Nineties favourite denim label, Diesel has been quietly been making a return to form in recent seasons, with their sexy Skinzee jeans and new collections of low key seperates. Now with Nicole Formichetti on board as Creative Director, all eyes are on the Italian denim brand.
This season, Tali Lennox, daughter of Annie and model in her own right has been cast by Diesel as ambassador for their S/S 2013 line and has been lensed in Harvey Nichols’ exclusive collection from the collection - see the gorgeous pictures below. We caught up the young Lennox to quiz her on her collaboration with Diesel and her summer festival style!
Tali Lennox for Diesel S/S 2013 Collection Stocked at Harvey Nichols
GD: What is your signature festival look?
TL: At burning man I love to make my costumes. I cover swim suits in jewels and butterflies. At other festivals I wear more casual and practical clothes. But at burning man a lot of the fun comes from the total escapism and wearing a costume or something you would never usually wear - you have the freedom to be anything you want. Most nights I would wear an all in one white suit with crystals sewn on, with, a matching white hat, and white gillet, (it gets quite cold at night)and I'd put silver white facepaint on my face with white crystals. I felt like a Russian Grinch!
GD: What are your tips for summer dressing?
TL: Wear what you feel the most free and light in. Summer is all about having fun and enjoying yourself, so I like to wear a lot of light colours and casual clothes, nothing stiff or heavy.

GD: Are you denim obsessive? If so what are your favourite denim pieces?
