C'N'C Costume National Spring 2013
"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.
