This season’s chicest cover-up, the cape, comes with connotations of old-world grandeur. However, in the deft hands of designers including Burberry’s Riccardo Tisci, Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller and Fendi’s Karl Lagerfeld, the cape has been brought squarely into the 21st century. Think oversized prints, floor-skimming lengths and logo embellishments. Ultimately, though, it’s the enduring elegance of its flowing silhouette that sets this piece apart, and conveniently means that it can work over everything from double denim to chunky knits.
