Ennio Capasa and his brother founded Italian brand CoSTUME NATIONAL in 1986. Italian designer Ennio Capasa started out as an assistant for Yohji Yamamoto before returning from Japan and launching his own fashion line. Famed for quality tailoring and androgynous separates, CoSTUME NATIONAL gathered a cult following at speed and went on to debut its collections on the catwalk in Paris. Utilizing a signature dark colour palette, the minimalist CoSTUME NATIONAL tote designs are off-set by the refined leathers and edgy silver-toned hardware, which create an understated elegance and a heavy hit of attitude. For an accessory that exudes sophistication and femininity, a CoSTUME NATIONAL tote is a new season investment.
