The economy may be troubled, but Ennio Capasa is viewing next spring through rose-tinted glasses. The Italian designer drenched his catwalk in azalea and cherry blossom pink, which gave a shot of color to sporty crisp cotton separates, and in a fragmented petal print that was spliced with solids on dresses and trouser suits. Capasa said his inspiration came from the petal and bondage photographs of Nobuyoshi Araki which translated into a cage-like pattern in paper-thin leather overlaid on the iridescent sheer panels of a white dress. But teetering between light and dark, this collection never truly found its footing.
