Runway Return

Andreas Melbostad is back. The soft-spoken Norwegian—who has held top design positions at Yves Saint Laurent, Guy Laroche, and fashion-favorite Phi—is now bringing his streamlined sensibilities to Diesel Black Gold. Melbostad’s official return was marked with a Pre-Fall presentation at the end of last year, with a more formal show to take place during New York fashion week, in February. “I like the irreverent attitude of the brand, and I am inspired by its brave and bold approach,” says the designer whose domination of svelte, European fit dovetails perfectly with the brand’s sexy, fun-loving aesthetic. “Diesel has very global and forward-thinking concepts for its products. This thinking shows in every aspect of the company and has created a unique and inspiring environment to work in.”
