C’N’C Costume National


For his C’N’C line, Costume National designer Ennio Capasa tends toward dark, structured looks. This time, while not abandoning his street-y aesthetic, he loosened things up a bit. Drapery and volume became nearly as important as his signature constructed shapes. A billowy dress in a bright blue blurred print had an elongated front panel that was tossed around the neck, creating draped volume, and a black Lurex-shot dress floated open at the thigh and drifted to the floor. A master at using shine in a non-flashy way, Capasa employed lamé in silver brocade and gold for tailored vests. Utilitarian jackets with sturdy zippers and pockets helped to portray C’N’C’s particular sort of urban cool.
