In 1978, Renzo Rosso started Diesel with the intention of creating the world’s most innovated denim. Amidst a worldwide oil crisis, during which diesel was considered to be an alternative fuel, Renzo liked the idea of his brand to be known as an alternative jeans brand, in contrast to the prevalent casual wear giants that had come before.
Since its start, Diesel has used “For Successful Living” as a slogan for the brand’s DNA. Through a long and storied history of strong, ironic and playful campaigns, Diesel has become a leader in advertising as well as in fashion.
Co-founders (and good friends) Liz, Lisa and Jane came up with the idea for Mint Velvet in 2009, over cups of fresh mint tea at Liz’s kitchen table. After years of not finding what they wanted to wear on the high street, they had outgrown fast fashion and wanted luxurious, effortless pieces they could just slip on, nodding to the trends in a relaxed way: the concept of Relaxed Glamour was born.
13 years on, Mint Velvet are known for their easy shapes, beautiful prints and flattering fits, all with thoughtful finishing touches – after all, it’s the little things that make life lovely, so you should never underestimate the power of a great outfit on a bad day.
