Diesel Black Gold Menswear Now at Saks

The collection made its world debut at none other than Pitti Uomo in Florence, where it had the honor of being the gigantic trade show’s spotlight collection. It was also Melbostad’s first menswear collection ever. Those are some auspicious beginnings and the collection lived up to the grand set-up. “I started with very iconic pieces – biker jackets, biker pants and peacoats,” Melbostad replied when Keith Pollock asked about his approach to designing the collection. “For example, we took a biker jacket and made it out of herringbone wool. It was all about taking iconic pieces and repurposing them. Keep the original emotion of the garment, but explore new ways of showing them.”

Despite their nascent status, Public School was able to beat out some stiff competition in their category, including New York favorite Timo Weiland. “We’re so incredibly thrilled and honored to be selected as the US representative in the first Woolmark Prize for menswear,” the duo stated after their win. “Working with wool and all of its natural benefits has been instrumental in developing the trans-seasonality and versatility of our own collection and it’s going to really help jump-start our knitwear business.”

Stay tuned to see who makes the international cut.
