I kind of have to pinch myself that I'm working with Diesel. I've always idolized their brand--when I was a little kid, it was THE "designer label" for me, and my attempts to emulate their hedonistic, rock 'n' roll, give-no-fucks vibe probably played a big part in shaping my aesthetic today. I had the opportunity to style their Pre-Fall '14 collection and I went for the beautifully decaying rockstar approach. My favorite piece has to be this denim moto. It meets all my construction requirements for a high-end moto (for instance, functioning lapel buttons) and looks like it's been through World War III and then tossed in the mud. Isn't that delightful? Check out the rest of their Pre-Fall '14 lineup here.
