If there is one thing that emerged from the FW13 collection is that the cape, which tentatively appeared in the previous season has made a well and true assault onto the runways his season. So many capes, but which one to choose?
Dolce&Gabbana have been a supporter of the cape since it first started making a come backing the late naughties. In 2012 finally the cape has taken over the runways. From Hermes’ caped coats to Gucci’s and Valentino’s floor length capes and YSL’s luxurious fur version, the cape looks set to flow on our streets this winter.
The long cape with hood. A little highwayman chic for this season is a must. This wool felt cape with satin bow on the neck is quietly elegant. The push button fastenings make this cape a handy and warm must for winter.
The tweed cape. Tweed is another strong trend this season with lady like sixties fabrics taking over the season. Catch two trends with one stone with this shorter length tweed cape. Go for the cape suit- and match these cropped trousers.
The fur trim cape. A little bit of fur goes a long way into glamorizing something, even al already spectacular piece like this one. This bell shaped cape looks best opened and needs some strong accessories to lift the look. These tapestry print knee-high boots are stunners with or without a cape.
The fur cape. Shorter that the average cape, this cobalt blue xiangao lamb version is super cute. A splash of colour over the seasonal masculine fabrics like Prince of Wales print and tweed, the mini cape is less of an overcoat and more of an accessory.
The caped coat. A firm favourite here in the office, and a success on the runways, the caped coat is the essence of the FW 13 season. Feminine in its forms and demure in its appeal, the caped coat, with jewel buttons is the essence of the season’s trends.
The caped fur coat. For those who feel the glamour and elegance of the caped coat is not enough, well here’s the caped fur coat for your winter days. The xiangao lam fur, a curlier version of the astrakhan we al know and love add a touch of novelty to an instant classic.
