Courtney Love: I'd work with Diesel

Courtney Love attended Diesel's fashion show in Venice, Italy, yesterday.

The rock singer attended the brand's latest fashion show in Venice, Italy on Thursday. Speaking after the models had strutted their stuff, Courtney revealed how much she loves the ethos of Diesel founder Renzo Rosso.

"It’s so cool. I love Renzo, I love everything he does,” the 49-year-old said to WWD, before adding with a laugh, “I’m wearing Diesel tonight, even if it’s probably more for my daughter than for me."

Courtney was possibly looking for inspiration, as she announced she is planning on launching her own fashion line. She would be thrilled to collaborate with the Italian fashion entrepreneur.

"I’d love Renzo to produce it,” she said.

However, when the 58-year-old was asked about Courtney's idea, Renzo said he was unaware of her plans. But it was an idea that he wouldn't automatically rule out.

"She has never talked to me about this, but never say never," he told the website.

Courtney was one of many celebrities to watch the first show by Diesel artistic director Nicola Formichetti, who joined the Italian company a year ago. The runway presentation focused on the brand's three signature elements: leather, denim and military references.

"There is everything, from classic to sexy, but it’s all so wearable,” Nicola said, while Renzo added: "This is not just a runway show; this is what we want to be in the next ten years. We want to be the contemporary alternative to the world of luxury - no more frivolous things. We want to deliver a very precise image.”
