Milan Fashion Week- Costume National Menswear Fall/Winter 2011/12 Collection


What do you get when you mix the look of Frank Sinatra with the attitude of Johnny Rotten? The answer is : new collection of Costume National. Rebel tailoring at it’s best.


Ennio Capasa is mesmerized by experimental techniques. He dispensed with stitched seams in favor of heat-sealed bonding, and sliced and diced clothes together. That meant the wool sleeves of a loden coat were replaced by khaki leather, while quilted motocross detailing was hybridized into a cardigan. And the designer did away with shirts and ties altogether in favor of punky striped mohair sweaters.
