Milan, June 28, 2012 – Last week, Diesel Black Gold presented their latest anarchist inspired collection. For Spring/Summer 2013 military tailoring combines with mechanical references working together to create a strong offering. Made popular in the 1980’s and early 1990’s, Steampunk incorporates elements of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, and horror. DBG has represented this in strong technological and functional elements throughout such as jewellery buttons, metallic lace eyewear, bold zips, mechanical flowers, and embroidering in its suits and shirts.
Leather combines with suede, satin with Japanese microfibre, jacquard with rib, cool wool with leather, emphasized with technical and rich details to create a 3D effect bringing the collection to life. DBG always tinkers with its denim and SS13 is no exception. Denim is burned by laser, artfully distressed and artisanal engineered at the same time.
Loving the bold palette, especially the electric blue and mustard yellows and the incredible dandified looks towards the end of the show.
