Capes definitely remind me of the Autumn. All these capes are wonderful, but my fav are Erdem & Jaeger. Funny enough i only have one cape in my wardrobe, maybe i should consider getting another one soon.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend CC.

P.S I have a giveaway on my blog so please don't miss it :-)

Erika ~TiptoeButterfly~ said...

i LOVE capes - i have 2 but for some odd reason don't feel "free" enough in' em' - so i dont' wear - i think i just bought with the idea instead of making sure functional!

A cape is just so deliciously dramatic. I love it!!

Ashley said...

I LOVE capes. I am completely obsessed with them and I already have one, okay 2, and now everyone is finally going to jump on the bandwagon and cape up! I can actually see myself parading around in AT LEAST half of these...I should probably start mentally preparing myself to go broke now..

xoxo, Ashley

I'm still searching for the perfect vintage wool cape! Something with plaid on the inside maybe...I dunno. I can see it in my head but I haven't seen it in real life!

Kristin said...

The Junya Watanabe is so freaking amazing!!!

Jenny said...

The Rebecca Tylor one is my favorite because it looks wearable with anything...I'm not into capes much just because they loook too much like ponchos which I hate, but the RT one is really cute!

I love capes...and these are gorgeous. I especially love the simple silhouettes, and black is definitely a timeless color.

Dusk said...

Oh now... this is a post for me, I am the Queen of Capes!
I have so many vintage and non vintage capes, I love them!... my last blog post features a flying cape!

Love all of these but I guess if I had to choose at gunpoint, it would be the Alexander McQueen cape. Or maybe the Aquacustum. hmmm maybe the Matthew Williamson or... :)

Peter Breese said...

These are absolutely brilliant. Nice post CC.

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

What inspiring fall pieces. It makes any woman look smart and mysterious:)
