In true NYFW style a West Side warehouse was transformed into an urban cool show space for the Diesel Black Gold AW11 presentation. Sophia Kokosalaki’s third season with the brand brought luxe leathers in rich hues and precious pieces that would pull at a Dickensian heartstring while staying utterly modern.
Leather trousers were the staple piece in the collection and given every treatment. Whether distressed, rubbed to a brilliant shine or snakeskin effect they were superbly styled with heavy weight woollens or a repeat of last season’s essential shearling.
There to witness the show and sitting front row were Wyclef Jean, Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford and Boardwalk Empire’s Paz de la Huerta, who’s been making her style mark at NYFW.
High School Musical honey Vanessa Hudgens was also spotted rocking an edgier look than we’re used to in a thigh-skimming leather mini.
Our Man In Style Jaye Thompson was there too. Take a peek at his blog for all the front row gossip.
