Capes: Coming Around Again

-------

Capes have swooped back into the fashion spotlight since Hedi Slimane put them on the runway at his Saint Laurent debut last October. Stella McCartney, Chloé’s Clare Waight Keller, and Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy all showed daytime versions at their pre-fall presentations, while Louis Vuitton’s Julie de Libran opted for a floor-dusting evening number. Even menswear designers have gotten in on the act—see: Hardy Amies, John Varvatos, and Les Hommes. And if Tommy Ton’s recent snaps from Milan and Paris are any indication, we’re betting that cloaks will be the outerwear of choice at the Fall collections when they kick off in New York early next month.

    I love that the cape is making a comeback no only for women but for men as well. I have had more recent request from men than ever before. Men are finally starting to understand that they can add their own personal style to a cape allowing them to really show their personality. Thank you for the article.
