Encouraging people to push boundaries and stand against hate.

Words by

Eliza Sholly

This month, Diesel is breaking down barriers at Emporium Melbourne.

The brand has partnered with esteemed photographer, David LaChapelle, to create the Make Love Not Walls campaign, which saw an inflatable rainbow-coloured tank literally breaking down walls in the streets of London. With this gesture, Diesel aimed to reimagine the tank, from a military machine of destruction to an emblem of hope.

In this vein, Emporium Melbourne and Diesel are together encouraging people to push boundaries and stand against hate.

This is the only Australian destination to host the controversial campaign before it embarks on a global tour, stopping in New York, Shanghai, Milan, Berlin and Tokyo.
