TEXT BY MIKE KAGEE



       "We were looking at many of the great images, from fashion
        advertising to fine art, that have shaped our way of looking
        at things, we wanted to bring together-pop-Picasso style
        through the use of digital medium in many ways.
        The great pop-shots through history, from Michaelangelo
        to Avedon. Now the Diesel Reboot is complete, this is foundation
        for the new vision of Diesel and with new beginnings there 
        is always a certain looking back to take forward , here it appears
        as a sort of Neo-Neoclassicism in the company.
        SAID NICOLA FORMICHETTI
        Artistic Director of Diesel

        There is a deliberate attempt to look at Italian art
         throughout the centuries,right back to the Renaissance
         It was an idea to bring together moments in visual culture
         that we liked. Think what is interesting, while referring
         to these moments, is that Nicola Formichetti is also bringing
         his glitching community, that sense of global and new
         it's a juxtoposition of the two, the classical and the digital
         that makes them both feel stronger.
