You are back showing in Milan, how does it feel like to be back?
It is our first women’s show and it feels good to be back. We have showed in New York for a long time, which has been a great experience, but it felt like a natural moment to come back after creating a voice in New York. Milan has a lot of energy and gives the brand another very international and important voice in terms of the press. It gives us a different focus working from home in terms of the company and for the show – we can put our full attention to the show and production, when being in Milan.
What does the Diesel girl look like?
For me, (red. Andreas Melbostad) it is very much about attitude, and the idea of self-awareness and a way of confidence. I like to create a wardrobe that has the possibility for girls to self-express and make them feel empowered. I hope that today’s show felt empowered with an emotion to it. It is important for us to always integrate denim and leather in the collections to give a surprising dimension to the wardrobe.
The collections was slightly more feminine with feminine materials mixed with leather and denim – what was your inspiration for the autumn/winter 2016 collection?
Subconsciously it can be because we are back in Milan, but it is the idea of the girl during the night-time. It is such a cliché with the day and night looks, but we felt it could be a new cool twist to the collection. We played with mixing the elements like pairing the biker jacket with sequins with the dress. Which worked really well.
I personally think that a tonal look can be much more interesting then a statement prints or color-blocking look. The mix of materials, suede and cashmere, creates a modern take on a the beige shades together with the more eye-catching details as the suede knots and the cut-out details.

Michele certainly didn’t disappoint. The show was amazing and seeing the collection up close was even better. Each item has the soft vintage feeling that Michele calls the Renaissance-era. Think the It girls of the era time-travelling to the 1970s, takin acid while embracing feathers and furs with an undertone of experiment in monochromatic dressing.
Michele has for sure set the tone at Gucci adding more sweaters covered in quirky graphics, this time in new silhouettes with puffed sleeves, ruffles and fur. Getting that 70s lame and 80s sunnies in the collection. And perhaps the new it-bag for fall is the real Gucci? It is now on my wish-list together with the army coloured bomber with the GG tag on back!
For the first day of Milan Fashion Week I went for a tonal black layered look with contrasts in the different materials from the patent bomber, knit blouse and woollen pants. The outfit was perfect for a colour minimalistic look in the sparkly Italian city.
