New York: Diesel Black Gold is continually proving to be the go to brand for assessable urban cool. This season, designer Andreas Melbostad looked to the photographs of Peter Lindbergh for inspiration, lending the collection a “tough girl” 90’s aesthetic. “I love Lindbergh’s kind of raw beauty, and the masculine-feminine aspect of it.” he explained. Androgynous references became immediately apparent; the models hair cropped and slick-wearing blazers borrowed from the boys, paired with mini hemlines in chunky knits trimmed with delicate lace. The proportions of the collection were faultless – biker jackets came either cropped and boxy or cut generously in luscious suede with asymmetric fastenings offering endless styling options. Bang on trend- Melbostad opted for an all-black pallet, playing with proportion and trimmings instead to tell his story; Industrial fastenings and parachute straps were used to add definition to waistline or simply as embellishment – refreshing the labels usual choice of studs and rivets. Edgy, sexy and eternally cool. – Anna Ross
