Fall/winter trend: the return of the cape

Posted on

Just like in a fairy tale
If the very idea of wearing a cape seems whimsical, Etam takes this a step farther with the Chaperon, which lets you dress like Little Red Riding Hood. In a bright red wool and polyester blend, with a zipper and a hood, this cape will help you brave the elements this winter while making your way to Grandma’s house (Etam, €99.95). 

For those who prefer something more subtle, Liu Jo offers a grey cape with a classic collar and a traditional cut. Made of a half-wool, half-polyester blend, the Sunrise stands out for its synthetic leather panel around the collar, which adds a nice touch of urban style (Liu Jo, €319).  

Rock star style
Who said capes have to be old-fashioned? Maje proves the contrary with the Gloire, a cape made of lambskin leather for a rebellious style. An original alternative to the perennial biker jacket, this is one outerwear item that is bound to return to fashionistas’ shoulders winter after winter (Maje, €395).

Sometimes it’s all about the materials. This cape from Mango, with a simple no-frills structure, is made of a textured wool and cotton knit that effortlessly dresses up any outfit. Because being sophisticated doesn’t have to mean blending into the crowd (Mango, €89.99). 

The ultimate luxury
Joining the trend, Burberry has transformed its famous trench coat into an elegant cape. The brand’s signature cotton gabardine fabric takes on new life in this iconic and original piece, which was designed to commemorate the launch of the brand’s latest fragrance (Burberry, €995).
