GO WITH THE FLAW!

Diesel is never just a pair of jeans. It is a statement of personality, a way to express yourself. Reimagining the fabrics and styles worn by bikers of the 1950s and punks of the 1980s, Diesel is treated to another rebellious outing this Spring/Summer – GO WITH THE FLAW!

Modern, smart and effortless dark tapered jeans are an essential. Like most items of black clothing, the darkest of denims is a low-risk, high-reward investment to make. Keep your look monochrome for a modern edge.

SUN SAVVY

It’s easy to forget about summer skin care when you’re having a good time outside. Applying sunscreen regularly is probably the last thing on your mind. However, summer skin care requires you pay close attention.

It’s no secret that the sun has UVA and UVB rays that are extremely damaging to your skin, which makes it hard to believe that so many people still ignore the damage that the sun can cause to their bodies. No matter the shade of your skin – if you’re in the sun you’re at risk. Taking appropriate summer skin care precaution should be a way of life.

TICKLED PINK!

It’s not for girls, it’s for you. Pink is having a moment in menswear this spring. We are showing you how to nail it without looking like you’ve raided your mother’s wardrobe. Menswear brands everywhere have jumped on the trend, with pink caps, pink hoodies and pink trainers all over stores.

Just because you have a newfound love for the colour it’s still important to keep things simple. Don’t over accessorise – pink is a statement in itself. That said, if head to toe pink is not your thing give a nod to the trend with a single item in a toned-down shade that will make a more subtle statement.
