Oyster Playlist: Nicola Formichetti's Designer Soundtrack

Classical symphonies artfully juxtaposed with extended dance remixes.

Diesel has opened a brand new store in Melbs and it's got Artistic Director Nicola Formichetti's personal blessing. To celebrate, Nicola made us a playlist full of tracks which inspired him during the design process. Diesel's new store at 1A 268 Flinders Lane in Melbourne is open now, so get shoppin' and poppin'.

Truss — 'Ganymede (Perc Remix)'
"This really inspired the leather pieces of the collection, a mix of classic and rebel sounds."

Gustav Mahler — Symphony #5 in C sharp minor - 4. Adagietto, sehr langsam
"I love classical music, i m actually a classically trained pianist."

Par-T-One vs INXS – 'I'm So Crazy'
"This song has such a good energy, the kind of song that makes walk fast down the streets when you're wearing headphones."

Domenico Scarlatti — Sonata F minor, K.555
"This is just perfect, this partly inspired the denim part of our Fall/Winter collection, with an Italian background and an Americana touch — the story of Diesel denim."

"The bloody beetroots are amazing, it makes you wanna dance immediately."

Madonna — 'Like A Virgin [extended dance remix]'
"Eternal classic."

The Bloody Beetroots — 'We Are From Venice'
"A Venice touch mixed with a sense of now."
