Yes! I’ve been thinking about capes for at least two years now, and finally found a kimono/cape/jacket combo that was ‘me’ this year. I get some double-takes when I wear it…apparently people aren’t used to such dramatic outerwear (and really, it’s nothing compared to the ones above…)
Nice mixture of observations in how a cape can make you look and feel.
Excellent choice to have the photo on the left in black and white, heightening the romantic dreaminess in feel; the rearview photo of the girl in the right picture makes me think of the film “Don’t Look Now…”. I think it’s the 70s feel of the cape and the brogues and the colours.
My favourite is the photo of man in the middle, both as a portrait and for his “look”. But then Puss in Boots is a style icon (and I have a cape collection that makes me wonder if I have a Zorro fetish!)
