The Smoking Silhouette, Reinvented In The Costume National Fall/Winter 2013 Show

For the Costume National Fall/Winter 2013 show, Ennio Capasa reinvented the smoking silhouette in innovative versions, from straight-cut jackets and vests featuring a single lapel in shiny black satin, to dresses fashioned out of layered silk veils, with asymmetrical hems, worn over cigarette trousers.

A subtle graphic print, inspired by the traditional clothing of the Miao tribe, featured on a series of outfits, brought a dash of ethnic spirit, while fur and leather accents on sleeves, waists or torsos, completed the collection’s air of calculated refinement with an edgy vibe.
