Chiffon evening cape, 1930s
A vintage accessory, like this ethereal chiffon evening cape, adds a unique accent to any outfit. You can have the one-of-a-kind couture look for a fraction of the cost of a contemporary designer piece.
The cape is dramatically shaped with fluttering double layers of black chiffon that plunge from just below the bust in front to full length in back. The cape closes at the neckline with two hooks concealed behind the corded chiffon trim.
The scalloped edges are to die for! The scallop theme is repeated in the multi-layered petal collar (bottom picture). Is it the black chiffon cocoon or the exotic scalloping that creates a sense of inviting yet enigmatic intimacy?
The 2nd picture down gives an imperfect impression of how our sphinxian cape envelopes a stylish woman with the mystery of the night, making an unforgettable impression as she makes a dramatic entrance.
The condition is excellent and wearable.
One size fits all. The cape is 48" long at the center-back.
