Milan, Italy – Founding Partner and Creative Director of Costume National Ennio Capasa, and CEO of Costume National Carlo Capasa announced yesterday their departure from the company they founded in 1986. Costume National successfully marked the path to redefining the masculine and feminine silhouette of the 90’s, launching a “cool and chic” contemporary, timeless style that has been appreciated by both the international press and the market for three decades.
In a joint statement, the brothers stated: “Today is for us a bittersweet time as we end this extraordinary creative cycle. We hope that the future continues to hold even greater success for the brand and Sequedge. As for us we will continue to follow our passion into new ventures.”
The Capasa Brothers explained that to continue to tell a story and to revitalize their vision, it was time to take on other challenges. Sequedge the Japanese business partner of Costume National since 2009, has now taken over the company, according to past agreement executed among the parties and will leave the brothers free to immediately pursue new collaborations across a wider international spectrum.
Carlo is still very active in fashion. In April 2015, he took over from Mario Boselli as president of the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (the Italian Chamber of Fashion).
