The successful style partnership between Diesel and AC Milan continues for the second season, with the creation of the new off-field uniforms of the Rossoneri football team.
The uniform consists of a lightweight jacket which mixes iconic details from bomber jacket (ribbed cuffs and bottom) and the blazer (lapels), creating a unique product. The classic elements of the formalwear have been simplified and revisited, offering comfort and flexibility to the garment. The shirt is button-less but the silver zip with a leather detail is made in jersey and as comfortable as a T-shirt. The zippered polo neck sweater, in fine merino, is durable and easy-care, perfect for traveling. The five-pocket trousers have been treated with a slight stonewashed and are made in stretch denim, with a regular skinny fit, cut and frayed on the bottom. The multi-pocket parka remained similar to that of the first collection, though naturally renewed, because it already had everything the wearer needed: waterproof and adjustable depending on the seasons.
Great importance has been given to details, such as the patch of the Mohawk metropolitan punk, Diesel’s signature, and the AC Milan official badge, in gilded threads embroidered by hands. The latter is present on the jacket with the official colors of the team while, on the parka, it is showed in its tone on tone and refractive version.
“For this new season, we thought of a visually striking uniform,” said Andrea Rosso, creative director of Diesel Licenses. “We played a lot with the contamination of various elements taking inspiration from the previous project, which defined new stylistic and iconic elements between Diesel and Milan. However, we are bringing a completely new twist and graphic contribution to the collection, with a desire to experiment, explore and dare that is part of Diesel’s DNA. Seeing the whole team wearing the new uniforms for the first time was really exciting!”
The new uniforms by Diesel x AC Milan were worn for the first time by the players and staff in the Italian Serie A Championship on Sunday, September 17, at the occasion of the Milan versus Udinese match.
