Wednesday 21 September, Milan (Italy),12:30 p.m. Can we consider Glenn Martens, Diesel’s creative director, as the current king of denim fabrics? Yes, we can. Should we say that Diesel is at its best? We should and we must.
It is undeniable and totally appreciable by the senses the new and fresh vibe that the Belgian has brought to the emblematic brand founded by Renzo Rosso, who of course was at the show supporting and enjoying the triumphs they are currently reaping.
These triumphs were already more than official but were reaffirmed at the Allianz Cloud Arena, where the show was held in front of no less than almost 5000 spectators. All of them were part of all this and to see in first person the inflatable sculpture of the world, and we are not saying it but the Guinness World Records, because as soon as the show was over, it entered the famous book.
In that book, only the world records appear but some of the creations that Glenn presented could appear perfectly, since many of them are worthy of study, for example, the artisanal coat made with more than 15.000 distressed and brushed Diesel labels or the look nº 57. The denim goes to the next level and appears embroidered and sometimes even ripped almost to the point of breaking and with a faded/washed look. Jeans in denim, utility-style and some with XL pockets come into action, joining the shoes, in this case, western-style boots, and becoming a whole piece. Recall that this item was originally for women only, but this will no longer be the case as they are now available for men as well.
Cropped leather with raw edges, paired with scaled leather trousers and metal-toed western boots, also stepped onto the red and white catwalk to be worn with attitude and the brand’s iconic 1DR bags in different versions.
Sunglasses remarked Diesel’s Spring/Summer 23 collection and looks. All of them from this season are part of a unique collaboration with EssilorLuxottica, which will be launched exclusively through Diesel channels in February 2023.
