DIESEL ON!

2017 is set to be a big year for smartwatches. Android Wear 2.0 has finally landed, we’re expecting to see even more hybrid smartwatches – watches that blur traditional designs with contemporary fitness tracking and notification tech – and you can bet your money we’ll be seeing follow-ups.

Add some high-tech style with signature Diesel attitude to your wardrobe with the Diesel On Time hybrid smartwatch. The device itself is typically Diesel – bulky and industrial while still offering a stylish build. In terms of smarts, the On watches come with basic activity tracking and notifications, while the two ‘pushers’ on either side of the crown can be assigned to specific tasks.

Whether you’re style obsessed or want something that’s good at tracking your steps without hammering the battery, this is the one.

  • JEEP® FOOTWEAR AW17

MADE FOR THE STREET

There’s something about winter weather that just makes you want to trade in your sneakers for something warmer and more substantial like a pair of hardwearing boots.

Here are our top picks from the new AW17 Jeep® Footwear collection to get you through the upcoming winter months, whether daily commute, downtime or Sunday morning coffee run.

Fashion: TREAD+MILLER AW17: THE LOAFER

  • BASS WEEJUN MOC LOGAN SHOE , R2 199, TREAD+MILLER

THE LOAFER

Everything old always becomes new again. The loafer has endured update after update, continuously evolving with the changing times. Despite the name Loafer, there’s nothing slovenly about slip-ons, yet they certainly offer a more laid-back look.

Low sitting and without laces, they have a Moccasin-like upper, often with a piece of leather straddling the top and easily differentiated from its cousin the Moccasin by a low heel. These aren’t your granddad’s penny loafers, these are lean and more mean than ever before. Whether you opt for a pair in suede or leather is entirely your call. Either way you’ll be stepping out in laid back style.

GETTING DOWN IN STYLE

Today’s more tailored fit and subtle finishes (think matte) transform the ordinary puffer jacket into a statement of personal style – a sharp, quilted jacket that can complement a pair of smart trousers or a suit just as well as your everyday jeans and sneakers.

Functionality has always driven puffer jackets and that practicality isn’t lost on these K-Way Down Jackets. Invest in any of these quality quilted jackets and you’ll find all the bells and whistles, like white duck down filling for warmth and breathability, wind-protection, water-repellent coating and enough pockets to hold all your stuff – whether you’re on your commute to the office or simply making a Sunday morning dash for coffee.

From military-inspired details, an array of colours and performance-minded materials, these down puffers are timeless, stylish, functional, and above all else – darn warm!

Our top picks…in no particular order.

AN ICON IN EVERY WAY

The biker jacket is an iconic style that instantly conjures images of Hollywood icons such as James Dean and Marlon Brando. Traditionally made from leather, there’s no reason the biker jacket can’t adapt to other aesthetics.

The JX Premium biker is a great lightweight cotton alternative to leather for our moderate winters. Wear it over a button-down shirt and skinny jeans for a classic look that oozes effortless cool. Smarten up with Chelsea boots and a tie or dress down with sneakers. It’s a classic look that every man can pull off.

THE VELVET BOMBER

Velvet is having a moment and is making a comeback as this season’s answer to texture. The former military piece has become a menswear staple in every way possible and gets reworked in velvet. Before you sign up, let’s look at what exactly it is about velvet that is having a reawakening.

Casual velvet? Yes, sir. Velvet isn’t meant for the red carpet anymore. That’s great news, meaning you get to be a little more relaxed when wearing it – and it’s easy to do so. Slim jeans and plain tees is an easy outfit, made super sportsluxe with this contrast leather collared velvet bomber jacket from Diesel’s AW17 collection.
