Diesel announces the expiration of its collaboration with Sophia
Kokosalaki, who has been designing Diesel Black Gold women’s line since June
2009. Her final collection (Spring/Summer 2013) will be showcased during the
upcoming September New York Fashion Week, as has been the case for the
last 6 seasons. Sophia gave an important, innovative contribution to the line, and thanks to her artistic direction and vision, the brand has become a reference, for press and buyers, in the contemporary fashion segment.
Sophia Kokosalaki: “The last three years I have spent at Diesel Black Gold have
been a very interesting and enjoyable experience. I would like to thank the
whole DBG team for their hard work and support in helping me to establish
this line. I am now looking forward to new challenges and wish Diesel Black
Gold every success in the future”.
’’I am extremely grateful to Sophia for her work and the achievement of the
growth of this line: also thanks to her talent, Diesel Black Gold has defined its
clear identity as a premium stand-alone label’’, comments Renzo Rosso,
founder of Diesel and President of the OTB (Only the Brave) Group.
A new womenswear designer will be announced early October.
