While the descriptors on the Diesel Black Gold Spring/Summer 2013 collection are superfluously dubious—”[the collection] evokes the futuristic and anachronistic Steampunk world of the 1980’s/early 1990’s, reinterpreting it with a fresh approach for todays’ men with a rock chic attitude”—these five looks are, well, pretty much that. They seem to exist in a grey moment between decades when things were allowed to look timeless rather than trendy.
How was that for hyperbole? Still, liking the trim fits and the muted, industrial color palette quite a bit. Good ideas edited well, though the leather blazer looks to be damaging that dude’s ribs. We are on-board, but if you ever hear us asking for “rock chic attitude” please take our temperature.
