A Seventies influence ran through Ennio Capasa’s resort collection for Costume National, from wide-leg pants to fringed jackets in black and camel-colored suede, with select styles toughened up with circular “piercing” hardware.


Men’s wear silhouettes dominated — from leather bomber jackets, some of which featured 3-D embossing and elasticized netting at the trim, to three-piece suiting offered in red, black and deconstructed pinstripes. A vested dress with a pleated skirt was a nice play on the lineup’s masculine/feminine influences. Capasa also drew from Daniel Libeskind, pulling a few patterns and prints from the architect’s strange geometry.
