Diesel designer: Wear orange

Diesel designer Heikki Salonen suggests wearing orange with "subtly toned pieces" this season.

The creator is head of womenswear at the brand. Heikki confirms orange is going to be one of the biggest looks around over the coming months, so has come up with some easy ways to incorporate the bold hue into an everyday wardrobe.

"Pair it with more subtly toned pieces," he said. "Keeping a look simple can be the key, so wear a statement piece, such as a skirt, with a plain vest or an off-the-shoulder blouse and finish with a fitted jacket."

Heikki also talked about his design process at Diesel. It's important that all the pieces he comes up with fit together feel and that the colour palette is universal.

"Our collections now work around the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe, with one consistent signature colour palette throughout each season," he told the British edition of Glamour magazine. "Our heritage brand colours are military green and blue, and we now add in a flash of colour to highlight key pieces - this season it's burnt orange."
