Fashion is a universe of style on its own. Diesel continues to revisit its workwear roots with the SS’12 collection and resumes the preview collection’s style concept of clashing the opposing worlds of work and formal garments. This season the brand introduces welcome to Worksville, a utopia where dressy elegance is an expression of happiness, and hard labor is the ultimate leisure activity. The collection presents by contrast a clean and sharper deamnor in modern utilitarian feel. The look combines a feeling of tough functionality that's a little more dressed up. This summer a casual daywear wardrobe comprises of jackets, pants, light knits and shirts. Uniform and engineer outerwear are fused with formalwear details, such as double breasted lapels, worn out of context as dressy jackets and coveralls. While workwear pants and chinos are reinterpreted with contemporary carrot fits.
The collection adopts an inverse approach to treatments than usual.Dirty gets a clean look with a “bleached out” effect that adds to the lighter summer feel of the collection. Denims are pushed to the extreme in the “Light Exposure” 5-pockets denim offer, which are the purest examples of true Diesel DNA washes.The usage of classic workwear blue and white stripes and Prince of Wales check fabrics, typical of formal summer suits, is complemented with a color palette elucidated by light ecru, blue and pastel highlighted with contrasting indigo colors. A palette of sage green with off white gives an outdoors feel to lighter garments, including short chinos, polos and short sleeved shirts. Diesel's Worksville is all about living fashion in reality.
