Diesel is a fashion industry legend, a pioneer in the world of denim and casual wear. Never forsaking its original DNA, Diesel has evolved into an iconic global lifestyle brand, beyond the trends, and yet ahead of them. Despite the company's extraordinary growth, its philosophy remains the same as in 1978, when Renzo Rosso envisaged Diesel as a brand that would stand for passion, individuality and self-expression. Today, Diesel continues to blaze its own trail. It is on a continuing mission to challenge the status quo, experiment with new ideas, innovate and provoke.
