Heavy Metals At Diesel Black Gold

Sep 13, 2011 By Amy

With a silver oversized computer chip-like invitation in hand, I was off to the Diesel Black Gold show this afternoon at Pier 94. Each season I never know what to expect from the trendsetting utilitarian line. If the mirrors at the start of the runway were any indication, then I knew there was something sparkly waiting ahead.

The venue’s large open space was soon filled with fashion forward guests including Anna Dello Russo, Carine Roitfeld, the youthful Julia Restoin Roitfeld, and Franca Sozzani. Bloggers Bryan Boy and Susie Bubble were spotted and of course Rumi Neely wasn’t too far behind. A few minutes prior to the show’s commencement, Gerard Butler was escorted from backstage and the photogs (and females) went crazy.

Once the show commenced thunderous beats turned eyes to the catwalk where heavy metal metallics were all the rage. Arising from backstage silver metallics were taking over; the men’s and women’s looks we’re so bold they couldn’t be ignored. A plethora of silver metallic pieces were followed by pink and forest green reflecting garments. The detailing was a real stand out, as were the shoes which brought the metallic trend to the toes.Like shards of glass coming at you, each new ensemble was breathtaking and inspiring– which is exactly what the collection intended to do.

“As the world becomes increasingly complex, Diesel Black Gold’s new collection proposes light and reason. Fashion becomes utilitarian and optimistic. Instead of looking inward, it sets out to explore.” said the brand.

Models Erjona Ala, Karmen Pedaru, Maryna Linchuk, and Kate King were glistening in the metallic clothing. Their natural hair and makeup looks were done by industry dream team, makeup artist Pat McGrath and hair stylist extraordinaire Guido Paulo.

Thanks to Diesel, I’m ready to get my shine on!
