Diesel Red Tag Collection A Letdown ?

Fashion experts talk about the need to be cautious while using a double denim combination dress so that it carries well. The duo combination should have the right contrast colors, differential washes , correct patterns and so on. But not many experts might have expressed opinions about a triple or a quadruple, quintuple, sextuple denim (!!!)  and they might be somewhat lost if they had to do it. What if the top, bottom , belts shoes , caps , ties, scarves etc all are made in denim . What do you call such a dress combination ?

Well, Diesel’s latest collection -the much awaited Red Tag Project has been finally launched  at the Paris Fashion Week recently – and it leaves one wondering whether they are characters out of Harry Potter movie completely dressed in denim ! The collection is totally at odds with traditional DIESEL designs and brings a new take to its designs. Designer Shyane Oliver was behind this conceptual collection and it has started creating buzz after its launch and being labeled as ‘ cool high-end contemporary casual’ by many fashion experts.Oliver is the first designer in a three-part series of collections to be made in collaboration with Diesel. The pieces in the collection included washed oversize denim jacket , skinny jeans reconstructed from a classic jeans jacket, slouchy logo thigh-highs, and a dramatic maxi dress .

The collection revolves around four designs , named on four major global fashion cities- LONDON , NEW YORK, MILANO, and PARIS. The names of cities have been allotted to different categories according to their traditional Western clothing influence over the respective looks. The LONDON and NEW YORK designs are GENDERFREE and can be worn easily by both sexes. Some of the queer touches which also seem interesting include the zippered hems (very strange !) , inverted knee pockets ! The collection seems to reinterpret the DIESEL signature looks and do not seem to have any of the outstanding elements that used to signify the brand . The images below speak for themselves.
