Diesel Black Gold
January 10, 2012 New York
This season, Sophia Kokosalaki rolled out a grown-up collection that emphasized polished tailoring (think tweed trousers, crisp button-ups, and menswear-y belts) while maintaining the rock 'n' roll edge we've come to expect. Serious outerwear pieces served as the foundation. A utilitarian double-face wool overcoat, patent windbreaker, and oversize pebbled leather jacket were balanced by parachute silk dresses and other lightweight "wear it now" fare for those early deliveries. Treated denim, leather leggings, and motorcycle boots gave the proceedings a shot of brand identity. After a fun Spring show full of high-tech metallics and this tight pre-fall lineup, we're psyched to see what Diesel Black Gold has in store down the road.
