Capes: Dress to Suspense

Rick Owens, Spring Summer 2013

There is something exciting, mysterious and undeniably attracting in capes and cloaks. Gently draped on shoulders, they can hide the body in a fluctuating silhouette, creating a thrilling sense of suspense about what's hidden under.

A long time fashion favorite, they are still a statement piece for the FW13 wardrobe. We love them black, in heavy fabrics, better if paired with long glossy gloves to enhance the elegance and obscure imagery they suggest.
