Capes appeared on our radar last year, when an array of designers put their high-fashion spin on this classic cover-up. The trend is thankfully still going strong and giving us good incentive to go hands-free when we wrap up this season. See Max Mara’s capacious camel version for a timeless look that taps into the current 1970s bourgeoisie trend. Salvatore Ferragamo’s loose leather cape has a cool, Matrix-inspired vibe, while Loewe’s white knitted number and JW Anderson’s collared version have the (super) power to elevate even the plainest of outfits.
