Not just for the likes of Sherlock Holmes, the cape has turned up more than once on some of the industry’s top designer’s sketch pads for Fall 2010. Don’t fear this silhouette! The designers took different takes on this this retro shape. From traditional styles with welted arm slits to the to-die-for over sized poncho-esque (I said “esque”, poncho’s get a bad wrap, um pun intended) Barbour/Belstaff inspired creation from Viktor & Rolf, you can go goth with Valentino or lady like chic with Sonia Rykiel. See, something for everyone! You could even get away with an a-line shaped coat or jacket set on your shoulders…instant cape! So you have your motorcycle jacket, you’re getting your trench coat and now planning to top off your outerwear collection with a cape. You have about 5-6 more months to get used to this idea. Don’t be scared.
