On the coldest day of the NY Fashion Week so far, the great and the good of the style world shuffled over to Pier 94 on the Hudson River to take in the latest collection from Diesel’s Black Gold line.

With A-list support from Chace Crawford, Vanessa Hudgens and Wyclef Jean, designer Sophia Kokosalaki already had a willing audience for her A/W 2011 line – and Diesel Black Gold didn’t disappoint.

Models worked boho-chic in vintage leather and denim with corseted lacing up the sides of trousers and the fronts of dresses, combining the rock ‘n’ roll look with a military vibe.

According to the show’s notes, autumn/winter 2011 will be all about womenswear with a ‘harder edge tempered with reversible shearling, soft suede and cosy knitwear.’

As well as cutout leather, asymmetrical wrap skirts and large collared men’s shirts, models wore new-look biker jackets for A/W11 and suede coats in black, khaki, plum and burgundy.

Accessories? You’ll be needing leg warmers, shoulder bags and lots of scarves for next season and the look is all about side swept long, messy hair and grungy make-up.
