For s/s 2016, Diesel Black Gold has launched a new jeans style that is 50 percent longer than standard jeans and creates a 3-D wrinkle effect around the leg.

The new Type-2614 jeans style is an extra-long 5-pocket style crafted from a super stretch denim fabric finished with a pressing treatment to obtain a wrinkled effect. The new model perfectly combines a slim fit with a 3-D effect, achieved through the manual insertion of pipes into each leg.

“I created Type-2614 with the idea of adding texture to a long lean silhouette,” commented Andreas Melbostad, creative director, Diesel Black Gold. “By cutting the jeans extra-long and then crushing them, we gave new dimension and movement to the leg.”

Diesel Black Gold hired photographer Yvan Fabing to shoot black and white photographs and short videos exalting the jeans’ spirit. For the campaign, Fabing lensed twin brothers Wyatt and Fletcher Shears, founders of Orange County-based punk band “The Garden”.
