Costume National takes the first day of the Spring Summer 2014 men's show in Milan with a clear statement, creating a sleek and urban men's attire. Simultaneously making us take a 2nd look with a futuristic yet romantic rock 'n' roll nod to the urban cowboy.
Minimal chic and rocknroll. At the sound of Johnny Cash playing Depeche Mode, my urban i-Cowboy is walking the streets of the world, the easy and the difficult, the real and the virtual, riding beautiful horses made of dreams – designer Ennio Capasa.
What easily stands out is the fabric choice followed by a bold selection of colours such as desert, turquoise, navy, while besides the essential black and white thrown into the mix there is also the showstopping gold. Trousers are skinny and often in leather, perhaps appropriate to the now ever changing summer season. However the outerwear embraces the sartorial note of traditional tailoring, while it also takes on innovation with use of laser cuts and termowelding. Shirts displayed in a classical manner are either long sleeved or sleeveless, iCowboy feeling reappears with twigs and fringes.
