Back in the nineties, Ennio Capasa introduced a new way of mixing minimalism and good tailoring with his Costume National. Now that minimalism is (still) having its moment on the fashion runways, this obviously can not be called an introduction any longer.

So what does Capasa do to stay new and fresh? The fall/winter 2013 show did not contain a lot of ‘new’ things, or things that not anyone has ever seen before. Just good and functional tailoring in black, navy, white and a bit of burgundy.

There were some strong pieces that could definitely be called cravings, but they did not give me goosebumps. I mean I like timeless and classic pieces more than anyone, they just need to have this little surprising element that was missing here and there.

  16. Love all the leather!! <3 It's sorta celine-esque, but then again, so many labels are doing the whole celine thing. You should check my first post from Paris Fashion Week with me covering the Charlotte Olympia FAIRYTALE presentation, be prepared to be wow-ed with enchanted accessories including clock boots, grimm book clutches, and Rapunzel stilettos. Hope they fully provoke the heck out of you! <3
