Costume National S/S 2011

Traditional Italian tailoring and innovation stimulates Costume National. Italian designer Ennio Capasa experimented with innovative ideas bringing traditional Italian tailoring into the future. The innovative method known as thermo welding gave incredible results similar to the hand work of a couturier. The laser cuts were completely precise giving a uncut and flawless look displaying no visible seams. The experimentation was also evident in the fabric selection when combined a structured wool material with light flowing silk creating something similar to nylon. Structured and light fabrics were merged together to create pieces that were strong maintaining an easy going sensation. The color palette was neutral with colors of cream, gray, beige, black and nude. Lime and light rose was the only splash of color that was visible in the transparent tops. The Costume National look was exceptionally tailored with classic and innovative elements.

The show was held in Milan at 58 Via Tortona show space in a simple setting with all the attention focused on the collection. The opening look was a beige slim tailored jacket paired with matching trousers and a lime translucent top. The tailored jackets were chic offered in single and double breasted variations with hidden buttons and zippers. Jackets were simple and structured with a nice blend of light wool and silk making it a perfect for the next spring and summer season. The shirts very relaxed and light offered in organza and jersey worn under a jacket.

Admired pieces in the collection were the tailored jackets and one in particular was a white tuxedo jacket in satin with laser cut hems. The formal overcoats were exquisite and completely form fitting with immense detailing of hidden buttons and zippers.

Ennio Capasa collection was entirely innovative bringing Italian tailoring into the future with exquisite pieces perfect for the next spring and summer season. Every piece offered in the collection was chic and comfortable. The Costume National man has a great appreciation of exceptional tailoring and quality. -Brent Billiman, Milan, Italy.
