BEAUTY: Clothing--Costume National
At Milano Moda Uomo, Costume National's Ennio Capasa listened to David Bowie's "African Night Flight" to inspire his Spring Summer '13 collection, which he dubbed "New Wave Safari." (This is the first of two Bowie-referenced collections at Milano Moda Uomo this year!) Considering that Bowie's song (from 1979's brilliant and overlooked "Lodger") is about a trip from London to Mombasa, the show indeed looked like a Saharan adventure by way of London or even Manhattan in 1982. Side-buckled pants in sandy Lawrence-of-Arabia tones gave way to sheer black.
