COSTUME NATIONAL – SPRING/SUMMER 2013

“The essence of COSTUME NATIONAL HOMME for the Summer 2013 lies in the new wave and post punk movement which, to date, is still full of vitality and one of my main sources of inspiration.

As the soundtrack for this runway show, I chose a brand new song by Angus Stone, one from The Liars, and a fragment of David Bowie’s African Night Flight, inspired by a trip he made from London to Mombasa.  The COSTUME NATIONAL HOMME man moves in a lightweight black leather sahariana, or in a super tailored, seamless laser cut suit in cotton silk.  This is how the rebel chic attitude is at once conveyed, and the story that I tell and that tells me, inevitably unfolds”       -    Ennio Capasa, designer
