After Nicola Formichetti’s initial successful capsule collection for Diesel he has gone and done it again with a collection of leather pieces and has also just announced a special collaboration with Selfridges Oxford St for a two week dedicated window display of the latest #DieselTribute Leather collection.
Formichetti set tongues wagging late last year when he released his first capsule collection for SS14, #DieselTribute was a small collection of all denim pieces perfectly showcased with a campaign shot entirely on iPhone in collaboration with Nick Knight and SHOWstudio. Now the Italian denim brand have revealed the release of #DieselTribute Leather, a collection of 11 pieces of apparel and and 5 accessories all painstakingly handmade in order to create individual pieces of fashion history. Tradition meets future in the collection which features jackets and dresses using leather patches from recycled Diesel jeans hand stitched like patchwork with such dedication, the jeans are covered in no less than 580 patches.
Given access to the inspiring and secretive Diesel archive in Breganze, Italy – Nicola reviewed thousands of Diesel legacy pieces. Which in turn birthed this incredible two-tiered capsule collection, perfectly demonstrating Diesel’s mastery of both Denim and Leather, a collection that tips its hat in reverence to the brand’s history.
To coincide with the line launching exclusively at Selfridges, Nicola has worked with infamous department store to create an exclusive window display for #DieselTribute Leather along with a pop up shop inside, both
