PAINKILLER Fall/Winter 2013 “Love will keep us alive” was inspired by French documentary film “March of the Penguins“. The film depicts the monogamous love story and extraordinary journey of the Emperor penguins, who each year travel to the ancestral breeding ground, in order to mate and to feed their offspring.
Also inspired by the relationship between Napoleon and Josephine, the collection features “Au destin”, the phrase engraved behind the jewelry that Napoleon gave to Josephine for engagement.
The palette of the collection consists of white, baby-blue, hot-pink, grey and black. The silhouette is roundish and loose like the graphic line of penguins’ body, while the fabrics choices are used accordingly to Napoleon’s military life, crisp and clean.
Unlike his previous almost grotesque electronic releases, “Piel” it’s a wonderfully written composition, entirely sang in Spanish revealing to the world a much more intimate and sensitive side of Alejandro Ghersi.
#makelovenotwalls is about tearing down the mental and physical walls that separate us, and let all sides come together in the name of unity and love. Diesel wants to tear down these walls showing that a brighter and exciting tomorrow is possible.
