This short denim skirt is from Diesel's spring/summer 2011 children’s collection.

Diesel is a Italian fashion label with an international presence, producing high-end ready to wear clothes for men, women, and children, as well as a wide range of accessories and homewares. The skirt's designer status is made obvious by the use of the brand's distinctive red and white logotype on the front pocket.
This denim skirt is designed for a girl of twelve years old. Its bleached, distressed finish was a key feature of the label’s 2011 collection for both children and adults.
