Since its origins, the style of Costume National has always stood out for its unique blend of two fashion cultures quite far from each other: Japanese culture, with its minimal and deconstructed lines, and Italian culture, world renowned for its impeccable sartorial quality.
"J is the sophisticated and proud glance of a geisha. As a delicate and graceful silk kimono, it expresses the elegance and charm of the Land of the Rising Sun’s thousand-year culture. Its fresh and sparkling top notes of LMR* (Laboratoire Monique Remy in Grasse) neroli oil, mandarin and lime are reminiscent of Japanese creativity whilst evoking a basic material element: water. The heart notes — an explosion of cherry blossom, orange flower absolute and rose bloom — are filled with brightness, gentleness and elegance. The captivating base notes, a harmony of cashmere wood, rice powder and musk, recall the depth of traditions. In synergy with the fragrance I, it forms part of an olfactory journey that goes from East to West and defines the CoSTUME NATIONAL identity, marking the crossroads where past and future intersect."
