NYFW Trend : Capes.

Posted in Uncategorized by modman on March 30, 2010

My favorite trends of the fall collections are capes. Who doesnt love a cape? Fairy tale characters like Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood had them. Superheroes like Batman and Superman sport them. Why shouldnt we?

Capes come in all different colors and sizes for so many occasions. Why do I bring this up when we’ve been having sunny weather in LA for the last few weeks? Forecasts predict rain/showers for Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Although you might not be able to get these designer pieces just yet, dont hesitate to invest in a quality cape to get you through the rain, wind, and whatever else might blow your way (like snow in NY!).

Earth tones – Carolina Herrera, Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Matthew Ames

Textured greys – Cynthia Steffe, Rag & Bone, Paris 68, Zero + Maria Cornejo

Midnight blacks – Elie Tahari, Rad Hourani, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Y-3

Are there trends that you would like to see/broken down? I would love your input/comments/suggestions! Dont hesitate to send me an email or leave a comment! Make it a terrific Tuesday. : P

    Happy Tuesday! I think capes are important practically and stylistically. I have a wool green one and I have worn it lots since I got it. It can be as dramatic or demure. I enjoy your trend alerts btw.

      Im so glad you enjoy the trends.. I love spotting them and putting them all together. I wish I had more time/it was the fall so I can release them full force! I’m trying to be cognizant of the weather when I post fall trends.. hope it helps!
