They're coining a new term: the "authentic" knockoff. It is faux-faux fashion— fit for today's fast-paced fashion, lusting for logomania, thirsting for fresh trends, and the do-or-die desperation forcing designers to re-brand. Diesel knows how to deal— not only did they change their classic font, but for this capsule collection on Canal, they're calling themselves DEISEL. Yes, there's tongue-in-cheek to it all, but beyond the humor, what they've created holds weight— DEISEL's collection is a cultural commentary, standing in support of seeking originality, stimulating innovation within the industry, and highlighting the bold buyers who aren’t afraid to sport a “fake.” This is fuck-it fashion, retail revamped for the fearless, "real New Yorkers."
