If you’ve signed into Netflix over the past week or so, it’s impossible that you’ve missed the giant splash of sinister red and peculiar Salvador Dali masks. Being Netlix’s latest internet rave, season three of Spanish show ‘La Casa de Papel’, otherwise known as Money Heist made its debut on July 19th. Already iconic, the red-hooded suits worn by the series’ key characters were designed by Italian label Diesel, which will also be launching an apparel collection inspired by the show. And if you’re ready to join the infamous red-hooded cult, Diesel’s actually letting you pre-book pieces from the collaboration capsule which will be a part of their Autumn-Winter ’19 collection.
Created by Álex Pina and launched in 2017, La Casa de Papel or Money Heist revolves around an assault on the Royal Mint of Spain, led by a character named The Professor who recruits eight people with different abilities to help him out.
The 14-piece capsule’s colour palette is predominantly red, white and black, corresponding to the show’s elemental hues. In terms of design, the motifs are inspired by various character names and their masks. If you’d like a personal preview, between dates 7th to 11th of August, you can drop in at Curato, an all-in-one luxury menswear destination in Mumbai. A spotlighted segment of the capsule will be available for pre-booking, ahead of Diesel’s AW19 launch. The colour red has been spotlighted as it perfectly personifies all the brands involved – Curato, Diesel and the Money Heist dynasty.
As a part of a Diesel’s larger AW19 collection, the Money Heist capsule is purely inspired by utility and athleisure, all wrapped up in Diesel’s uniquely rebellious suave and its love for pop culture. Proud to be the platform to share the Money Heist love, Tanisha Rahimtoola Aggarwal & Shibani Bhagat, Founders of Curato say, “Being huge fans of Netflix and Money Heist, this is a truly exhilarating experience to be able to translate our hobbies into our workplace. Curato is a labour of our love and we are so excited about this successful heist of fashion!
