Daytime Metallics
Susanna Lau's view of New York S/S 2012

My New York Fashion Week is now unfortunately done but it ended on a strangely high note - at Diesel Black Gold, of all places. Sophia Kokosalaki's aesthetic has been somewhat swallowed up since joining the Italian superbrand but today, she latched onto a relevant mix of metallics and preppy where printed foil (derived from a smashed mirror) was mixed with oxford shirts.  It's heavily reliant on styling of course but it's certainly a covetable vision for Diesel Black Gold which has sometimes relied too heavily on clubby dresses.
