Last night, our latest edition of size?sessions saw East London Yxng Bane take over our Carnaby Street store. Dressed in Diadora, the ‘Rihanna’ hit-maker dropped some of his biggest tracks during an intimate set in front of a local crowd. Despite being an unknown artist with little to no following, he dropped “Lone Wolf” on Soundcloud at the age of 19, and the song went on to amass over 790,000 plays, making him an immediate ‘one to watch’. In the two years that have followed, he’s released an endless stream of dancehall-fused rap and R&B tracks that have set the internet alight. Signed up by Diadora towards the end of last year, Bane’s eclectic style was on full show as he ran through his big hitters, including his remix of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ and his latest single, ‘Vroom.’
Sitting down before the event; Bane talked about his background and musical influences and picked out some of the Diadora styles that tick his boxes, including the N9002 that he wore on the night.
This rendition of the N9002 features hits of sea blue and comes with classic branding throughout. Crafted from luxe suede and nylon, the collar delivers instant comfort the moment you step in; underfoot the lightweight shoe is engineered with innovative technology for premium cushioning.
This season, the Diadora Camaro returns tonal hues of blue. The shoe features a suede-over-mesh construction, with tonal textile panels to the medial and lateral sides.
Engineered with Double Action technology for supreme levels of cushioned comfort, Diadora’s Rebound also comes with pops of vibrant colour, vintage branding and perforated detailing for enhanced breathability.
The N9000 first debuted in 1990, and this season Diadora dissect their archives as they remaster the iconic silhouette. Crafted from a rich mix of suede and mesh, the two-tone trainer is embellished with classic branding on the tongue, sidewalls and heel.
Diadora B.Elite Leather
Diadora’s B.Elite plays host to full grain leather uppers and iridescent gold branding which adorns the sidewalls and heel.
