Diesel previously announced that their higher-end line’s current designer, Sophia Kokosalaki, will leave the label after its September 11 fashion show in New York. Today WWD reports that she’ll be replaced by Andreas Melbostad, who currently works with Roberto Cavalli and has previously designed for Guy Laroche, Yves Saint Laurent, and Calvin Klein. Hopefully none of these changes will affect their perpetually unpredictable (and thus highly entertaining) show attendees, which have ranged from a confused-looking Gerard Butler to Paz de la Huerta to a rotating group of CW stars past and present.
