Milan: Ennio Capasa again mined his 70’s rebellious Rock N’ Roll heritage for his Costume National Homme show but this time in a far more stripped back way. Silhouettes were cut streamlined to the body for a slick, skinny-boy rocker look. The collection was called ‘Fusion’ which you could see most clearly in the fabrics from bonded leather jackets. Suits with metallic shine and great bombers were cut in reflective silver nylon generally used for emergency blankets while sequins were added for a glam finish. The introduction of Native American references gave the collection’s only print and embellishment statement in the form of beaded tops, leather fringe, and studs – a great brown and white cowhide perfecto in an urban animal print appeared in one look. Predominantly, looks came in a restricted monochromatic palette of black, white, navy, cherry red and cobalt blue resembling a 90’s Kraftwerk feel. – Tom Crisp
