The Italian brand's creative director Ennio Capasa was asked by contempory artist Marina Abramović to contribute to the recent Art of Elysium gala in Los Angeles, with the event's 'Heaven' theme giving form to his latest collection.

Costume National's Capasa first served up a series of fur and leather looks with fringed accessories, and slim tailored leather pants with a slight flare. They were joined with suede biker jackets, a black feather skirt, and then sleek silk jumpsuits and dresses with a sporty zip. 

The California desert hippie vibe came through in flowing gowns and separates, adding to the dreamlike state of the collection (apparently inspired in part by the idea of angels that have fallen onto a hangar roof in LA). As usual for the Milanese label there were some solid menswear touches including striped suiting, velvet tuxedos, and shimmering ties and cuffs inspired by masculine business classics.
