Paris Fashion Week A/W 11: Costume National
Ennio Capasa knows how to work the minimalist aesthetic but always manages to make it look interesting. Drawing on some of the themes that we saw from him for spring, the collection featured thick thermo-welded fabrics on jackets, coats and square shaped shift dresses that hinted towards a futuristic edge. As always, the lines were sleek and the silhouettes sharp but in a modernist way, moving his interest in the Sixties way beyond the cliché stereotypes.
The collection began with white and black looks such as a white waistcoat with black zips teamed over a black long sleeved top. As well as cigarette pants with statement black leather heels and oversized clutches, and dresses also appeared with both white and black panels.
