The Chase

Text by Lucia Davies // 20 September 2010/

This adrenaline-charged chase sequence by photographer Will Davidson shot exclusively for AnOther captures Sophia Kokosalaki’s debut A/W10 collection for Diesel Black Gold amidst a bustling cityscape. “The Chase” is inspired by classic cinematic pursuit scenes of the French New Wave, and the noir chic aesthetic evokes an industrial European feel. Kokosalaki’s collection was a perfect match to the inner-city setting and Davidson’s signature dark and gritty style: leather combined with slim-fit distressed denims, conjures an air of rebellion and an artisanal punkish attitude.

Sneak peak spring 2011…


Diesel Spring 2011: Denim. Leather. And Hardware. Oh My!

Diesel Spring 2011

Denim. Leather. Hardware. Oh my! Diesel is Multitudinal. From Diesel, Diesel Black Gold, and 55 DSL, each line brings a different perspective and vision to its heritage.

With denim as its core, the use of soft cotton stretch with varying colors and styles lures the new customers and brings in the old loyalties. From the women’s mint and sherbet colored jeans, multicolor printed pieces to the beaded dresses – its foray defines edge, vintage, and feminity.

On the other hand, function and utility combines leather, suede, and hardware in menswear bridging a ‘camo’ meets Hollywood touch.

Attitude, lifestyle, and comfort describe the 55 DSL collection. Its street influence and playful vibe shows youth and fun through graphic tees, hoodies, and vests. Must have items include washed green motorcycle leather jacket (option to turn into vest), printed and beaded dresses and shoes, and suede jackets/minis.

Diesel’s core is denim. It is part of their DNA. Ranging from exclusive treatments and washes in optional fits, there is always a pair for anyone. With the holidays and spring right around the corner, Diesel is a perfect stop for a gift to someone … or yourself.

Hot Models Get Busy in Brooklyn Law Library

By Elie Mystalalt // 11 Nov 2010//

The library at Brooklyn Law School is fast becoming the most sexual law library in America. Last week, the class of 2010 dedicated a plaque inside the library warning students, “It’s supposed to be hard.” This week, we’ve learned that the law library also plays host to some hard bodies.

Apparently, Brooklyn Law allowed models from Diesel Jeans to use its law library for a photoshoot. The jeans didn’t stay on for long. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the law library for the 67th best law school in America….


A spokesperson for Brooklyn Law School told Above the Law how the photo shoot came about. Apparently school officials were caught a little bit off guard by the nature of the shoot:

Television and movie producers frequently ask for permission to use our beautiful facilities as a backdrop and we try to oblige when we can. When we gave Diesel jeans permission to do a photo shoot, we understood that jeans, and not what is worn under them, would be the subject of the shoot. We would not want to create the impression that the featured attire was approved by us.

Well, I for one approve of the featured attire. And really, I don’t think the issue is the clothing, so much as the setting. You know what I mean? Check out this desk:


Undoubtedly there is a Brooklyn Law student reading this post at that very desk. And I bet that person didn’t think to put on a condom before he started studying today.

But Brooklyn Law students shouldn’t be embarrassed by this use of their library. No really. It’s cool. I mean, take a look at this one. It’s very tasteful:


You can see the full photoshoot here.

Of course, the people in those pictures are just models. It’d be much more interesting if real Brooklyn Law students participated in this photoshoot. I bet a “Hotties of Brooklyn Law Calendar” would leave Cardozo and Fordham students ruing their choices.
