Sophia Kokosalaki wanted her spring collection to be all about light reflection and the dominant characteristic of the Diesel Black Gold spring 2012 collection presented at the New York Fashion Week, was metallic leather insertions.
The spring 2012 fashion trends vary widely, which translates into sporty elements, vintage classics as well as contemporary designs that can mold to suit women with different personalities.
Diesel Black Gold is known for creating wearable designs with a modern vibe, perfect for fashion-forward people who love to make a style statement. Luxurious-edgy could be the perfect word to describe this collection that mixes sporty with both masculine and feminine influences. Luxurious metallic leather featuring a simple texture or sizzling elements such as snakeskin or croc prints are toned down with soft fabrics in monochrome pieces for a very urban feel. Stylish dresses, chic leather pants, shiny blouses, masculine-inspired blazers, biker jackets featuring vivid metallic hues of green, silver and gold as well as monochrome mattes such as navy, pink, beige, white and blue are the main elements that capture attention from first glimpse, making sure the outfit will make the wearer turn heads.
