Diesel Black Gold’s Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Focuses On Contrasting Forces

Diesel Black Gold’s utilitarian, urban-chic pieces are back on track with the newly unveiled Diesel Black Gold spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear lineup, for which Norwegian designer Andreas Melbostad took more romantic vibes as the collection’s main motifs.

For this Milan Fashion Week, Melbostad let Diesel’s signature glam rock, suburban allure break free, not only to create solely bon-ton-inspired ensembles, but also to make it possible for both the styles to blend in together creating something completely new. Not for nothing, as stated in Diesel Black Gold’s official press note, dichotomy is at the core of this unexpectedly surprising spring/summer 2017 collection, and we feel like it won’t stop popping up as the lineup’s theme in the seasons to come.

“The dichotomy between fragility and strength, the contrasting forces behind toughness and tenderness, find a dynamic balance in the collection.”

Already dubbed “utilitarian romanticism”, the Diesel Black Gold spring 2017 collection is, in fact, a kind of revolutionized style for both Diesel and Melbostad, with the Norwegian designer often being more prone to experimenting with gender-fluid figures rather than conventionally feminine ones.

The collection is thus all about frilly, layered looks, with delicate miniskirts dominating the scene along with short shorts and crop tops. Apron frocks with scalloped lace embroideries and wrapped dress in bright white were the epitome of femininity, as their lines and cuts were tactically enhanced by Melbostad’s choice to pair them with the line-up’s utilitarian looks. As it often happens when it come to Melbostad, the latter were slightly athleisure-influenced, with the billowy trousers and trench coats in military green also conveying intriguing Nineties vibes.

While the urban-ready, military accents completed the collection with vintage touches, the more romantic looks directly drew inspiration from one of London’s most acclaimed and visionary photographers: David Hamilton.

For his Diesel Black Gold spring 2017 collection, Andreas Melbostad turned to the British artist to find the right, soft-focused inspiration he needed to create this 34-piece lineup. Like this Diesel Black Gold collection, Hamilton also made ample use of contrasting motifs, as his (often controversial) pictures translated many young girls’ femininity and softness to artistic eroticism.

Hammilton’s muses thus turned into Melbostad’s models, wearing suede fabrics, laced-up detailing, asymmetric closures and loads of ruffles that gave the overall runway show magical, romantic moments of wearable high fashion.

As for now, just by looking at this collection, we could fairly state that Andreas Melbostad has greatly accomplished his main goal of making this little sister of Diesel more prominent, as he skillfully managed to let Diesel Black Gold grow into an independent, fully fledged fashion line with its brand new aesthetics and fashion shows.
