Diesel Black Gold A/W 2017
Scene setting: Held in the same vast warehouse space as the brand’s menswear show in January, its womenswear offering was presented against the same industrial backdrop. A wall of orange metal shelving lined the length of the space, which used to be a factory for manufacturing mechanical parts, as models stormed the huge runway, lit up by diagonal beams of light.
Mood board: Andreas Melbostad’s nostalgic collection nodded to the nineties, with long silhouettes like column skirts, cardigans and dresses imagined in suede, cord, denim and leather. Pieces came buttoned-up or buckled and grungy layering was key, with a long leather skirt layered over wide pinstripe trousers, an indigo denim dungaree dress layered with a polo neck and flowing scarf, and a suede button up dress paired with a ribbed column versions, in the same shade of camel.
Best in show: A khaki nylon bomber jacket came cropped with epaulets, pocket details and a cinching drawstring waist, while a more demure Prince of Wales check coat featured a cosy ribbed collar and sleeves.
