The Clothes: With sexy clothes in black and white, Diesel Black Gold riffed on its own signature style. Models trotted out in micro-minis with dangling ties flipping about and oversized treated leather jackets. The show opened with Maria Bradley in a comparatively demure white leather mini with a large belt, buttoned up white shirt, and long black jacket and closed with Julia Nobis in a white moto jacket, shirt, and skinny pants. In between, there were dresses with square cut outs, fold over trousers with neon accents, and sheer and leather dresses.
What the Line Sheet Said: "Urban skate parks, 90's fashion imagery, and the eclectic dress sense of creative city dwellers inspired Sophia Kokosalaki to design a collection that merges the adrenalin-driven world of skateboarding with the poise and sophistication of the contemporary art scene.
The Hair & Makeup: Side parted and pin straight hair paired with a glossy, nude face.
The Soundtrack: "Octopus" by Bloc Party.
The Vibe: Pier 57 was so dark, you could barely see your hand in front of your face. A skate ramp was set up behind the runway where four skater dudes in suits skated back and forth. The music during the show was so loud the bench beneath us shook.
