The Show: Diesel Black Gold Spring 2013
The Theme: Sophia Kokosalaki opens the show with a skate park setting backdrop as the theme of this season’s collection with a metropolitan skate park, ’90s fashion imagery and the eclectic style sense of creative city dwellers. She merged the youthfulness of the adrenaline-driven sports world with the luxury and sophistication of the contemporary art scene.
The Color Palette: Black and white with subtle hints of color. Prints inspired by street art and parks graffiti.
Best / Collection’s Signature Standout Look: Dressed in butter-soft leather, bonded fabrics and treated denim, the women wore sharply tailored jackets with pants as well as tightly fitted skirts. The edgy pieces were tempered by a feminine sensibility such as transparent mesh laid onto the dresses for revealing peek-a-boo details, as well as some fringe and braided accents.
