Ennio Capasa launches new brand Capasa Milano
After six years of retiring from fashion, Ennio Capasa makes a comeback. The Italian designer sold Costume National, the brand he founded in 1986 with his brother Carlo, to his Japanese financial partner, the Sequedge investment group in 2016. After devoting himself to drawing and sculpting these recent years, he returns to the forefront with a new project. A spokesperson has indicated to us that his new brand, Capasa Milano, will launch during Milan Fashion Week.
The ready-to-wear and accessories brand for women and men will mainly retail online through mini limited-edition collections, such as the one launching on Tuesday, February 22. Capasa will unveil a first collection dubbed "Before it starts" at the Arcimboldi Theatre that evening, which will be available for purchase in September.
The Apulia-born designer’s purpose is to offer timeless, sustainable, high-end fashion emphasizing a “made in Italy” production while also focusing on couture and technology. The ready-to-wear pieces will be outsourced; The hosiery company Modit International will manufacture the knitwear while Him (High Italian Manufacturing) and formerly known as the Onward Luxury Group, will be in charge of the shoes.
The project, which is currently self-financed, will reunite the Capasa siblings. Ennio will be accompanied by his brother Carlo who will hold a strategic supporting role in the company but who will no longer be involved in the operational management department like he was in the past. Their New York-based sister Rita will also participate and be a part of the marketing and distribution team.
