Diesel Black Gold certainly knows how to make a strong fashion statement and this year during New York Fashion Week, its Spring 2012 collection once again impressed and bewitched this time already with pops of colorful metallics combined with its characteristic neutral beige palette. The models walked down the catwalk, looking like they had just emerged from a reflecting pool with their sopping wet hair and liquid metallic outfits. Designed under the artistic direction of Sophia Kokosalaki, the latest Diesel Black Gold Spring 2012 fashion line definitely differed from many others with its shiny eggplant, green and navy colors, unique stark white basics, punctuated by molten silver and rose gold pieces.
Apparently Sophia Kokosalaki wanted her new collection for the upcoming warm season to be all about light reflection and she got this amazing effect by metallic leather insertions. For the spring 2012 fashion season, trends vary widely, concentrating mainly on sporty elements, vintage classics as well as contemporary designs that can appeal to women with different personalities. This spring expect lots of layering for those days, when you are not sure if it’s going to be 15 degrees or 30.
Diesel Black Gold has always been known for creating wearable designs with a modern vibe, becoming the perfect choice for fashion-forward people, who try to look stylish and unique. Luxurious-edgy is the most matching word to describe its latest collection for spring 2012 that skillfully manages to mix sporty with both masculine and feminine influences. It’s especially fantastic to see those metallics on metallics combos! Thanks to the varied textures and designs it’s quite easy to sport shine-on-shine outfits and get a super trendy look without appearing weird and trashy.
Described by clean and structured silhouettes, the collection features lots of luxurious metallic leather pieces with a simple texture or sizzling elements, such as snakeskin or croc prints toned down with soft fabrics in monochrome pieces for a very urban feel. Stylish dresses, chic leather pants, shiny blouses, masculine-inspired blazers, biker jackets, featuring vivid metallic hues of green, silver and gold as well as monochrome mattes such as navy, pink, beige, white and blue, are the main elements building up the dazzling Diesel Black Gold Spring 2012 collection. Just make this extraordinary fashion line your selection in the next season and get ready to shine on!
