Costume National F/W 2015
Ennio Capasa doing what he does best: Sartorial rock’n roll
Rock gods do still exist. One can find them at Costume National. Those deities swaggered down Ennio Capasa’s latest catwalk with all the nonchalance one expects from Italy’s tailor to rock’n roll.
One could only admire the dandy in the green shaggy goatskin blouson, or the brill’ lazar cut hussar jackets, redingotes and biker looks done in a well-chosen sandy beige.
And when the lords of the rock universe mate it is with Birds of Paradise – Ennio showed a half dozen women’s looks – vaunting their bodies in dramatic marabou feather coats. Ideal arm candy for the an Indie band album cover. The designer was inspired by his recent partnership in Los Angeles with Marina Abramovic, but we really felt this was the latest statement of Ennio’s central DNA – Gotha Rock chic.
We even had an appearance by a doppelganger for Peter Dundas baby brother, with the Norwegian’s curly hair, natty bluster and lowered eyes. And an appearance by Capasa’s handsome son.
In a word, the neatest of fashion moment’s, and a charming exposition on the virtues all rockers’ wardrobes.
