I don't have a problem with a safe approach, I find that wearable basics with a quirky twist often appeal to me the most, certainly more so than something whose trendiness would expire in a matter of weeks. But these days it's almost de rigeur for any designer piece, especially the basics, to have exceptional quality. I mean, beside the label, there has to be some rational justification for the huge premium they're charging - and sadly that's precisely what's lacking in Capasa's clothes. I was just going through my wool sweaters the other day, and noticed that while some of the better ones have a percentage of natural fibres such as cashmere, silk, and mohair mixed into them, the two that I have by CN were made with wool and acrylic. Acrylic? Isn't that, like, a dirty word among fashion slaves? I've sort of stopped buying CN, though I still find their runway pieces really attractive, hoping that one day they'll get the quality issue fixed. Let's just say their current direction of expansion isn't one that I had hoped for.
