Tippex sharp

Two seasons into his reign over menswear at Diesel Black Gold, Andreas Melbostad continues to make it crystal clear that the brand’s vision should be exactly that.

This means total clarity of design, assisted by total understanding of the brand itself. That Melbostad designed the womenswear collection prior to his current appointment is hence quite significant. 

There it was in every look, the designer’s knowledge translated via the sharper, smokier silhouette he’s crafting for Diesel Black Gold. It’s also consistent in its slick rock ‘n’ roll edge. Cuts were slim in line with what we saw last season, jackets smooth around the waist and shoulders blade sharp.

Moto jackets were authentic and street ready, a fiery red logo-patched number only topped by the graffitied scrawls seen on another, tippexed in silver. If you’re in the market, keep an eye on them both. They’re so slick they’re slip themselves out the door before you can even put aside next month’s rent.
