Diesel Pre-Fall 2024: Innovation Meets Iconography

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Diesel’s Pre-Fall 2024, under Glenn Martens’ vision, redefines layering with a collection where innovation meets wardrobe staples. Martens, known for his democratic approach to design, infuses technical prowess into the everyday, revealing layers of Diesel’s ingenuity.

This season, Martens challenges perceptions with pieces that blend and contrast. Denim is reinvented—bonded, lasered, and transformed—while trompe l’oeil effects create an illusion of depth. The garments, complex in creation yet simple in their wearability, echo Martens’ philosophy of accessible luxury.

Accessories, from the metal cage D on shoes to the recycled materials of the Play bag, extend this narrative. Diesel’s new eyewear and watches from the Metamorph range embody Martens’ commitment to pushing the boundaries of design. With this collection, Diesel solidifies its position as a fashion innovator, blending craftsmanship with Martens’ distinctive creative touch.
