“I call this collection ‘Sophisticated Freedom’ because it is all about the freedom at the roots of the Costume National brand,” said Ennio Capasa in a preview of his spring/summer 2015 show.
As free as Capasa might be, he is also very much in tune with the moods of the season. His collection ticked most of the trend boxes of Milan Fashion Week. He used a late 60s, early 70s starting point for his show. He incorporated quite a lot of fringe and suede into his line up of looks. And he hit upon the darker color palette (deep chocolate brown, plum, navy, black) that is sweeping through the shows in Italy.
