During the Spring 2011 runway shows, there were a lot of brighter colors, prints, pastels, and mix-matched textures. Diesel Black & Gold has always been known for their dark denim, but this time around they took a different route. Sophia Kokosalaki–creative director of the brand– explained, “We have a lot of blue denim in Diesel, so it’s not necessary to go down this way—everybody knows we have this” (Style.com). She always said the color palette they used were inspired by the desert. The wide variety of neutrals, soft greens, peaches, and browns complement each other very well. Their runway looks included a lot of denim of course, but instead they used lighter washes mixed with lighter colored jackets, and even leather pieces. Overall, the new Spring 2011 collection encompasses lighter hues that are more suitable for spring wear. Men, invest in lighter shades of denim like light gray, khaki, and olive green. Pair these jeans with colored leather jackets, henley tees, collared shirts, and vests for the layering technique. Make sure to keep the colors in the same color family.
