Seen it, not impressed. If you want Costume, get Costume. I don't even see the design differences in the way you see them between Prada and Miu Miu, and Dolce & Gabbana and D&G for example. It's more like Marc Jacobs and Marc for Marc Jacobs, a more limited collectiomn of the same stuff, but poorer design, materials, and construction. Of course, I hate all things Ittierre SPA manufactured, from exte to Versace Jeans, so my comments should be taken as extremely subjective.

Why? That is to say why do you hate them? Jon.

The manufacturing is generally horrible, the fabrics (especially the synthetics) worse, and the designs garish. Not sure what else need be said...

What does the abbreviation "C'N'C" stand for exactly? - - - "C and C"?

"Founded in 2004, C'N'C Costume National is the Maison's street-wear brand. Aimed towards a consumer between 18 and 35 years old, the brand offers a new vision of urban culture that captures the young generation. [...] C'N'C CoSTUME NATIONAL, produced and distributed under license by ITTIERRE, offers ready to wear and accessories collections for men and women."

C'N'C apparently meant "Costume and Costume". Because that's exactly what they call their secondary line now that C'N'C has been canned.
