BREAKING: #DieselReboot is #NicolaFormichetti
So…some pretty major news just popped up via email. It’s bu-bye to Mugler and hello to…. Diesel for Nicola Formichetti. Who we just learned was named to be their new artistic director. Exciting details post jump.
From the Diesel team:
“I finally met somebody as crazy as I am,” said Renzo Rosso, founder of Diesel. “Nicola shares my vision and I find it incredibly inspiring to work with him: two creative planets are colliding to generate fresh, mad, insane ideas. With his help, I want to break more rules and bring the real Diesel to a new generation.”“When Renzo asked me,” said Nicola Formichetti, the edgy young visionary, “I remembered that Diesel and I are all about the same things. No rules! It’s about being empowered, It’s about being free. It’s a positive revolution. We’re going to REBOOT! Hit refresh. That’s our first project: we’re ripping apart everything to re-build something bigger. I want to get the creative young people around the world to be part of the process.” Nicola Formichetti will start his new role with the DIESELREBOOT project. He plans to mobilize an emerging global creative community to collaborate with him. The project will live in the unruly, uncivilized, all-access zone of TUMBLR: www.dieselreboot.tumblr.comwhi
