Style 101 from Diesel’s SS19 Preview Collection
Diesel’s Pre-Spring 2019 collection, the afterparty is transitioning to dawn, and moving east to the enduring, hedonistic and 24/7 playground of Berlin, Germany. The very spirit of the German capital—and all of its revelry and riotousness—matches the spirit of the Pre-Spring lineup.
There’s a strong focus on graphic elements for both men and women, the most iconic of which is a text motif that reads “AESTHETIC.” This theme is often paired with a digitized female silhouette recalling a classic statue. The overall effect is very techno after – after hours’ club (the sort of place where they keep the curtains closed, even if there’s full daylight outside).
There’s a sportier vibe apparent but done in a grungier, more tiered way — fabrics are more precious and elevated, but, together, there’s a sense of motion and leanness.
Women’s standout pieces include: crop sweats and dresses, and t -shirts with slits on both the sides and the sleeves (these will all feature Diesel’s Denim Division logo); each is designed for peeling off or throwing on, and optimized for layering through the transition.
There are, additionally, leather jackets with metallic treatments, bleached outsized shirts, and embroidered bomber jackets. The complete women’s wardrobe is one of distinct mixed – and – matched edginess, packed with a put – together but freewheeling attitude.
Menswear features oversized denim jackets, iterations of a logo – treated satin coach jacket, sweaters and t-shirts featuring bold prints. Speaking of denim: The Diesel hallmark gets an update this season, with bleached effects, vintage treatments, lighter dyes, and another round of new styles (there are, in total, 6 new denim styles for both men and women combined).
In the accessories arena, there’s a new expansion of the women’s “West” range, which sees
knee-high boots in coated denim, as well as the all new “Scirocco” group, which is comprised of a hybridized sneaker – platform shape. Men will also have new shoe options: Vaiont, a dressy, chunky model with a double outsole in multiple materials , and Padola, a sneaker realized with technical materials and details. Colourful caps and oversized bags complete the accessory field.
The takeaway: the party doesn’t have to end just because winter is fading.
