The newly launched Red Tag Project – launching at PFW – will see three designers create one-off collections for the label
Since he presented the SS18 collection at Helmut Lang, things have been relatively quiet with designer Shayne Oliver. He skipped the AW18 show at NYFW and has put his own brand, Hood By Air, on a brief hiatus while acting as guest designer at the revived iteration of the iconic brand. Now, it has been announced that Oliver is designing a capsule for Diesel.
While the mainline doesn’t currently have a creative director – after the exit of Nicola Formichetti at the end of last year – brand founder Renzo Rosso created the Red Tag Project as a three-part series, enlisting designers to come and create one-off capsule collections.
“This capsule is really the language of Renzo, the brand founder. Refined razor-sharp denim aesthetics that devours the excesses of trendiness,” Oliver told WWD. Little is known about what the collection will entail, other than it will be made up of ten looks and will reinterpret denim – something the label is known for.
The best part about the news is that you won’t have long to wait: the collection will debut at Paris Fashion Week on March 3. There will even be a special performance in addition to the collection. Keep an eye out for more details.
