Ennio Capasa is the fashion artist that represented a generation of change in the 90’s, creating a brand that it was against everything that fashion designer held dear in the 80’s. Ennio is the stylist and art-director for CoSTUME NATIONAL, CoSTUME NATIONAL HOMME, and C’N’C CoSTUME NATIONAL – the line’s brand for young people. At the 1986 Milan fashion shows Capasa launched his first CoSTUME NATIONAL collection of women’s ready-to-wear.Ten years later,in 1996, The New York Times said about him :“His style has influenced heavyweight labels like Calvin Klein and Gucci.

Costume National’s fall collection hit on tuxedo,military and biker themes. Designer Ennio Capasa knows that having a go-to coat makes tackling cold climes that much easier, and there were several outerwear pieces here that should make the CN customer look forward to bundling up. Capasa incorporates asymmetric elements into each of his collections.A collection that i can call clean cuts,smart and very easy to incorporate in the wardrobe of every women no matter her style.

Two key pant styles — a relaxed jogger-inspired design, and a drop-crotch ankle-length trouser — were paired with very masculine maxi coats and wool jackets with leather panels. One stiff and shiny bomber jacket had flashes of deep, electric blue, lighting up the mostly black lineup. Ennio Capasa is a master in layering, and he’s definitely perfected the biker jacket. I am a fan!
One of my favorite collection for pre-fall 2013!For me, Costume National is exquisite design and high quality. Ennio Capasa extended lapels on jackets and added zipper details and leather touches to asymmetric dresses that stayed close to the designer’s signature aesthetic.
