Structured as a series of distinct collaborative capsule collections, the Diesel Red Tag project proposes a multi-angled, evocative twist on the label’s transgressive menswear legacy. With an off-kilter approach to tailoring occupying alternately nuanced or central roles throughout, Diesel Red Tag’s progressive outerwear, denim, and leather provides a thorough reimagination of its parent label’s identity, afforded by the wholehearted welcome of carefully-curated outsider input courtesy of the most renowned creatives in contemporary menswear. Reconciling disparate perspectives into a whole that reflects both the label’s Italian roots and the Americana-indebted cues that color their rustic finishes, the components of the Red Tag line are at once self-referential and endearingly alien. Allowing its collaborators to freely mold its aesthetic building blocks, the line’s forward-thinking spirit results in an appealing amplification of Diesel’s defining characteristics. The collection’s experiments often arrive by way of dimension rather than texture, with subtle tweaks to iconic denim-on-denim looks and sumptuous leather jackets bringing distinctive flair to dependable wardrobe staples. Debuting with streamlined collections conceived by Shayne Oliver and Glenn Martens, the Red Tag label marks a groundbreaking chapter in Diesel’s already-illustrious legacy.
