Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014: Costume National

Costume National Spring/Summer 2014 in review.


Costume National returned to its Milanese homeland after a 23 year hiatus and Creative Director Ennio Capasa brought an industrial tip. With a focus on reconstruction and deconstruction, the personality of the collection perfectly fitted the long airy concrete venue. From asymmetrical motor vests cum coats to transparent vinyl tanks with censored brushstrokes, Capasa provided a feast of minuscule details keeping guests on their toes to catch them all. The collection stuck to a primarily black and white palette but added stand out shots including a neon yellow one sleeved blazer, cropped metallic trousers and plenty of cargo pocket details scattered amongst every piece of the collection. Whilst most of the ensembles focused on boxy, masculine silhouettes, side and front slits on A-line dresses as well as skirts brought sensuality back to the collection.
