The Hero Sur­vey.

You might learn some­thing A great leather jacket and dark jeans. They’re iconic pieces that I al­ways re­turn to in my own wardrobe, and they are a con­stant source of in­spi­ra­tion for Diesel Black Gold.

Preppy. It’s a re­silient trend that I would be happy to see go away. I love ar­chi­tec­ture and in­te­rior de­sign, so if I wasn’t a de­signer then I would prob­a­bly have been drawn to­ward one of these ca­reers. If I have to pick one I might say the 1950s be­cause the process of break­ing with norms and con­ven­tion started then. I like how there was ten­sion be­tween es­tab­lished codes and new ideas. It was the start of youth and coun­ter­cul­ture, and this move­ment car­ried for­ward into the ’60s and ’70s, and gave birth to Mods, Punks, Rock­ers, and other strong move­ments that still in­spire and in­form the way we dress to­day. My leather jack­ets. I think men can ex­press them­selves the most through their choices of out­er­wear, and my num­ber one choice is leather jack­ets. I would be very sad to lose any of my favourites. I would have loved to dress bands like The Clash or Joy Di­vi­sion — not that they needed any help.

The best night off for me is when I’m home in New York. With my hec­tic travel sched­ule and many nights in ho­tels, I’m hap­pi­est hav­ing a quiet night at home or din­ner with close friends.

Self-ex­pres­sion. Menswear is be­com­ing more free and di­verse, and I’m en­joy­ing see­ing men ex­press their in­di­vid­u­al­ity through their ap­parel.
