"Minimal military chic" was the name of the game for Ennio Capasa earlier today at C'N'C Costume National. To that end, the designer offered up plenty of re-imagined utility gear in slouchy silhouettes and a palette of army green, black, and oyster. Epaulets, cargo pockets, and asymmetry — in the form of surplice wraps and draped panels — each featured heavily, as did sheer and shiny fabrics in the form of charmeuse, chiffon, and leather. It was a formula that, for the most part, worked well — especially in the form of a chiffon t-shirt with leather sleeves and a relaxed jumpsuit made up of a sheer bodice and pants with leather pockets at the knee.
