I haven’t seen Nicola Formichetti in months so I was rather excited when I popped backstage at the Arsenale di Venezia, the venue for this season’s Diesel fall 2014 show. “I’m nervous,” he said, after showing me one of the clutch bags modeled after a bible. “Don’t be silly, it’s Diesel, it’s denim,” I replied. His debut collection was built upon three Diesel foundations: rock ‘n’ roll leather, denim and military-utility.
