Glenn Martens continues to win over the masses with his new Diesel Pre-Fall 2023 collection. Denim is still king, but it is interspersed with camouflage, metallics and lots of leather.
Diesel, one of 2022’s hottest brands, has unveiled its Pre-Fall 2023 collection filled with denim, denim and more denim.
The range celebrates Diesel’s roots while presenting Glenn Martens’ new vision for the Italian label. Martens has said in a conversation with the press, “Our shows are more for people in the fashion industry, while with our pre-collections we try to speak to everyone; my brother, my mother, teenagers in high schools… everyone. So it is a very different exercise for me.” He continues, “It’s this breaking boundary, no bullshit attitude. Sexy and fun.”
This new Pre-Fall 2023 collection is all about pieces for “real, everyday fashion. It’s all about the garments that will go into our stores, with the cheekiness and the charm that’s totally Diesel. The pieces have their own personality – when you see them, you just know they are from our Diesel universe,” says Martens.
“Disruptive, democratic and representing the full scope of the Diesel universe, the Pre-Fall 2023 collection plays with themes of the down-to-earth and otherworldly”. – Diesel.
The collection kicks off with a skin-tight tee paired with baggy jeans, which are accessorized with the Diesel logo belt. More hints of denim are found on footwear, arriving in the form of heels. Elsewhere, Canadian tuxedos take centre stage with denim jackets, and oversized trousers, along with frayed denim caps and more.
Diesel’s signature logo is stamped onto tees and boxers, as well as zipper detailing on cropped bra tops. Maxi denim skirts — one of this season’s biggest trends — are styled with ’00s-style hoodies.
Aside from denim, the Diesel logo also is stamped in cut-out details on metallic tops, wrap skirts, and hooded maxi-length dresses. The 1DR bag is given a nano-sized makeover, accompanying an all-yellow look. Denim pieces are mixed and matched with knitwear items and wardrobe staples such as hoodies and sweat shorts. The collection also introduces motocross-inspired pieces, ranging from bomber jackets to cargo pants.
Double-wrapped grommet belts and grown-up versions of Hot-Topic’s punk-pop wares have also been introduced in the collection. Martens also accessorized low-slung, YK2-inspired midi skirts with low-slung skinny belts (more decorative than functional.)
