Glenn Martens wows with his first DIESEL runway show
Another one for Glenn Martens—you go Glenn Martens! Still buzzing from the commotion he created during the couture season earlier this year, Martens has delivered another sensational collection, this time for DIESEL. As part of the brand’s revamp that began in summer 2021, Martens has been creating collections that not only stay true to DIESEL’s house codes and denim-focused DNA, but also offer something fresh and very modern. As the designer finds his stride within the industry, his own signature style is beginning to take shape, no matter what house he might be designing for. The all-gender offering has four main themes including denim, utility, pop, and artisanal. The use of techniques such as trompe l’oeil, upcycled, distressed, and treated denim, as well as the return of the signature ‘D’ logo and new twists on vintage DIESEL graphics can be seen throughout the collection. A majority of the denim cuts are from DIESEL Library, the brand’s core range of sustainable denim. “The power of DIESEL is that we talk to so many people. We can push sustainability and innovation, and we can push experimentation and concept. It’s pure DIESEL–you need to put it on in two seconds and live your life. For Successful Living!”, says Martens.
Cara Delevingne teams up with 7 For All Mankind
Denim brand 7 For All of Mankind has announced their newest celebrity ambassador: British actress, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and style icon Cara Delevingne. The partnership seems only natural for the brand since they are female-led and seek to empower strong, entrepreneurial women who use their influence to support important causes. Environmental issues, mental health, and LGBTQ+ rights are all on 7’s to-tackle list, and Delevingne has been an advocate for all of these in the past. The supermodel now fronts the sustainably-minded Spring 2022 offering; a mix of romantic ‘70s staples juxtaposed with a hint of minimalist ‘90s to create a distinctly modern interpretation suited for now. “Denim is a fantastic, enduring style statement and an essential part of how I express my style,” the mod says. “I am excited that 7 For All Mankind is creating more inclusive fits and embracing responsible practices in their designs. 7 is showing us how leading fashion brands can shape a better future.”
