If you're unfamiliar with name Faustine Steinmetz, that's about to change. The London-based Parisian designer – best known for her intricate and imaginative reworking of denim pieces – has just been tapped to create a capsule collection with Diesel.
Steinmetz is the first designer Diesel has teamed up with as part of Denim Lab, a space for experimentation created by Artistic Director Nicola Formichetti to champion young designers. This womenswear and menswear capsule collection, in particular, pushes the boundary of traditional design with denim-mesh skirts, jackets, dresses, and jumpsuits featuring a transparent devoré motif. The result? Pure surrealism – just imagine denim being ‘erased’ to create the illusion of it being suspended in midair.
