Fashion Week: Diesel Black Gold

The Diesel Black Gold show was set in an industrial warehouse space where the utilitarian, androgynous style of the collection mirrored it’s rugged environment. The denim experts branched out into a new direction with rich colors and metallic material that proved to be a unique interpretation of urban wear with “a collection that proposes light and reason.” Menswear inspired looks with sparkly details and strappy wedges created the perfect balance between femininity and masculinity.

Standout trend: Deep emerald green metallic moto jacket; paired perfectly with a striped button up and dress shorts.

How to get the look: To achieve the androgynous “I could care less look” don’t bother blowdrying your hair. Instead, towel dry it and apply mouse by scrunching with your fingers; remember how to scrunch? Especially apply mouse to the roots where you want to create a little bit of volume and shape. Then, carelessly tie back into a ponytail or loose bun. The trick to this look is applying just the right amount of makeup to look doll faced and fresh, but not overdone. Bronzed cheeks with highlighted cheekbones, with all over eyeliner and light shadow does the trick. A brown based eye palette works best to shade the shape of your eye while mascara and nude lipstick finish off the look.

Who makes it work: The city chic with an “I just rolled out of bed and still look cooler than you” attitude…and yeah, this is your boyfriend’s shirt.
