After releasing Spring—a motocross, extreme sport and retro video game-inspired collection—Diesel
looks to Tokyo, Japan as its main influence for its Summer drop. Tokyo has long been central to
Diesel’s aesthetic direction and overall inspiration.
Additionally, Summer’s look draws cues from rockabilly culture, and sets the look on the street-style
packed neighborhoods of Shibuya and Shinjuku. It is a bold collection, where denim, leather and
souvenir jackets are the key components. Additionally: embroidered tops and jolts of color combined
with black and gray all mix together for a defiant, wild-child appeal.
Oversized silhouettes are a defining shape for Summer, and essential pieces come in XL denim cuts,
frayed or grommet-studded leather, and as jackets with novel souvenir decorating.
Chain jewelry shines against leather, bits of neon strobe against tees and tear-away tops, and striking
sneakers are ready to hit the block. The main pattern draws inspiration from Western bandanas—it
appears on skirts, shorts and shirts.
This is a fearless interpretation of summer for 2019—and one that speeds from the racecourse to the
rock stage. It’s time to scream at the top of your lungs and party onward—and give new meaning to the
term “dancing in the streets.”

Top model Kate Moss is always Stella’s best friend. And it is very surprising to see Kaia Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s daughter) in Stella McCartney Summer 2019 ad campaign~ Encapsulating the laid-back attitude of the Stella McCartney woman, the new campaign images features Kaia in a tie dye organic denim jumpsuit and while in another image Kate is clad in a pure white organic cotton jumpsuit. Both are shot amidst a dirty pastel or washed out neon backdrop that echo the palette and the sense of strength and softness of the new collection. Stella’s signature play on masculine and feminine designs for summer 2019 are updated in relaxed pastel tailoring borrowed from the boys on Gerber and a weightless glittering lurex dress made of sustainable viscose on Moss, both paired with nude coloured ballet flats featured on the runway. Highlighted in the new campaign is the designer’s new organic cotton canvas Stella logo monogram cluster bags made for every eventuality in both mini and maxi sizes; round flap bags, back packs, totes and Falabella shapes, as well as the updated version of the pumped up Eclypse sneaker in this season’s colours. ]]>
Symbols acquire new meaing and multicultural elements come to life in the urban atmosphere of a Berlin square, a space on the border between reality and the imagination. The Autumn/Winter 2017-2018 Women’s and Men’s collections, presented through Juergen Teller’s photographs, combine different prints and fabrics as an explosion of colour and patterns.
This season, the ETRO woman wears oversized outerwear and dresses with Paisley and flower patterns, rich in details with colourful ribbons and hems.
Accessories strike a balance between folk and urban style. ETRO’s Rainbow Colour Bag is the protagonist of the season, celebrating the power of colour through a combination of creative geometric patchwork, inspired by the Himalayas.
The Men’s collection presents sophisticated suits, made from superlight and uniquely tactile tartan fabrics. Iconic elements are combined with contemporary details, utilizing the entire spectrum and shades of blue.

Swiss luxury brand Bally will be present at Pitti Uomo for the first time this June, launching its Spring Summer ’18 retro sneaker collection.
Bringing back the magic with the revival of its best sneaker styles over the past decades, Bally’s retro sneaker collection includes four replications of its most successful lace ups, from hip-hop era classics to smashing tennis shoes and sporty runners.
Bally Sneakers rose to recognition in the mid-1980s among rappers on the hip-hop scene. Doug E. Fresh wore a pair on his 1986 album cover Oh, My God!, and long before musicians were calling out other sneaker brands in their lyrics, Slick Rick shouts out he’s wearing ‘Bally shoes and fly green socks’. One of the four styles that have been replicated, the Competition has been produced with the same shape, lining and sole as the original shoe from the 80s. The replica will be presented alongside four additional derivations, exclusively for Pitti Uomo, in Kodak, garnet, marine and snuff.
Sport shoes were a big part of Bally’s DNA as far back as the 1960s when the brand launched its Super Smash series of tennis shoes. Reissued with a vulcanised sole and the same Bally logo on the side, the canvas shoes are available as replicas as well as three new derivations, in both hi and low top styles, and as full leather versions.
Bally’s Galaxy runner, a shoe originally created for utility in 1988, has also been reissued and is now Bally’s lightest sneaker, crafted in canvas with suede detail. The original model in garnet has been reproduced alongside two new versions in Kodak and black, with the original running sole.
The 1974 Vita-Parcours completes the collection, with original identifiable black and white check pattern and produced with a modernised sneaker sole, used in Bally’s Heimberg collection. A more urban shoe, the sneaker comes in its original form and three additional fabrications for men.
Bally’s retro sneaker collection is available in stores and online from January 2018 onwards.
