menswear collections: costume national, spring

by Jeremy Danté

while very minimal use of color was an aspect of design for the costume national team for the SS11 fashion season, the collection really developed largely around essential fashion pieces in the form of complete looks. the selection of looks was very bulked up- shirts were matched to dress shirts & ties- overall i was very impressed. while not much in the design of the garments was particularly groundbreaking there was a certain ode to what makes menswear so timeless. an overall solid set for a spring collection, powerful use of neutral & classically fresh use of grey were seen in the collection.
