Add poise and drama to your eveningwear with a statement cape.


The sartorial effect of a simple black cape immediately adds a touch of magic to any outfit, and for those feeling more adventurous look for embellishment like pearl and feminine details like velvet bows.


A well crafted cape should feel fluid and bring a sense of comfort, especially towards the end of a glamorous evening when you want to wrap up on the way home. Max Mara and Alberta Ferretti both offer elegant versions with Ferretti transporting us to a Venetian ball with velvet floor skimming capes and some embroidered with golden thread.  If you’re looking for a real show piece then floor length silhouettes will create the maximum impact and are surprisingly flattering for any body shape.


See our favourite options above and go into the night with an added touch of grandeur.
