Diesel Black Gold
May 29, 2014 New York
Another fashion perennial he tapped into this season: rockabilly. It came through in twisted Hawaiian print shirts with contrasting yokes and razor-sharp pinstriped jackets and stovepipe pants. They added a slightly dandified, somewhat more dressed-up new dimension to the label's current profile. A neoprene-bodice Hawaiian-print slipdress was almost sweet. But denim and leather remain the focal point of this brand, a point that came across in the diverse ways Melbostad treated denim. Indigo jeans dyed a deep red were subtle and cool, but the best was a pair of red denim cigarette jeans covered in messy stripes of waxy black paint. They looked utterly badass accompanied by a black tuxedo jacket with a built-in pocket chain.
