EAM FW 12 13 02
For Fall 2012 the menswear collections are just that: collections, incomplete less they come with a wide brimmed hat, coat, blazer, vest, bag or any one of the other covetable add-ons. Emporio Armani with their long silhouettes in dark palettes was only one of the brands to use the tactic.

For relaxed looks Giorgio sent down a number of simple long sleeved shirts over thinly proportioned trousers. Leather gloves, a necklace and a wide brimmed hat complete the look. The same leather, as well as a bit of sheepskin, was also used in half vests and full length trench coats. The lines of the collection call to discipline, causing silhouettes, though long enough only to flow, but never enough to be confused with a flutter.

For Fall/Winter 2012, Diesel Black Gold presented their very first exclusively menswear runway collection, and stayed true to its roots in providing us with a contemporary, “rocker chic” collection.

Black, was the predominant colour of the collection, with the occasional dash of colour, by way of a a deep plum velvet suit, pants or blazer or even a deep blue or indigo leather and fur coat. Thick, cable knit jerseys in burnt orange, deep indigo, and grey (some with brown leather or knitted sleeves) were also featured in the collection as well as simple black jerseys with textured sleeves and varied neck shapes.

Orange and black leather jackets and pants in black or brown leather created an effortlessly cool look. Three and two piece suits in brown and orange or navy and grey striped, denim blue, purple/grey and plum velvet created a sense of tailoring, but the choice of colour and fabric still kept the sense of edge Diesel Black are masters of.

Accessories were simple chains around the neck or attached to pockets, denim weekend bags and leather laptop bags. Boots in varying lengths in black or navy and zipper details on the jackets create a collection that can be expressive enough to express personal style.
