Caped Crusaders

saint laurent cape

In New York this winter, a cape might just become your best friend.  Not quite a coat nor a poncho, this season’s cape is almost a hybrid between the two.  Seen all over the runways at New York fashion week for fall/winter 2014, the coveted capes are starting to hit stores.

Everyone from big name designers to major chains have created a cape this season. Saint Laurent has a gorgeous collection in Tartan and Tux Leather, Zara’s Hooded Cape With Piping  is a classic design as is the J.Crew version (which right now is sold out). Etoile Isabel Marant has a cosy Raquel Patchwork Knitted Cape (below right) and Band Of Outsiders Tuxedo version (below left) is wildly elegant. Forget a blazer or sweater this fall, and don a cape for an up-to-the-minute look.





  1. Love these capes! They’re definitely on my shopping list of ‘Fall Necessities’ 🙂
