Ennio Capasa's Fall 2013 collection for Costume National brought a renewed focus to streamlined, minimal, and ultimately essential clothing. Rendered primarily in a palette of black, navy, and white with a few pieces in a navy-and-burgundy striped jacquard, these clothes did away with the artful decorations Capasa applied last season (and the avant-garde attitude he applied in previous outings) and focused on cut and tailoring. The show opened with a few riffs on the tuxedo, followed by a cape piped with satin. A fur vest provided warmth over a shirt with sheer sleeves, and the one all-red look on the runway stood out from the dark looks.
