DIESEL store The Dubai Mall, Dubai, UAE

Diesel has long been a leading pioneer in denim and casual fashion, known for moving outside and ahead of trends in its industry. While retaining always its DNA, in recent years Diesel has evolved into the world of premium casual wear for men and women, becoming a true alternative to the established luxury market.


From stitching a pair of jeans on his mother's sewing machine as a teenager, Renzo Rosso launched his own brand Diesel in 1978 after buying the clothing manufacturer Moltex and changing its name.

Rosso, who was once dubbed the "jeans genius" by the renowned fashion critic Suzy Menkes, started Diesel with the intention of creating the world’s most innovative jeans, and soon found success. The next 30 years for Diesel were defined by a rock-and-roll vibe, trendy low-rise and distressed jeans and provocative, often surreal advertising campaigns that often featured rebellious scenes such as same-sex couples kissing, decades before this was normalised.


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. Renzo intended to reach the entire world since the brand’s very inception, making the word “diesel,” an international term pronounced equally all over the world, the perfect name for his endeavor.
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. Where the world zigged, Diesel zagged, and in the 35 years since its founding, the brand still embraces the same ethos.
Diesel has over 5,000 points of sale worldwide with over 400 monobrand stores, 37 of those in the US. Between 1978 and 2012, the company has produced more than 2,000 different washes of denim.
