A rugged Rockstar and a happy camper must seem like an unlikely duo, but Diesel manages to turn them into one convincing coupling. Grungy striped knits, black leather pieces laden with zippers, and sleeveless band-inspired hoodies get mixed and matched with camping gear of the coolest order – shearling-trimmed jackets and vintage-style plaid shirts.
Explaining the eclectic range, Diesel artistic director Nicola Formichetti says: “Our Fall/Winter 2017 collection is all about the energy of grunge and being in the forest at night time. We played on the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll as a nocturnal element and how being surrounded by nature after dark can be a strange and crazy experience.”
In line with the concept of mixing old and new, patches on classic military bombers and parkas have been taken from the Diesel archive, with symbols of the past reworked to pay tribute to brand’s heritage. And denim – the staple for both rockers and campers alike – gets blue as its key colour, with six new washes for men, and 11 for women.
