Diesel Black Gold

When Diesel created the Black Gold line they wanted to unite high end fashion and ready to wear. The result? Exactly that. Silky fabric and beaded details with grey denim for fall. Sexy and sophisticated yet rock. The men's collection had lots of layers (loose, grey tank tops over button ups, cardigans, vests). My favorite look had elements of both grunge and Jim Morisson: a baggy grey knit sweater with a zipper on the collar and leather pants. Grunge with a modern twist.



When it comes to wearing blue with denim, I can be a bit hesitant. Here in Diesel's Spring 2009 collection they perfected the look. I love the loose, bohemian feel of the tops paired with the jeans. And a waistcoat with a tank top had never been more rock n' roll. Rugged ankle boots, which are also in APC, Isabel Marant and PRPS collections, are here as well in natural leather and suede tones. As my regular readers know, I would love rock the men's collection as well as the women's.These are clothes I could see myself throwing in a suitcase and driving off on an adventure with. I can already picture my own jewelry, sweaters and shoes with them...








I think Black Gold is an appropriate name for this Diesel line. It's smooth, shiny, worth quite alot and dirty too.

I like the styling of the men’s stuff, especially in the 3rd picture.
I like the 7th look. The tattered jeans and the lt blue long sleeve top with grey boots is interesting. And in 11, I would like to see a closeup of that jacket.

I love the man bag. Not many men have the confidence to wear one , even though they look so good for fear of being branded as gay. Hopefully this collection will help them realize your not gay if you carry a bag in your hand.
