#DIESELVENICE by Nicola Formichetti

 #DIESELVENICE FW 2014

 

 

Thursday April 3rd Nicola Formichetti’s first show for Diesel at

Arsenale in Venice. Rock and roll black leather, Denim and Utility

are the three iconic items of the brand’s heritage. On the backdrop

digital photographer Nick Knight screened a video with dancers 

including choreographer and Royal Ballet’s dancer Ivan Putrob. 

Brooke Candy end up with her latest single Opulence’s performance.

 

  

 

 

“Nineties, London, the craziest stores in Covent Garden – I would just go to the store

and see all the crazy people working there – the actors, the DJs,” said Formichetti,

 asked to explain his motives in taking the brand truly back to its roots: denim,leather

and military referencing all styled up into street gangs and fashion tribes.“I just think

I get really inspired by people, cool people, and I just like to mimic them,” he said,

likening the 100 looks he sent out to an A-to-Z of styling.“So we had the new wave kids,

the early Nineties, the sexy kids with the tattoos and we had the posh kids – all the

different types. You saw all of those different coloured skins and hair colours; tall,

short, curvy – and it was great because when you go outside that’s how everyone is,

it’s global what we live in so I just wanted to push it.Sometimes when you go to a

fashion show it’s all just one line of the same and that’s a bit boring,” he elaborated. 

“I have a really close relationship with Renzo Rosso, the founder, and that’s the

key. We’re so close and this year he has injected me with the DNA of Diesel and

now he’s like: ‘You have to take care, you have to have to take over for the next 35

years’,” continued Formichetti after the show, looking clearly contented and at ease

with his new role. “I’m not trying to do anything or become anything he said.

 Formichetti also took it as an opportunity to introduce us to his latest performer

collaborator and muse, singer Brooke Candy.“I love her. I predict she’s going

to be huge, so amazing, so cool. I feel that excitement when I first met Gaga, she has

that possibility and this excitement with what you can do with her and where she can

go. I don’t think they’re similar but you know they have that

energy – uber humans, aliens,” he said.
