Metallic mirrors

On 13 September 2011, the Italian denim label Diesel presented the new men's and women's wear spring/summer 2012 Diesel Black Gold collection during New York Fashion Week.

It's the 4th time that fashion designer Sofia Kokosalaki and her team created the look of the elegant-experimental Diesel Black Gold collection.

fig. original: The basic style of the Black Gold collection is denim - but without showing 'denim'. Diesel mirrors the 'denim-lifestyle' into couture pieces such as the raw leather-alike dress with a body-tailored-chrome application that reflects the surrounding, or trousers in jeans pattern with glamorous metallic surface.

The video in documentary style is directed by photographer, film maker Damien Neva. More Damien Neva-videos with statements from models about their work and backstage impressions from
the spring/summer 2012 catwalks in New York (Marc Jacobs, Diane von Fürstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Alexander Wang...) are published on
