A few days after announcing what will be its first fashion show during Milan fashion week, Diesel and its current creative director, the Belgian Glenn Martens, have just unveiled its Pre-Fall 22 collection just like Christopher John Rogers, Balenciaga or Moschino.

After remaining in the background for a while, it seems that Martens has returned the Italian brand founded by Renzo Rosso to the place it deserved, thanks to the radical freshness and experimental skill that Glenn brings to each and every one of the garments and accessories.

Composed of 50 looks, with a predominantly Y2K touch, G.M. has added the “cool” touch that Diesel so desperately needed, making this one of the best Pre-Fall collections of the season. In it we can find a wide selection of denim garments redesigned with a progressive, gender-neutral and sustainable approach, all of them made with low-impact materials or recycled organic fabrics treated with techniques that significantly reduce the use of chemicals and water waste. On the other hand, we also have to point out that the leather that some of their garments are made with does not contain chrome, the buttons on them are not galvanised and the cellulose labels and trims are made with recycled fabrics and materials certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. 

Finally, we can’t end this review without mentioning the XL puffer jackets or the tight-fitting, asymmetrical dresses in stretch chiffon.

What do you think of Glenn Martens’ sustainable vision of the 2000s in Diesel’s Pre-Fall 22 collection?
