Mood board: ‘We all have two hearts, one tough, one sweet,’ designer Ennio Capasa mused in his press notes. Though he typically fancies the former in his fashion collections for Costume National, this season he favoured the latter, adding a beautiful new feminine fluidity to his traditional razor sharp tailoring.

Best in show: Our favourite looks in this show were the softest, including a languid satin skirt and black coats dotted with iridescent sparkling crystals.

Finishing touches: Capasa kept his tough edge in accessories including his new pointed toe black leather wedge heel boots.
