Costume National


Ennio Capasa’s Costume National collection seemed to be made-to-order for the rocker chick sensibility so prevalent among young women. Sexy leather pieces and tiny short-shorts were plentiful, giving the looks an edge. The abbreviated bottom surfaced as an important element throughout, as all pants were cropped at mid-calf and shorts were and dresses exposed maximum leg. Capasa often combined leather bottoms with matching jackets or vests for polished tough-girl looks. Sparkly lamé was used for a gunmetal draped top and little strapless shift dresses. Cropped pants and a matching wrapped vest were made from a sleek silver jacquard. Wispy chiffon scarves were added to many of the day looks and were echoed in the floating shapes of eveningwear, as in a strapless Yves Klein Blue dress scumbled with a black print and shot with sparkling threads.
