This season Capes are front and center and with their layering effect are perfect for combating the chill of Fall. Not quite a coat not really a poncho, a cape is almost a mix of the two. Seen all over the runways from New York to Milan all designers have designed a cape for their Fall/Winter 2014 collections. ETRO’s version uses sumptuous materials, warm and luxurious, embellished with their famous paisley print. Akris Punto’s version is black and white textured wool with lavish fur trim. Sophisticated and timeless, the coveted Cape is all about easy and effortless dressing.
