The label opened Milan Fashion Week Men's beautifully on Friday, with a film revealing a collection that is simultaneously minimalist and hyper-sophisticated, with pieces that can be easily mixed and matched.
The almost fully virtual fashion week runs until Tuesday, with only Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Etro hosting physical shows. Highlights include the first collection by Glenn Martens for Diesel and eight new labels.
The Milan fashion and accessories show will return in phygital format with the WSM event on June 19-21, and is set to welcome back its participants in person on September 23-26 in the city’s Tortona Fashion District.
The next men's fashion season has been confirmed. The London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks will take place from 12 to 27 June, while Pitti Uomo will return with a physical event scheduled to run 30 June to 2 July.
The first Diesel runway under the creative direction of Glenn Martens will take place during Milan Fashion Week, on 21 June. The brand's collection for Spring/Summer 2022 will include pieces for both men and women.
On Sunday, Dsquared2, Fila and Emilio Pucci injected a dose of cheerful energy into Milan Fashion Week with their riotous presentations, showcasing sophisticated collections liberally sprinkled with sporty notes.
There are two opposing camps this season in fashion. One sees women post-lockdown refusing to sacrifice comfort for future; the other, led by Dolce & Gabbana, insists women are desperate for a night on the dancefloor.
