Gulf Weekly Dynamic designer adds bite to Chinese  inspiration

Italian designer brand Diesel marks the New Year with a limited capsule collection that celebrates the 11th animal in the Chinese Zodiac, the dog.

People born in the Year of the Dog are said to possess the best traits as they are brave, forthright, friendly, faithful, loyal and smart with a strong sense of responsibility and justice.

This is why the edgy denim, footwear and accessory marque, which stands for passion, individuality and freedom of self-expression, takes inspiration from the best qualities of our furry four-legged friends to create a series of bold prints and cool clothing for every-day-wear.

The capsule includes 14 items from apparel and denim to shoes, bags and accessories. Iconic graphics showing a snarling dog have been created exclusively for this collection and the illustration and use of pop colour are mixed and matched with Diesel’s signature pieces.

The snarling dog is embossed on leather jackets and as a superior embroidery patch on bomber jackets, sweaters, T-shirts and accessories.

For her, the graphic icon is proposed in the monochrome version. The denim is real black, made by a special fabric that guarantees pure and long-lasting colour. The treatment is based on irregular micro abrasions which create a totally unique look, enriched by multifunctional accessories and contrasting stitching.

A unisex backpack is also on offer in this special celebratory line.

The backpack is made using mixed materials such as nylon and leather and embellished with pocket details inside and out and, of course, with the patch embroidered for rich definition.

The dog logo character is also on a tag necklace.

There are even comfortable fun and colourful boxer shorts and socks to complete that total look for the upcoming Year of the Dog celebrations.

There is a Diesel store in City Centre Bahrain.
