pieces: as proven by the presence of the dramatic asymmetrical off-the-shoulder proposals, he likes to showcase femininity in his own, unconventional and self-confident way. Unconventionally suburban are also the collection’s gladiator boots, which along with biker-jacket-turned-bustier ensembles lessen the distances between nowadays fashion and the non-so-distant future.
“Hybrid constructions take center stage in the men’s collection. Bomber and denim jackets, as well as shirts and parkas, are combined for new outerwear designs;” explained the designer in a press release.
To top it all off, Melbostad teased us with intricately embroidered scorpions on many designs, hinting that Diesel isn’t afraid of changing and exploring new, wild territories. “Here at Diesel we like a bit of danger,” he cryptically stated backstage.
